I just received an email from RV Consumer Group (kinda like an RV safety watchdog organization) concerning an apparent lawsuit against Coachmen RV and a leasing company regarding a propane
Quote from RV Consumer Group: "According to reports, four adults were seriously burned when propane
exploded. Details imply that the exhaust of the generator
was close enough to cause the propane
tank to overheat. The tank's pressure valve then released the gas (as designed) and the running generator
then ignited the gas. This tells us that propane tanks and generators are not "buddies". They should never operate "shoulder-to-shoulder". How close they should be depends on too many variables to be absolutely sure, but 36 inches should be the lower limit on distance apart."
I don't have a generator
and have no experience with these issues, but thought I'd pass it along to those of you who have generators (mounted or otherwise).
