Propane setup for portable generator – power equipment forum power equipment forums anxiety attack what to do

I have a champion dual fuel 7500w generator that I am setting up for my home. I have already done the wiring and plug setup on my main panel and am now in the process of setting up a 420lb tank to have a larger volume of fuel in event of long duration power outages. diffuse hypoxic brain injury I have a 60ft 30A cable to try and keep the generator away from the house to reduce the noise level for my two young children and wife. My question is about the connection between the propane tank and generator itself. The tank will only be used to supply the generator and nothing else, so instead of running a hard line underground is it fine to just have a rubber line with some quick connects that i can install whenever necessary?


Will the generator run using the low pressure regulator on the tank or will i need to swap it to a high pressure one? is there a certain hose diameter that would be adequate to ensure the generator would have plenty of fuel available during a heavy draw from loads turning on? I have watched videos and tried to read what I could but havent found any people discussing using a soft line that would be removable.

What kind of enclosure/cover do you have for the generator when it’s running? You should not leave it exposed in rain or snow, which is usually the condition when the power goes out. I too have a 60′ cable (in my case for a GenerLink meter-mounted transfer switch) which runs over to the far side of my garage to the generator enclosure (pictures attached), which has automatic louvers and a large ducted fan for cooling.

I site the propane tanks (I have several in different semi-portable 20-40lb sizes) to the left of the enclosure (not shown in the pictures) on the side of my driveway, and the hose with the tank-side regulator can be seen poking out on the left side of the enclosure at the rear. This is a very quiet arrangement. anoxic encephalopathy I can run for almost 24 hours on a 40# cylinder.

You should not bury the LPG supply line (would need to consult local codes) and I would suggest siting the propane tank at the GenSet location. anoxia meaning My 420lb tank is behind my barn and the fuel company has no trouble reaching it with a hose from the delivery vehicle on the road 100′ away. Your generator came with a 3.3 ft. (1 m) LPG Hose with Regulator. It looks like it’s only rated for 20-30lb tanks, though. You may need to talk with your fuel company regarding pressure regulation on larger tanks. You can get a same-diameter extension hose locally to add length as necessary. anoxia My hose is about 1.5m long with quick disconnects. The flow through the provided hose will be more than adequate for your engine size up to 15′ or so.
