    I sprung for a whole house generator during my renovation and, thus far, it has worked great. Two outages of several hours each and, other than an initial blink, worked just fine after it kicked on both times. That said, it’s much cheaper just to...

    Nice. I was kind of torn, but they kept saying the direct cable sounded best. I think it’s Crystal Cable. But you give up some flexibility. You have that! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
