adding a generator to wildcat fifth wheel

anyone ever added a built in generator to the front compartment on a wildcat fifth wheel? Looks like there is plenty of room for one.

I have been wanting to do the same thing in my 312bhx. Several wires inside the front storage area. I need to get a wiring diagram to see if it is possible.
I have a 4000 watt commercial gen sitting in the garage waiting on the next hurricane.
An external exhaust pipe is available at Camping World.
My lighting is led so the only thing we need the gen for is the A/C.

Talking Generator in wildcat 5er

I have a 2008 with a 5000 watt onan in the front compartment with the exhaust down under trailer & exiting to the road side--works GREAT!!!!!! has a remote start switch at rear just inside of the door-- removed 1 of the propane tanks and had a 15 gal square fuel tank built to slip up in from the bottom all works fine.

Why would you want to ?
Carbon monoxide risk.
Heat generated
Gas fueling
Possible fire hazard

No thanks .
