Run generator on propane system?

New to AS world. Plan boon-docking from time to time. Any thoughts on piping a LP generator into the propane outlet for grills etc. I will pack a spare tank, but it would be nice to tap into the AS tanks also. I know some fittings need to be changed to tap into the system, but doable on our 2013 Int. Ser. 23.

It is probably the best way to run a generator. Gasoline won't last about a month without causing damage since ethanol was added. All these storage issues go away with the propane.
