There are two models of Honda 3000 gens. One is much quieter than a 2000 , the other louder.

Twice as loud, which means 3dB higher.

Nowhere in this statement did I suggest using it in a campgound

As others noted, there are 2 Honda 3000s. The lighter, more expensive "Handi" is louder than the full-sized EU3000iS, which is why I said the full-sized one is quieter than a 2k.

Is the auxiliary port downstream from the propane tank regulator? That would mean two regulators, one on the trailer and one on the generator. Did you remove the regulator from the generator?

There is a part on the side of the converted generator that sort of looks like a regulator and I'm not really sure what it is, I suspect it's some kind of "LP carburetor" that serves to mix the LP and air. The LP feed for the generator is connected downstream from the stock LP regulator on the Airstream and the whole setup works just fine. The generator did ship with a separate regulator to be used when hooking up directly to a standard propane cylinder (which I do to use then hooked up to the AS) so I am assuming that it is designed to work after the regulator.
