The RXT-JFNC-200A is not service entrance rated.
The RXT-JFNC-0200ASE TRANSFER SWITCH IS SERVICE ENTRANCE RATED!
The difference: power comes into the transfer switch by way of utility or generator then it goes to
the whole house circuit panel which has a 200a main circuit breaker. Lets make a short circuit
on the entrance cable using utility power. The entrance cable comes out of the transfer switch and is feeding a short circuit before the main panel, the utility power is capable of 1000+ amps there is a circuit breaker in the 200ASE SWITCH THAT WILL DISCONNECT THE UTILITY WHILE THE 200A SWITCH IS TOAST!
The 200A circuit breaker in the main panel never saw the short circuit because it happened before it got to the panel breaker.

Answer: 
Hey alfie,
Amps is wattage divided by voltage and to get wattage is amps x Volts.
Of course, there is more things to know even after getting voltage and wattage, like knowing how many circuits you'll need to safely power up everything.
Hope this helps you out,

Answer: 
Hi Alfie,
The way to determine your wattage needs is to determine what appliances, lights, tv's etc. you want to run when the generator is in operation.
Each device has a power requirement. For example a lamp with a 100 watt bulb will requires 100 watts to operate.
To determine the wattage needs of any electrical device, multiply the volts required times the amps required to get the number of watts Read More
Hi Alfie,
The way to determine your wattage needs is to determine what appliances, lights, tv's etc. you want to run when the generator is in operation.
Each device has a power requirement. For example a lamp with a 100 watt bulb will requires 100 watts to operate.
To determine the wattage needs of any electrical device, multiply the volts required times the amps required to get the number of watts required.
For example an electric drill with a 5 amp motor running on standard 120 volt circuit will require
600 watts. 5 x 120 = 600
Some appliances are rated in wattage such as microwaves. A 1,000 watt microwave will require 1,000 watts to operate.
The Kohler web site offers a chart showing the wattage requirements for common household appliances and tools.

Does this Kohler Generator run on Natural Gas?

This question is from 14,000-Watt Air Cooled Standby Generator with 200-Amp Whole House Automatic Transfer Switch
Asked by

Syracuse NY
September 10, 2012
I went to the Kohler web page and it says "This v-twin cylinder, air-cooled, horizontal-shaft engine is built to last. OHV, cast iron cylinder liners, and aluminum block construction make the 4-cycle, gasoline-powered Command PRO® ready for the long haul." I read the specs completley several times and the words Natural Gas is never mentioned. I can't believe that this engine doesn't run on Natural Gas. Since it says in your write up it is non returnable I don't want to purchase it and find out it doesn't run on Natural Gas.

Answer: 
I would say not as the transfer switch is to prevent back feeding power to the main grid. As you have no grid to backfeed you would not need the switch. I am not an electrician ( that was my fathers trade) but I do know something about gen set's.
If you have an electrical inspector in your area he could give you A diffinative answer.
