    My wife wanted a Gen she could start so

    I got one for her and it has BlueTooth and shows the fuel level, shows how much percentage of load you are using as well. Also lets you shut it down etc. on the screen and on your phone with an App.
    I have the Manual Transfer Switch and the Correct Cord already installed to feed the sub-panel already. As it was used for the older 1993 8HP Briggs powdered 4000 running one.
    It ran the whole home 110 just fine so this one should be a cakewalk.

    I just bought a Ryobi, just a little smaller. It is built the same, or it looks like it.

    Have you run the Ryobi much yet?

    I'm still on the fence if I want a Honda inverter or just get an actual generator.

    I saw them at Home Depot the other day. I like my Ryobi tools for what they are, so I figured I'd look into them. Most generators use another company's motor anyway.

    Just a reminder, if you need to use your Gen for the whole house Kill the line going to the pole. Pull the main! Braker or fuses. Running your generator plunged into the house without pulling the main Backfeeds the power line going to your house. Anyone working on the lines near your house can be electrocuted!!! That includes tree trimming if the lines come down.
    I guess it's cause of were I use to work that Backfeeds is my pet pev but that can be a real Killer after the storm.

    I will give you my Red Rider Carbine Action 200 Shot Range Model Air Rifle when you Pry it From My Cold Dead Hands

    I am not an electrician and would never attempt. Installing a new light is all I feel safe doing.

    My 2 cents. Spend the extra money and get the inverter. There's no cost savings in saving a few dollars on a generator and burning up a refrigerator or frying a computer.
