Q: Can this transfer switch be mounted on an outside porch? Weather resistant?
by Joe Stapleton from Washington on September 28, 2012

A: The transfer switch that comes in this kit is for indoor mounting only due to the exposed breakers.

We do offer outdoor style switches just not kitted with a generator.

You would buy the generator and switch separately....

Delivery

Turns out the container had been bumped hard enough in transit to snap the choke lever off. Of course this was discovered the next day when the generator was unpacked. But EGD was really helpful, told me what to do, always got back to me, and delivered a new replacement gen.

Northern Wisconsin Power Outages
After experiencing more frequent and longer power outages, we decided to finally try to do something about it. We purchased a Generac generator from GeneratorsDirect. It was an easy and fast process. Putting it together was a snap. With the help of an electrician friend, we installed the transfer switch with no problems. Tested the system and worked lllike a charm. About 2-weeks later got hit with a wind and rain storm about 1:00 A.M. Power out. Waited until about 6:00, went out plugged the... more
