I just obtained a relatively new, still in the box, 20kw Model 5887 from a neighbor who decided they did not want it. It does not have any automatic standby switch, which is good because I have, and want to keep, my manual disconnect to utility power that I use now with my large portable generator. I just want to make sure that I wouldn't have any problems simply wiring it to the generator side of my manual disconnect without using any automatic standby switch and turning the generator on manually when needed. Thanks.
What is the amp rating of your disconnect? What amp service do you have? What is the amp rating of the gen. breaker? 100amp or 125amp.
