  • I appreciate your response.

    I looked at Generac. They have a good advertising budget and sell at all the box stores. Around here we have Lowes, Homedepot and Menards. Menards offers 11% in store credit for any purchase in the store. That's a nice credit since they all charge the exact same price. But I decided against them to go with Kohler.

    The guy who has the Kohler will bring it to me, set it, let me find installers for wiring, trench, propane connection, and then he comes back and does start up. He installs in the county he located in but doesn't have permits/license in this county and apparently doesn't want to deal with them.

    He quoted $6550 for the unit, plus carb heater $170, plus Interstate Battery $145, delivery, set generator, start up and registration $600 for a total of $7485 plus tax. All that seems reasonable to me. If I can stir up a licensed electrician I'm hoping to get that done for $2500 or less.

    Yes. In my opinion it's worth it. If you can turn the genset to direct the exhaust away from you, even better.

    Thanks for you input. I just talked to an electrician and he's coming by tomorrow morning to look at the project and give a bid. Maybe I can get this done by winter.

    Awesome. Do look at that regulator valve that I had to replace when you get yours. That was pretty frustrating to find out what was causing the low engine rpms.
    Hello -- I saw your post about a large capacity alternator. I have seen a kit for my B2601 to take it from 14.5 AMP to 40 AMP. Do you know of a larger one? Thanks,

    Mike

    It looks to me like the only one available for the B'01 series is the 40 amp. The 60 amp appears to only be available for the large B with cab (heat/AC).
