View Full Version : Longer hose for portable generator

Has anyone ever used a longer propane gas hose other than the short one provided with a propane generator? I was hoping to run a hose from my 40 gallon tank out to the generator away from the camper. Was wondering if the length would affect gas input to the generator. I really would like to utilize my units propane tank if I could without having to lift it out.

For winter camping, we had a 120 gallon external tank with a hose to the RV that was probably 15-20' long.

For our portable backup generator at home, our propane distributor made a 12' hose for me to connect the generator to a low pressure propane fitting on the side of the patio. The hose could have been longer.

Our local propane dist that sells gas appliances will make up custom hoses.
