How about a diesel, that would give the longest runtime.

The OP originally asked about a gasoline powered gen and fabrication of a custom tank for installation under the trailer. He has since decided to go with the LP powered gen. Diesel powered would represent the same issues as gasoline in so far as where to put the fuel tank.

Virtually all fifth wheels that are NOT toy haulers that have a gen, will be LP powered.

Onan 5500 Install

I had the Onan 5500 installed on my 2009 Montana 3150 in the front compartment when it was new. I didn't want LP for a couple of reasons, less power, using LP so I went with a gas generator. It works great the gas for the generator is stored in a boat gas tank, the generator has a supply hose that is ducked up in the trailer. When I want to run the generator I hook up the quick connect connection and start the generator.
I put the gas tank in the back of the truck with not in use.

I never heard of someone relying on solar for their a/c. you learn something everyday.
I am curious on why you even want to install a generator? we 'dry camp' at the key west military base in the winter and just about ALL rv with preinstalled generators.....500 rvs use only their small generator like a honda and NEVER run there large installed in rig generator.



I have a side quesdtion.....are you really dry camping in florida? in the summer? Why else would you want a generator or solar? My opinion, just mine, is just plug in and don't waste your money.

I'm setting up the Rig to full time we are leaving Florida this fall heading to the west coast and want to be self sufficient. I'm probably over killing it for sure but i would love to be able to just boondock with our dogs in the middle of nowhere and not have to worry about power or heat and air.
