So with this the prep is say $600 to $800 and the Gren around $5000 for a total under 6k. Could you send me the location and dealer name. BTW thankyou. We have been looking at building a 2017 due to the options we want. But this is helping to make it look good to pick up this 2015.
I think what he was trying to say is he paid $600 over and above the normal install cost because it didn't have the prep.
PS - the prep does not get you the exaust or LP gas supply, only the heat shield, pre-wired transfer switch, and the remote start/hour meter. When you install with
the prep you have to:
- knock out the plates in the bottom of the cabinet for the Onan ventilation system
- Route power (2 circuits) from the generator to the transfer switch above the heat shield
- Route starting cables to the batteries
- Plug in the remote start harness
- Install a "t" and route propane to the generator
- Install new exhaust and hangers.
the generator prep, you would also have to:
- Install the heat shield
- Install a 50A transfer switch on the bulkhead
- Intercept the shore line power going to the breaker panel and route it to the transfer switch instead (not fun)
- Run power (2 circuits) from the transfer switch back to the breaker panel (also not fun)
- Install a remote start switch and hour meter near the control center and run wiring harness back to the front compartment via the ceiling over the basement.
