24 hours running all three ACs, water heater, fridge, ice maker, satellite tv, and stereo no issues! 8 gallons of fuel so far. Well worth it! No more power dropping out

Been waitin' for this post... I'm impressed!!!

My next toyhauler I think I'll just get the generator prep and do the same, I'd rather have the ginny on the same fuel as the TV, especially with the results listed above.

Good call Don!!!

I like this mod.

Do you know the weight difference between your old gasoline 5500 and the new diesel 7500?

About 200 pounds. I just added a few pounds to the TV airbags and all was happy.

Up until now, future plans were to eliminate the LMS in the coach as I had a several issues in the past related to power dropping completely out for a few seconds several times per day. This weekend there were zero issues and everything ran off the generator with no issues.
