    I wanted the duel fuel option just in case the gas stations aren't running. And gasoline gets old. Propane never does. I do need to find out how much power my AC unit is going to need to both run and start up. That's a necessity in Memphis. It was 93 today with 99 percent humidity. It's like living in a sauna. Ugh.
    I have an interlock on mine. The main thing to remember is to switch off all of the branch circuits before switching a main on. Then switch the branch circuits on one at a time while waiting a few seconds in between. My breaker box is in my basement so the first circuit that I switch on is the basement lights. I had to find and label all of the circuits in my old house.
    lionround, TSKnight and airslot like this.
