We have a couple of air cooled 20kw revolution generators 6244 purchased in july 2013.

these have been sitting unused on their pallets and never activated.
if installed now and activated subsequently does the warranty start the day of activation or is it expiring soon??

at time of purchase,generac customer service indicated that activation date was considered start date of warranty.

A couple years back, I did a warranty repair replacing an early version Nexus controller with a later one, conversion kit and all. The owner had confirmed with Generac it was under warranty because of the late start date, and I got paid no problem.

The Generac warranty starts upon activation of the generator.
Does it matter if you're the original owner, as long as it hasn't been activated or run?
