Thanks, but I don't need a permanent unit. All I need is to run my well and furnace alternately and a few lights.Save yourself a bunch of headache's get a permanent NG unit sized for your house and a HF portable for around the property.
HF has units on sale most of the time.

I get all that. One can readily buy a gasoline / propane ready generator. My question was :Then don't bother with the hassle of natural gas. Get a gasoline generator and a few 5 gallon cans. Keep stabil in the gas and it wil last for years. Run your generator with a load on it every 3-4 months for half an hour. Put twist lock power plugs on your furnace and well and get a couple extension cords. Easy peasy. No transfer switch. No lock outs. No natural gas conversion. Generator will run anywhere you have gasoline.
So my question is can a generator set up for propane be reconfigured to burn natural gas relatively easily?

Yea, I think that is the answer.Get a generator that is set up to run on gasoline, not propane, and then get a conversion kit for that to run on either gasoline or natural gas from this company and see if that'll do what you want.

Yes, there are quick connects similar to an air hose, also used for gas BBQs.

Do they make quick disconnects for natural gas lines? Or are you going to have to put a wrench to it?
