While visiting my folks in St. Louis ...
Seems St. Louis has had some power outages, seem to get worse every winter. Low and behold, there is somebody pushing 'whole house generators' for $5K installed ... or so I've heard.
People I've spoket to were not told of the other equipment needed, noise anf fuel issues, maintenance required, etc.
Now, can anyone name a 'cheap' generator, marketed to homowners, with a rotten track record for reliability, and that uses lots of proprietary parts?
