Generac Protector Series Cold Weather Kit 3.4L, 48 and 50kW

Recommended for generators installed in regions where the temperature regularly falls below 32F (0 C).  The Cold Weather Kit consist of a block heater with all necessary mounting hardware and a battery warmer with a thermostat built into the battery pad.  When temperatures fall below an acceptable level, the thermostat activates the battery warmer maintaining optimum battery temperature for the best generator starting.  When installing a cold weather kit, it is required that the oil is replaced with 5W-30 synthetic for better engine start capability.

Battery Warmer: Voltage-120, Watts -75, Amps-0.63
Block Heater: Voltage-120, Watts-1500, Amps-12.5

My Mom and Dad are both in their 80's and live in the country. With the installation of the 6551 I can rest assured that they will never be without power, heat, ac and water. this is a great unit and worked perfectly upon startup. Should have installed this a lot sooner for them.

By the way, my son-in-law also has one for his home. I live in a motorhome or I would have one also.
