Nice panel, installed great. easy for customer to use.
Had a professional electrician install this unit, and he did so very quickly. Several of the 15 amp circuit breakers on the unit had to be replaced with 20, as that's what the house circuits were using, but that's ok. Also, he said the plastic hose that enclosed the wiring was 'garbage' and he installed metal pipe, along with several more, and a metal box for the wiring from the house to the unit. We also struggled in getting the 'Utility' light to come on once all the connections were complete, so we called the Generac help line and - no joke - they would NOT assist us unless we were a dealer... SO, we re-read the manual and it states you need to use the included metal rod to rotate the selector unit inside the device to the up position, so we did this and VOILA! Everything started playing as it's supposed to. I powered up my generator, connected it, and the generator light turned on after flipping the switch. Even the electrician said (more than once) that this was an excellent, well-built unit, and well worth the money. His boss also said if he'd had to order it, he would have paid more - so folks, but it from HERE - FactoryPure - you won't get a better price. Finally - I installed this unit outdoors, near the electrical panel, and even though it's not specifically designed for that, it's still in a place where weather can't get to it (rain, snow, etc.). However, since it has exposed breakers, I'm going to build some sort of locking enclosure for it with an easy-access front panel to both further protect it from wind and dust, and from curious hands... :)
I gave a 4 star rating because you have to take off the cover to transfer power
from line to generator. other wise nice switch box that can be upgraded to automatic in the future.
I will definitely recommend this option if you are wanting to save A LOT of money vs a whole home standby generator. Only negative I have was I had to replace the 30 AMP breaker that came with it. Apparently it was a bad breaker and would not stay in the “ON” position. Replaced the breaker and system works perfect. Minus the breaker issue I had, it’s a great option.
Worked as expected
