Search Product Q&A's Answered by Jared, the Generator Expert

When positioning the generator, how close to an opening in the house wall can it be?
Paul R. 
from Virginia 
May 10, 2018
Answer
The distance required is set by local codes and would recommend checking with a local inspector to see what distance is required. The unit itself needs to be a minimum of 3 feet from the house and in some applications, it will need to be more.
+
What is the difference between the Kohler 20RESA and 20RESC?
Joe D. 
from Ohio 
April 13, 2017
Answer
The engine design on the Kohler 20RESC isn’t reverse compatible with the 20RESA, and the fuel pressure requirements are 3.5” water column on the 20RESC. Other than that…nothing.
+
Can this Kohler 8kW Home Standby generator be started remotely?
Kris 
from Idaho 
December 22, 2016
Answer
This unit is a standby generator only and will only power up when utility power is lost. The generator cannot be manually/remotely started.
