There is a storage area welded into and even with the top of the frame just behind the propane tanks and the generator sits on that. If I can find some short one gallon gas containers they will go in the storage compartment under the generator.
My batteries are in a box, behind the propane tanks, and the battery box top is flush with the top of the hitch frame. I wonder if it is advisable to carry a generator, loaded with fuel, on top of the battery box due to the possibility of fuel/fumes leakage down into the battery box? Perhaps placing the generator into a plastic box before strapping down onto the battery box might be a solution.

Any recommendations folks?

BTW, have you been out to Alamo Lake State Park, west of Wickenburg? Solitude to the maximum, and hookups if you like.....

You might want to check out my post on the Bambi forum with pix showing how I mounted my honda generators on either side of the propane/battery area. I tested it this weekend and it works great. Doesn't seem to cut down my turning radius and I can plug in and run the generators anytime without moving a thing except for plugging the cord in.
