Being in stock is the slick part here. Not on sale but well priced for the capability.…ts_product
Similarly spec’d generators from competitors are scarce.
shipping is $10 with standard membership, free with premium. Shipping time for me was 7-10 days.
Wgen5300DFv is the smallest least expensive dual fuel generator that will drive a well pump, electric water heater and built-in major appliances. Equipped with both RV and L14 30R outlets i.e. "transfer switch ready" means that it can easily be wired to energize both sides of the mains panel.
Dual Fuel, RV/Transfer Switch Ready with 120/240V Voltage Selector
Easily Powers Sump Pumps, AC, Refrigerators, Well Pumps and More
Comes with mobility kit, wheels, tow handle, LP hose and regulator, oil, funnel, tool kit.
Run time 50% load: 13.5 hours gas and 9 hours on 20# LP cylinder.
Output on LP propane is about 10% but at 4800 watts still enough for most water heaters.
Running Amps
22A @ 240V 44A @120V
Running Amps (Propane)
20A @ 240V 40A @ 120V
VFT displays voltage output, frequency, and lifetime hours.
The next most popular model is the Wgen7500DF which offers remote electric start, auto-start on mains power failure ( ST accessory required ) in addition more power. But it is twice the cost.
Those who do -not- need 240 volt operation or the raw power may be better off with an inverter generator with low THD. Other options are to connect a smart charger + battery bank and battery driven stand alone inverter for sensitive loads or to plug your sensitive devices in to a power conditioner.
Finally, traditional generators with brush-less copper-wound alternators which produce clean power and are commercial duty are available at a higher price such as from Winco and Lifan.
