We have the the 5500 Onan LP, it runs off the (2) 40 LP cylinders, you can do this work yourself, but being propane, I would have someone qualified hook it up for me.
I have taken some pictures of our set up, and as soon as DW returns from the store I will try to post them for you to see.

Just T (I'd add a valve there also to isolate Benny if necessary) off the inlet side of the changeover regulator as shown in the pic & your local propane dealer will have or can make any length hose you'll need, this should be the easy part of the install.

I hooked mine to the high pressure side of the regulator. Did not want to run out of propane if the regulator Calvert runs off your regular bottles. I went to 40lb and carry 2 30s when travelling
