I am waiting for my gen to come in to hook it up. I am running my conduit from the transfer switch to my concrete pad I poured. I need to know what is the distance from the bottom of the gen to center of the holes for power hookup? It gives you the height and width for the gas hookup but not electrical. Thanks

Are you talking about these connections?  Are you not just going to use a flexible conduit for the last couple of feet?  (sorry pic is blurry)

Is it underground coming up behind the generator? Just stub it out of the ground and cut to height when the generator is in place. Just like the picture most everyone goes into the back of the generator with flexible raceway.

You can also go to our website and find your generator. Go to the product page. The installation manual will have dimensions and measurements.

I looked at the online manual only thing is showed was gas line connection. I was gonna use pvc all the way wasnt sure how could the flex would hold up to the UV. But i can go that route if need be.

Is your new generator a 22kw air cooled or a 22kw liquid cooled?

We use non metallic seal tight. It is designed and UL Listed for outdoor use.

Holds up better than some rigid PVC in fact.

The flexible conduit I have in the picture above has been in place since 2014 .... Looks and feels like it's brand new.

We brought Generac Wire to our demonstration generator out front of our building. Been there about a year now. Surface mount with calems type connectors. Totally out of code and not rain tight. We just wanted to see how it would hold up. It has lost all its orange color. However it has not lost its integrity in any way. So it will absolutely last. Our inspectors won’t allow it. They alway play their subject to physical damage card.

That's what I did, also a 22kW.  I buried my SCH 40 runs and my gas line 5 feet below grade and then came up into a PVC box, and the liquid tight conduit from there straight to the generator.  My gas is similar, ran my natural gas the same way.  I ran 3/4" lightning strike 2 gas line, also 5 feet below grade, in a PVC conduit sleeve then came up to the left of the generator.  Above ground it went to a regulator, then the last 12-13 feet via 1-1/4" black pipe to the generator.  Then a shutoff valve and then the little gas line whip that came with it.
