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.
