  6 Questions
Q: What is the breakdown of circuits in the 16 circuit automatic transfer switch?

by Joseph DaCosta from Rhode Island on January 22, 2014

A: The transfer switch with load center (16 circuit) is blank and does not come with circuit breakers. You can use any configuration required as long as you do not exceed the limitations of the generator.

Please consult with a certified electrician for proper generator sizing and installation.

by Jim, Product Expert
Q: What size gas supply pipe is needed from tank to generator?
by Richard Evans from Pennsylvania on July 20, 2013

A: Fuel pipe size is based on the distance from the fuel source and for the Kohler models the recommended pipe size and max distances are listed in the installation guide and in the Kohler spec sheet....

Q: How does the warranty work? Does it have to be installed by a Kohler certified dealer for the warranty work?
by Franz Gerster from New York on December 13, 2012

A: Kohler does not require a Kohler certified installer only a minimum would be a certified electrician.

When a Kohler installer does the installation and start-up the warranty starts the day he starts the unit.

When a certified electrician installs and starts the unit the warranty starts the day the unit was shipped from the factory.

All service and warranty work must be completed by an authorized Kohler service technician.

Q: Is the Kohler a whole house generator.For the price listed does that include everything?
by Mike Havenar from Ohio on August 19, 2012

A: This generator (14RESAL) is not designed as a whole house generator. The transfer switch that is included with the generator has a 16 circuit load center so you would only power 16 circuits you select from your existing electrical panel.

by Jim, Product Expert
Q: How far from house must this particular generator be placed (re: windows, doors and chimneys)? anxious to hear from you. thank you. Eleanor drew
by Eleanor Drew from Connecticut on April 27, 2012

A: The installation drawing is available on the site under the specs tab on the generator page.

Typically these units require 3 feet from any non-combustible surface and 5 feet from any combustible surface.

You must also have a minimum of 5 feet from any window, door or ventilation opening for proper exhausting of the unit.

Please always check with your local inspector regarding your specific local codes and generator installations.

Q: Hi Jim,
What is the difference between the 20resl and 20resal?
I don't see the composite pad on this unit 20resal?
Thanks,
Steve

by Steve from New Jersey on February 21, 2012

A: The new "A" version has the following features added:
** New Controller - RDC2/DC2
- New display readable in direct sunlight, 2 lines, 16 characters per line, no more codes.
- Built-In 2.5A battery charger using 120 VAC allowing deletion of the separate 6A battery charger
- Includes Ethernet Board, so no hardware required to be installed for OnCue
- RDC2 has built-in LED's on controller overlay to view status of RXT transfer switch and source availability while standing at the genset
- Real Time Clock - Allows setting of Exercise for any time and day you want
- Internal protection, no controller fuses to service
- Controller is fully potted for protection against snow and moisture

** New Silencer design to reduce sound levels
- 14RESA sound level during exercise is 63 dBA, and 67 dBA during normal operation
- 20RESA sound level during exercise is 64 dBA, and 69 dBA during normal operation

The composite pad is the same color as the entire unit and already attached to the bottom of the generator.

Love My Kohler
After all the hassle of obtaining permits, inspections and install by pros my Kohler 14 RESAL is functioning perfectly. I've only needed it a couple of times for a couple of hours - ( just long enough to get the wife off of my back for investing in this thing ) but its proven itself. Just went through one of the coldest and snowiest winters on record and it started once a week automatically in excersise mode without fail.

Peace Of Mind
After experiencing a few signicant blackouts, I decided to buy a standby generator. I wanted the conveniences of large generator with an indoor atomatic transfer switch. Since I got the generator, there has been only one moderately significant outage. I wish I could credit the generator for that. On the occassions when the power has gone out, the generator worked flawlessly. It is nice to know it is there when I need it. I did not connect the entire house, but I have the necessities and... more

Michael,
Kohler requires an authorized rep to do the start up. Basically this is to make sure things were installed correctly so the warranty will be valid.

Switch Gear / Instructions
If i was a master electrician I would not have had much of an issue with making the connection to my breaker box. I am a jack of all trades and have done many installs of new service, but this one had to make me think. If I had just a very short DVD of the install, then me and a lot of other folks who have never installed a switch gear would have been done a lot faster.

Also I had to find out (not in manual) that I had to install a water trap in the LP gas line or Kohler would not stand by... more

Replacing Generac 14kw
My 6 year old Generac destroyed itself (rotor threw off wire into the commutator) so instead of spending good money after bad, I decided to purchase a Kohler 14RESAL. First of all, the Generac was easy to install and included just about everything needed to be up and running. Not so with the Kohler. You get a generator and transfer switch.....that's it! The transfer switch doesn't even have breakers in it. It was not a hard install but I did have experience so it went OK (the reply to this... more

Excellant Choice
We installed our Kohler 14 Kw propane generator in October 2011 at our cottage in Ontario, CA. We currently have 89 hours on it, including 17 months of 20 minute weekly run cycles. The generator has worked flawlessly and we highly recommend this model. Our winter temperatures routinely get down to minus 30 F and below (minus 47 F is the lowest we've personally seen!). Before you purchase, just be mindful that a Kohler Certified Representative must commission your generator for the warranty to... more

Sweet Unit!
First, I will say that buying the generator from electricgeneratorsdirect.com was great. It arrived right on time and the lift-gate service worked great.

The instructions are clear and the frankly it is not rocket science. The electrician cost money because he has invested time and has good experience with the technical wiring. There are books like Stallcup's Generator, Transformer, Motor and Compressor, which can give you a good idea on what an installation by NEC Code should look like. I... more

My only complaint so far is that the On Cue software is Windows only. In the decade since XML applications were developed, it is inexcusable that your software is not cross-platform.

Sandy In Lovettsville, Va
This product is AWESOME!! I had it installed after the derecho hit us in June, which knocked out power for 4 days. I have automatic waterers for my horses which run on my electric well pump. I didn't want to ever go through that again!

Sandy knocked power out here - for me it was for 26 hours. This guy kicked in and kept running with no problems. I highly recommend this unit.

It's quiet, streamlined and works like a champ.

Long Island Hit By Hurricane Sandy
Installed last year! Hurricane Sandy hit Long Island bad. The generator has been running for five days, except for when I shut it down to check the oil.

So far, so good.
