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. DO NOT order this generator without first reading the warranty details and requirements 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.
Our most popular generators for backup power provide award-winning reliability and performance. When you lose power during an outage or storm, a hard-working 14/20 kW KOHLER® generator keeps your appliances working, the heat or AC running and your security system on.
Every KOHLER® generator is equipped with a heavy-duty, commercial-grade engine that stands up to extreme weather.
In just 10 seconds, your KOHLER generator automatically restores power to a 5-ton (60,000 BTU) air conditioner, major appliances and electronics.*
We've got you covered with 5-year, 2,000-hour protection, and a corrosion-proof enclosure that's built to last. (18-month 1000-hour for non-standby warranty applications)
KOHLER generators have received several awards, including the Most Valuable Product (MVP) Award 2010 by Building Products magazine.

Estimated Shipping Times-
If your order is received before noon Eastern Time, your order will typically ship out within 24-48 hours during business hours Mon-Fri. This is dependent on stock and availability. Larger items like solar systems and items that ship on a pallet may take longer. Busy seasons and demand may affect this timeline. Feel free to contact us at 1-844-603-4743, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an updated timeframe if you require something urgently.
Free Shipping – Any item that is listed on our website with free shipping adheres to the following policy:
Free shipping applies to standard residential or business addresses only. This covers 99% of our customers. However, if you live on top of a mountain, on an island with limited ferry access, need a plane or helicopter to reach your home, your nearest neighbour is a penguin, you live in a yurt in Death Valley that only donkeys can reach, or other remote location that delivery trucks cannot easily access or are outside of their traditional delivery routes, additional shipping costs may be incurred. We will contact you before shipping your order to confirm if additional charges may apply. We reserve the right to notify you after you have purchased an item of any additional shipping or handling charges necessary to deliver your order. If notified of any additional charges, you also have the right to modify or cancel your order for a full refund. Regions that are subject to a surcharge include, but are not limited to the following:
- Northwest Territories
- The Islands of British Columbia
Larger items that would require shipping on a pallet would ship LTL.
Less-than-truckload, also known as less-than-load (LTL), is a shipping service for relatively small loads or quantities of freight. Less-than-truckload services are offered by many large, national parcel services as well as by specialized logistics providers.
Please see below for the shipping procedure for LTL shipments.
LTL Shipments may include appliances, solar panels, batteries, Cinderella Incinerating Toilets and wood stoves.
Curbside Freight Shipment Procedure-
Most appliances, solar equipment or larger shipment items ship via tractor trailer or straight truck and are limited to a curbside delivery. Freight carriers are specially trained and equipped to handle oversized and fragile items safely and efficiently. Please refer to the steps below to know what to expect for the delivery service. Please note that these items cannot ship to P.O. Box.
Step 1 – Within 24 - 48 hours after your order is shipped you will receive a confirmation email providing tracking information.
Step 2 – Once the shipment has arrived at your local freight terminal, transport will call you to schedule a delivery appointment. Appointments are made Mondays – Fridays and you are usually given a 4-hour window to expect delivery during business hours. It is important that the phone number provided when ordering is a working number to contact you. If an appointment is not made within a 24-hour period of being contacted, storage fees may apply. You would be responsible for these fees.
Step 3 – Curb side delivery completion – The driver will arrive with a lift-gate truck (truck sizes vary) and will lower the order onto the ground at the edge of your driveway. Due to company policy the driver is not authorized to move it further. Curbside delivery service does not include set up or assembly of items, or removal of packaging materials, nor does it include bringing the items inside the home.
Step 4 - Upon delivery, you will need to inspect and sign a Proof of Delivery Receipt for the shipment. Check for visible damage and if any damage is seen make sure that it is noted on the delivery receipt and take pictures of the damage. You have the right to refuse the delivery due to damage shown. For all transport damage issues please contact us immediately. Please note: Shipping is unavailable to P.O. Boxes
What to know before accepting your delivery-
The Cabin Depot wants to make sure your order delivers on time, accurately, and damage free. So, we have some important information about receiving a new order.
We carefully inspect all orders before they leave our warehouse to ensure they are accurate and in perfect condition. If you haven’t received a shipping e-mail confirmation with tracking, and are curious about the status of your order, please let us know at any time by calling
1-844-603-4743 and select option #1.
Whenyour order arrives, you will need to carefully inspect immediately before the truck driver leaves or attempts to have you sign off on the paperwork. Paperwork is normally provided, and your signature requested by the driver to acknowledge your order was delivered. If they have no paperwork for you to sign (usually a BOL or Freight Bill) you can request it. Some drivers will want to drop your order and leave asap as they have other deliveries to make. But remember, you paid to have them deliver your order in perfect condition, and they will wait for you to inspect it. If you sign the delivery paperwork without noting any discrepancies or damage, the freight company will not accept a claim and make the customer liable for any damage discovered. So, this inspection means that you should: Open all boxes Count all items Ensure the items shipped are the correct model / type / colour.
DO NOT sign the driver’s paperwork unless you are 100% certain the order is complete, there are no missing items, and it has arrived in perfect condition.
IF YOUR ORDER ARRIVES INCORRECT OR IS MISSING ITMES:
Note exactly what was shipped incorrect or missing on your paperwork. You need to clearly write this on the BOL or Freight Bill. Take a picture of the products received, then contact us and we’ll investigate and get this corrected for you asap!
IF YOUR ORDER ARRIVES DAMAGED:
As upsetting as this may be, it does happen on occasion as careless drivers or warehouse workers may have mishandled your order. In this situation, you have 2 options: If there is significant damage to the order, you can refuse it. Note “ORDER REFUSED DUE TO DAMAGE” on the paperwork, and make sure you take plenty of pictures of the damage. Then send this information to us so we can follow up with the freight company. We can then either refund your order or ship a completely new order to you if the product is still in stock and available. If there’s only slight damage to your order, you can still choose to receive it. But note this damage clearly on the paperwork and take several pictures. Then send this information to us and we will follow up with the freight company. They would then be liable to provide parts to repair or send you some form of compensation.
IF YOU INSPECTED YOUR ORDER, BUT LATER FIND DAMAGE:
This is known as ‘concealed damage’ and freight companies only allow 24 hours to file a concealed damage claim. So, it is very important that if you start unpacking your order and discover damage to a part that wasn’t visible when you removed the packaging for initial inspection, you need to take pictures and contact us immediately. Do not wait. Freight companies will not even consider a concealed damage claim if one is filed more than 24 hours after receipt. Note that concealed damage claims are often denied, which is why your primary inspection as soon as the order arrives is so important.
Shipping can be expensive, especially when shipping from coast to coast to coast, that's why we believe in being fully transparent about how much you're actually paying for shipping.
This is why we ask our customers who are interested in purchasing larger items that they fill out a shipping quote request.
Shipping costs can vary for these larger items and it's not always fair to the consumer to build in "free shipping" costs for these items. This means that you are typically paying more for shipping, and the product, than you should be.
Some shipping definitions that may help you in the process:
- Liftgate Service
This is where the shipping company can lower your items to the ground via a truck "elevator".
- Appointment Delivery
This is where the delivery company will contact you when your order arrives at your closest terminal. They will contact you to arrange a block of time, usually a 4 hour window, to deliver your items within.
- Business Delivery
This is when your order would be shipped to a business that has loading dock, fork lift or appropriate means of off-loading your shipment.
Please note that quote requests normally take 24 hours on average to complete, at which time we will contact you by phone or e-mail. Quotes received over the weekend will be replied to on Monday. Some quotes may take longer to process depending on the delivery location and availability of the shipping companies to provide us with quotes.
