Jim, I have a Generac 5940 Portable Generator. Can I use a Gen-Tran RJB12410 power cord with that unit?? Thanks
John Healy

Answer
You cannot use that cord since it is a 20A cord and has the wrong connection ends. You would require a 30A 4-Prong cord....click link for details....

What is the decibel rating?
Pam 
from California 
January 24, 2012
Answer
Unfortunately, not all generator manufacturers publish the decibel ratings for their generators. Currently, there are no industry standards or requirements for generator manufacturers to follow when testing their generators for noise.

Due to this, manufacturers can test the noise level under any conditions they choose and, therefore, the results are not very reliable as each company will test under conditions that are favorable to their products.

At this time there are no db(A) ratings available on this model.

Is there any video or better instructions on how to drain oil and/or gas?

Answer
All maintenance procedures are listed in the owner's manual or if you are not comfortable doing the maintenance a local Generac service center will be happy to assist you.

I just received the generator I purchased from you (Generac GP5500 - 5500 Watt Portable Generator) and it comes with a bottle of oil. It does not say on the bottle what type it is. 30 weight or 10w30? Do you know so that it is the proper oil to use for the current temperature. Thanks, Larry
Larry

Answer
Generac uses 10W30 in their kits that get sent with the portable generators.
