There are 2 disconnect switches. One on the exterior right rear corner. Another on the interior right firewall.

I have all my stuff locked up so if you need to disconnect mine, man handle the plastic door and bring bolt cutters to cut the electrical whip.

Believe me, the fire department will tear your stuff up if you make it too difficult for them to get to the breaker.

Mine is locked up too, mainly to prevent mischievous kids from tampering with it, but if the fire dept. needs to cut it off, all they have to do is break the window on the controller door and they can open the breaker in a couple seconds.

If my house is on fire, I won't complain about having to replace the cover. ;-)

The Generac generators 60 kW and lower have the 2017 NEC prime mover shutdown switches factor installed on the generators.  These switches will continue to meet the 2020 NEC 445.18(D) requirements for one- and two-family installations.  However, if the generator is to be installed in a commercial application, then an addition remote emergency stop station has to be installed for 2020 NEC compliance.

The hose draggers out by me are volunteer and based on past performance with all metrics, my house will be a total loss.  My top lid is locked, and the side plastic door, for what it's worth, has a golf bag level lock on it.  I know, futile effort, but it made me feel better putting it on.  I extended the 2PSI NG line out to my deck where I literally this month just finished adding 2 griddles, a grill, 3 fire pits/tables and 3 NG tiki torches and 2 free standing heaters.  Any one of them will be the point of combustion I fear.  The mini fire bowl you see in the picture is for s'mores.  7 regulators are under my deck, any one of them .......

Talk about gaslighting...  LOL

That looks pretty cool though.
