    Once again, the tractor saves the day. I suppose in a pinch, I could use the truck engine, but at that point I could drive somewhere that has electricity.

    In the long run, with the amount of sunshine we have, a smaller 2000 and solar panels are the best solution.

    My buddy up north a ways had the same setup. Worked great but tied up the tractor during snow removal.
    So he got a diesel gen and installed it behind the house.
    I saw that run. Pretty awesome.......

    I have seen those setups, where it is tied into the main panel and kicks in automatically, that would be the best to have but I would have to sell the truck to get one.

    Having 4 tractors on hand solves that problem!

    I have a little 2300 watt gen that I would run furnace, fridge, and a light or two. It is loud but served mt well for 3 days during an ice storm also. Neighbors were going to motels. I was comfortable. Would run for 3 hours. So I would full it just before I went to work. Shoot home at noon, fill it, and take off. So I was without power for like 4 hours a day. Was a non issue. Did the job and I slept in my own bed.
    I have a 7500 watt gen now and whole house setup. Hope I never use it but it's there.

    @Marty65 Congrats on the wheels! Just want to post the part # for some TPMS from Denso - 550-0103. Rock Auto has them for about $32.00 each. With all this wheel swapping going on they might come in handy.

    Wouldn't be a warm reception if I found someone walking around the back yard.

    We have scout meetings in the park during the summer. Had to tell the boys no pokemon go during the meeting. The park was filled with people with phones in their faces. Kids and adults.

    I have three of these manual switches. Works great.

    Nothing automatic about it. but my generators are pull start anyway. They start first or second pull all the time. The cool thing about my setup is that I can take the little Honda's anywhere.
