Q: Is the transfer kit that is included in the GP5500 enable me to connect to my panel? So, with the panel included I just need to get a electrician?
by Dan Rinaldi from Connecticut on July 06, 2012

A: Dan, that's right. If you buy this kit, you just need the electrician to connect the transfer switch directly to your main electrical panel.

Wayne,
We actually have an article about gasoline and fuel stabilizer; Gasoline Stockpile - How to Safely Stockpile Emergency Gasoline

It also states it page 15 of your owner's manual.

Wayne,
The owner's manual for the generator is fairly straightforward and should be sufficient for someone with little equipment experience. As for the transfer switch instructions, we always suggest hiring a licensed electrician for the job.
