I received the generator prep package. For those of you who purchased the whole enchilada, can you please share the method by which the factory tied the generator into the LP gas system? Additionally, if you could tell me whether there is any additional floor support that would be great as well. Any pics of the install would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have the same questions. It looks like the transfer switch is up behind the prep box. I really don't like the unsupported floor, but Dave said that is exactly how his is installed. I'm curious too where the LP tap is. My Montana had a "T" and a plug, but it was on the wrong side.

Just got off the phone with RW. We'll need to find a convenient spot to T off the main (black iron) gas line and run pipe to the generator area. Obviously, you need a flexible hose connection between the pipe end and genny. The fuel inlet connection on the Onan 5500 is 3/8" - 18 NPTF. Can you say, "generator prep package"?

On our RL the Tee is mounted in the Road side Propane compartment just after the switch over regand a flexible hose line runs from that Tee to the Genny.

mhs4771, Does the propane line for the generator run through the cabinet to the generator, our does it run underneath the cabinet?

These are so clean underneath compared to the Montana. There is much of anything underneath.

My LP line runs through the upper part of my battery area and then through the fire box to the left side of my genny. The only thing running underneath is the exhaust.

Yes it's a black rubber hose. Send me your cell phone number and I'll text you a picture of it or if you have an I-phone we can facetime it.

Finished installing the generator today. It's schweeeet! I'm accustomed to industrial transfer switches so bear with me on this one. I had the generator running and then connected shore power. In my mind, the transfer switch should "see" this as normal utility and direct the generator to shut down. This didn't happen so I turnedoff the generator manually. Is this how your switches operate or is there a time delay to generator shutdown and I simply didn't wait long enough? Thanks.
