A note for your installer: This Kohler generator has been preconfigured for off-grid use and Propane (LPG) operation. It has been fully commissioned and test operated by qualified technicians before being disconnected & prepared for shipment. You only need to 1) ensure the generator is installed level in an adequate location respecting clearance requirements, 2) primary tank regulator is sized correctly, and 3) electrical connections made per code requirements. Gas supply connection is standard 1/2" NPT. Once all connections are made & gas pressure/leak tests are passed, simply reconnect the battery and test run the unit. It is the installers responsibility to install this generator to satisfy any regulatory or building code requirement.
A note about warranty: most standby generators will boast lengthily warranties of 5 years or more, but only if they are installed and used as a backup power supply during a power failure. The Kohler 14RCA is no different and has the same 5-year 2000-hour warranty, however this is the only model in this series that is specifically designed for off-grid use including an 18-month 1000-hour warranty when installed and used for off-grid purposes (non-standby). It's important to note that if this generator is not installed per the instruction manual with start-up checklist and maintenance records kept, warranty will be void. Please read the warranty details before ordering.
A note about the cold weather package: Canadian winters are tough. If you're off-grid you know that starting a generator when it's -25C isn't always easy. This generator comes equipped with the cold weather package, which heats the battery, carb, regulator, and oil to make starting easy. The power requirement is about 185 watt and you need to have your inverter powering this circuit. However, we've tested this generator under similar conditions and if you're starting the generator on a regular basis, you may not need to waste valuable energy on the heaters. We suggest testing for yourself for your specific area.
A note about installation location: If you allow snow accumulation around the enclosure, the generator may not operate. So you will either need to remove snow from the area around the enclosure after each storm, or ensure it's installed elevated above the ground. Check out our Kohler 14RCA Off-Grid Generator Bundle which includes a 2" concrete pad and 16" aluminum stand (both engineered & certified to CSA standards specifically for the 14RCA) to raise your generator off the ground safely and easily. Also, if you are in a region with high winds or frequent blizzard conditions, you may want to take additional precautions to avoid snow from blowing through the enclosure and accumulating inside, or be sure to check the generator after a winter blizzard before starting.
