I don't know that the OP's tanks are for, but remember that standby generators
have no constant fuel usage pattern, expect whatever gas is used by periodic
exercising.  Also, in the middle of a long general power failure, it is
somewhere between difficult and impossible to get a fuel delivery.

Have you tried contacting the manufacturer of the RV regulators and asking
them? If they don't make one, they may know who does and can point you in
the right direction.

If you want to reduce the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere,
go plant trees.

Well, they are certainly bone stock standard for 100 lb portable tanks
(not generally seen on RVs, commonly seen beside houses with gas stoves
and dryers away from gas lines, up until the 250lb pigs become more
standard.) Any propane company that changes tanks rather than running a
tanker truck should have them - I don't know if they would have
limitations that would not permit connecting a 1000 lb tank. Remote
indicator is standard, but you'll need to come up with the electronics
part of it if you want a computer to report the little red ring showing
in the indicator. Usually it's just run on it's little copper tube to
the closest window, so the homeowner can look out and see the red.
