This is just too big of a generator in my humble opinion. It's exactly the kind of pit you might want to avoid. For under 4 grand you can get the right generator for your implementation, with a new warranty and the transfer switch included. I have a great dealer, they will bust their balls to help you with the install. Call them at (888) 294-5537
. I wish you luck, I like projects too. On a side note, I saw your nickname and if you are ever at 57C let me know. I have a small 6 seater, a TBM 900.
Thanks! At this point I think I’ll have to go ahead and give it a go. If I need to increase the load past 30 percent on weekly runs I’ll figure out a way to do that, maybe utilizing the additional breaker to power my 5th wheel but I’ll see where we are at when we get it going. If need be load banking could probably be arranged every so often. If it doesn’t work out I can look back and say that was fun.
I do fly for a living but haven’t been in a small plane since 2011 although a ride in a TBM would be something I’d hop into! I think the closest I get to that airport is either Rockford or Madison and rarely do we overnight unless we break down.
