    I am sure you already know what kind of generator you are going to buy. I went with a 7KW Generac. I am familiar with these generators, which we use to power up cell towers and operations centers. I figured if they are trusted in commercial operations, they are good enough for me.

    No matter what you buy, Periodic Maintenance and testing is an absolute must. You don't want to find out something is not working, after the power goes out.

    I like your list of essentials. The well pump is the only thing I power up constantly. Everything else gets switched on or off as necessary. That saved me a lot of money on power requirements. Just a thought.

    Yeah, ran my big Yamaha and little Generac for awhile on XMas day and will fire up the .9K 2-stroke today to make sure it's good to go. Have close to a gallon of mix ready for that, plus the 1/2 tank in the unit. Thanks for reminding me, though, as I didn't add Stabil to the last couple of cans of gas when I filled 'em. I'll take care of that today.
