Re: generator cord for electric stove

I bought that Generac propane generator a few days after the storm hit. Living in North Jersey, gasoline was tough to get, but propane was easy for us. The local Home Depot and Sears Hardware had the tank exchanges available every time we went. Plus the local garden center was able to refill the tanks with no issue. I guess it depends on where you,live.

As for the generator, I had it wired in through a transfer switch. We have oil heat, a gas hot water heater and stove, and a gas dryer. So the generator was able to keep us reasonably powered up. We just didn't turn everything on at once, and my wife and daughter had to do without their hair dryers.

The big plus side for me with the propane generator is that there is no refills with a gas can. It is as easy as replacing the gas tank on the grill.
