Do you use a generator?

For those that use a generator while camping I found this conversion to propane... and I believe one of them will work off the low pressure BBQ port on the side of many of our RV's

I wandered the site as I wanted to see some dB measurements. Can readily see the advantage of using the LP already being carried.

Just curious if anything has to be done to the stock generator. If this is a out-rigging thing might be a good "PLAN B" thing to bring along in case you run out of gasoline and need to run the generator??? Of course I guess if you always have an OKLAHOMA CREDIT CARD card handy, you can always suck some gas out of the truck if you need it...

I almost feel like you have to change something on the generator side to make it all work... Not just a stand-alone conversion kit???
