I Need to Autostart a Generac 7.5kw Model 69981
My son has recently bought a remote homestead which has a modest but quite adequate solar and wind power system - there is no grid for miles. Water needs are powered by a brand new Generac 7.5kw Model 69981. It has the autostart panel wired in, but it must be manually started. It all works, but it is inconvenient. The Generac restores water pressure and provides some boost to the battery pack charge.
It occurs to me that the autostart function should be able to be initiated by the pressure switch when the water tank calls for water.
I read of 2 wire start conversions, but find little more than references - few details.
I look forward to learning about this, as I am not only assisting my son, but am pondering going off grid myself.
Just as an aside, while I like the Generac product, I am finding Generac customer support to be quite short on support.
I am not new to Standby generators, In my retirement I have a Cummins (LPGas)/Onan system on my remote farm-ette.
In short, the question at hand - How to add 2 wire autostart to a nearly brand new - less than a year old - Generac 7.5kw.
