Note that this is my 3/8 inch quick connect setup.
This reliably supports a 3400 watt Champion Dual fuel inverter generator. The generator propane hose regulator setup has been modified to run off either the low pressure port or a propane bottle directly, as desired.
My 2007 Airstream did not come with any quick connect port. I added this setup myself. It’s documented in the “which generator” thread. I went with 3/8 quiche connectors and a larger 1/2 inch propane low pressure hose to assure the flow to the generator would be sufficient at the end of 24 feet of hose.
I have two 12 foot hoses with quick connects to get the generator noise and fumes far away from us when in use. The power cable just reaches that far.
I still need to add a few clamps to keep things steady. Note the large diameter ‘split loom’ tubing on the rubber hose that leads to the regulator going off on the right in the top picture. This is to keep UV light off the hose to make it last longer.
I included a 1/4 turn propane rated shutoff valve for the quick connect, and another for the entire propane supply for emergencies. Quicker than trying to get to the tank valves.
