So is it better to have some fuel in the generators tank before you connect the remote tank or does it not matter? Thanks for the explanation and pictures. This is a good alternative to the kits available online.

I'd fill it all the way up

It will start the syphon action sooner. If the gas can is on level or below the generator, the syphon is created by the vacuum and maintained by the vacuum and not gravity.

Planning another camping trip for the end of the month. Looking forward to a few days in the CTC. Not sure what improvements I will make before I go this time? :thinking:

Went riding for Three days in Ocala NF this week. Can't believe I needed the AC in Dec. . Glad I brought it. :-) Was a good trip. I did note that the solar panels don't work too well in the shade. Besides running the AC, I did need to run the generator a bit to top of the batteries at night to make sure all the electrics work overnight.

Sold this trailer this weekend. It was sad to see it go... but I am on to a new build. Going to a larger CT and will use my lessons learned and build even better this time around.
