Any of you guys use or have used one of these through the wall connections? While I was looking for a cover for my new incoming generator, I ran across this. Looks like it would be much nicer and easier than running cords through a window or door when the power goes out. Just plug it in and you have 6 outlets ready for appliances.
To good to be true??? Worth me getting?? Hmm...What do you guys think?
That's a nice setup. Wal-Mart has them for around $80.00. It's a far cheaper alternative than a full blown transfer switch. While not as convenient, you still get 6 outlets without having to run extension cords through doors and windows in bad weather. Which is what usually knocks out power in the first place.
Our house has a small built in "doggie door" in the kitchen we never use. (Our dog is supervised when he's outside, because of the danger of Coyotes. He's a 16 pound Poodle mix.) I could easily convert it with one of those kits. And I wouldn't have to drill holes in the side of the house.
Thanks for the link @billt. Yes, using that doggie door would be great for you.
I think I will get one and try it.
We have a two car carport right behind our lake house. Was thinking I could run the generator under the carport (to keep it out of weather) and be able to plug it in right in the back wall of the house. It would be really convenient.
Although now thinking of your idea of the doggie door, I will look around the house to see if there are any places that I might be able to install mine without drilling through the house. Now you got me thinking. Yikes! LOL!

Got word from Westinghouse today that my new Westinghouse 9500 was delivered to Lowe's up in Grove. Called Lowe's right after and told them to hold if for me until the 11th. I will be back up there and will post once I pick it up. I'm excited that it is there waiting for me.
You'll be pleased. It's a nice unit.
I ran into town to Lowe's to pick up the new generator. Man I love it. It's electric start with a remote start as well. Put in the oil and gas plugged in the battery and it started right up. I'm running it through a break in period right now.
My plan is to eventually have the transfer switch installed in the lake house. I will be set then.
Looks Good !! Fill it up, and let it run!
