Hi Mike I had a 100 amp transfer switch installed when I built my house this year for future use. Can I use it with the 7kw Generac generator?

Answer
These generators are brand specific. We would recommend you call Generac directly at 888-436-3722 with your name, model, and serial number of your transfer switch for them to verify the compatibility to this 7KW.

Unfortunately we do not have that data base. Unless you have the RTWS Generac switch then yes you will be able to use that.

If you have any additional questions please let us know.
