I am looking at possibly mounting a diesel QD5500 in front of the 5th wheel hitch in a D3500 diesel DRW pulling a Redwood 36RE.

I like not having the additional weight on the 36RE and utilizing diesel from the truck for power. Not really sure how to get power from generator to trailer. Read some place where they added a shore extension cord, connecting to the generator.

Any thought?

I have a yamaha 4000 watt generator (gas). The weight is about 170 lbs. I built some ramps to get it into the back of the truck. I could run it in the truck but I take it out to run it (keep it out of the rain and sun). There is an RV adapter that plugs into one of the sockets on the side of the generator. On the other end of the adapter is a "std" 30 amp style plug.

I would think all you have to do is plug your trailer land line into the generator.
That's what I do.
