Rated 5 out of 5Â by DrTom Tricky to install but works great, good value
The product comes well packaged including 2 AAA batteries for the remote display unit. The monitoring unit installs on the back of the generator enclosure and plugs into the internal electronics in series with the existing LED status display (the red/yellow/green on the right side of the enclosure). You need a small Phillips screwdriver but not much else for tools.
The challenging part is getting the two TINY metric machine screws installed. I dropped one of them inside the enclosure and I'm sure I'll never see it again. The parts list does show the size and I was able to find some spares at my local True Value hardware store (but not at Home Depot). 3mm x 12 is really small and it's really easy to lose one or both while you are trying to feed them into the tiny holes on the sender's cover. I'm surprised Generac didn't include extras in the package. For now I've got just one in place, when it warms up in the spring I will install the second (bottom) screw, and probably also run a bead of silicone seal around the unit. Other than the challenge of seating the tiny screws, it was a very easy install and setup (the transmitter and receiver are paired at the factory, so if all goes well, once you have power to the sender and put in the batteries in the remote display, it just starts doing its thing).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sammie This product is a life saver in the middle of a storm.
I am confined to a wheelchair and I cannot get outside to check on our generator and I don't want my Wife to go out either. So this is the best answer for us.

The product came very well packaged with detailed instructions for installation. Everything was provided except a few simple tools everyone should have. The installation can be accomplished by anyone with average skills and ability to follow instructions. Working inside of the generator housing was a bit confining and somewhat tedious, but patience pays off. After installation, the wireless took a couple of tries to synch up, but it works well and I no longer have to go outside to check my generator status.
