If you have a Diesel truck I would get a Diesel generator and mount it in the bed of the truck and not have to mess with propane or gas. It would also do away with the vibration of the trailer when running and cut down on noise.

The main disadvantage of having genset mounted i the truck is the RV itself is not always self contained.
If the truck leaves the electricity leaves.
May not be a big deal all the time. But on occasion it will create an issue.
Want go into town with the truck there goes the electric. If it's hot out there goes the A/C.
I prefer to have the RV independently self contained.
My RV is parked in the back yard, We can just stay in it as long as necessary no truck required.
We have stayed in the on short notice due to power outage, hurricane, storms etc. Its nice to be self contained when you need it
Your correct, I was thinking how I use a generator. My 5er and TT have built in Onan's and fuel tanks. I mainly use them for stops on the way and I'm connected to the truck anyway. Most of my destinations have power. So while a truck bed generator would work for me it might not work for others.
