I've got a Generac 22KW propane unit I put in when I built our house in 2007.
Basically a 1000CC Honda V-twin Motorcycle engine with a generator attached!
Te only thing I've ever needed to do is change thew oil and air filter twice a year and changed the plugs once since then!
Poured the concrete pad for it when I built the house and added an automatic switch for power change over from house current.
Power service was really poor when I built the house but the Co-Op ran new lines in 2010, and since that time I think it has kicked on 2-3 times!
Handy thing to have though! Keeps everything on it the house including A/C and 3 freezers in the garage for meat!
PS: Plugs are a PTB to change!
