yup every thing shakes rattle and rolls on these gen sets...
make sure to use flex lines on electrical as well as gas lines.
as well as fine stranded wire on the electrical
we use good branded copper soow cable on the electrical.
and inside flex conduit for extra protection when doing an gen enclosure.
Help me out…I don’t see the before and after-fixed?

Congratulations!!!! Your 20 kw should easily power everything you have. My 13 kw diesel will start my 3 ton AC along with everything else (mini-split and a 2 zone mini split.)

I had my first power outage three days ago after gen install. Wife and I were watching programs about 1500 hours, the lights flickered off and on three times and then the TV UPS activated. 20 seconds later the generator started. Our power outage lasted 20 seconds.

lol!
too close to the project!
been there!
still pretty cool

did they get the basement window blocked off?

also smoke test the area for house air leaks on the side with the gen set.
that CO thing can build up fast if you have air gaps in the house.

Yes. Blocked off the crawl space vent today. The inspector has 14 days to stop by and sign off on the install. I was really amazed at how fast the generator kicked in after the power was cut off for the test.
