Why not put them in the AS?

I'm brand new to AS, we get our first soon, a FC23D bunk. Been enjoying learning on these forums, my first post, here.

Looking at the Honda 2000. Im looking at the propane mod one on Genconex, all mods are internal, no outside regulator. I just plan to store it in the AC during travel then secure it for theft outside when using.

Two would weight 100 pounds, and the trailer can handle an additional 1200 pounds of gear when new?

Am I missing something?

Thanks!

Welcome, troutboy (no real name given). Check out the US Carb tri fuel conversions. Allows you to still use gasoline if necessary. I believe they still have a sale going on.

Thanks Cheif. I saw those. Actually bought one for my house Genset. I asked Motirsnorkel to send me a picture if their mod. They have a large external pressure regulator on the front outside. I can post a picture of the setup they sent. I didn't like the added footprint. But the cost and ability to use three fuels may outweigh for others.

Also in my research, you have to run the unit on gasoline for two hours for the time to fill the bubble. So there is a lingering gasoline smell I was told by abuser.

If someone wants to see the picture I will post it.

Thanks
Rich

Rich, I ran my Yamaha 2000 with a measured 1 qt of gasoline for break-in. It ran for 2 hours and 20 minutes before stopping. I left the gas cap off for a couple of days. Zero residual gasoline or smell remains. Nice to not have to deal wth carrying spare gas or having a gasoline smell. Also nice to have the option of using gasoline if the need arises.

Cheif, do,you just use your LP from your trailer, or bring a separate cylinder? Also, is the pressure regulator on the outside create any foot print issues?

Thanks
Rich

Rich,, I have a spare 20 seconds line bottle. Having the conversion unit on the end is not a problem to me.

Andy's comments re: HD TV contributing to AS frame-damage might be attributable to WD hitches imparting addt'l stresses to the AS frame due to the load/shock sharing. A traditional ball-hitch (such as I've found apropos to Bambi's) mightn't have that problem, however the turning radius is a concern I share. I carry my gen in the PU bed beneath a hard (Bak-Flip) tonneau cover. (out of sight, out of thieves pea-brains)
