Excellent generator, poor documentation

,
July 10, 2013
By Decalin
from Northern California
"I installed this generator for a 2800 sq ft manufactured home on 5 acres; it runs the whole house. We have electric water heating and oven. We use propane for furnace heating, stove top and running the generator. We are far up in the mountains and we live with snow and heavy weather so when power goes out, you stay in the dark. Today the power company shut us down for 7 hours but the generator automatically started within seconds and we hardly noticed; 100 ft away we can't hear it in the house. It even runs the 4 ton air conditioner; it was 90 degrees today so we were really pleased. It staggered a bit when the air conditioner started, but carried the load impressively.
The unit is excellent, but the installation instructions are not good at all. The electrical wiring diagram is confusing and misleading. The conduit which carries the sense wires and the power for the battery charger had to be done twice because the documentation was unclear. I am an engineer so they had to try hard to fog my brain. Once I got it installed and running, the word spread and I was asked to solve a neighbor's Generac installation problem 5 miles away, which I did. Suggestions for conduit material for the power cable and the sense wires would have helped. The Nexus smart switch is very impressive and it works flawlessly. Top drawer stuff.
Overall, we are the envy of our neighborhood.

Generac 14KW with Nexus Smart Switch

,
January 9, 2012
By SteveS1
from Woodbury, CT
"Ordered this after Tropical Storm Irene.in August 2010 Had installed and up and running the day of a severe October 2011 snowstorm In Connecticut. We lost power from this storm for 7 days. The Generator worked like a charm. Ran 24x7 without a single glitch. We checked for oil and added just a minimum to be safe. This unit powered my entire 3440 square foot home which includes two refrigerators, furnace, dryer, well pump, etc. I highly recommend this item !"
