    Connected my MEP-803A the proper way as my home standby generator... Install pics...

    I have never had one walk around on a concrete pad but I used a stall mat from the local farm supply to make isolation pads to go under the skids I also used pieces between the skid and lift rings to remove the vibration rattle noise from them.

    MEP 803a Pulse solar charger / dead batteries

    Get a 24v to 36v 100 watt solar panel and charge controller and mount it next to your unit and use it to charge the batteries. You can still use the exiting charger for desulfating. You may also want to check the diode on your alternator. Take your batteries in for a test or buy a tester. I...

    MEP 803a Pulse solar charger / dead batteries

    They are really just desulfators. They only supply a few watts of power. I put a dual 10 amp battery charger in all the units I sold.

    Ideas to quite down an mep 005

    In old days they hung tapestries in churches and castles to reduce sound reflections in a room. I have seen large moving blankets on walls and wool used the same way. Now you can buy modern scientifically designed sound panels that are designed by a team of engineers. I am an engineer, just...

    Ideas to quite down an mep 005

    Since you have a hotel you probably have a lot of bad towels / linens. They make great sound absorbers for your generator room or any noisy place. You can use fire retardant materials to cover the frame also! See video.

    Ideas to quite down an mep 005

    What about duplicating the ASK kit. Shouldn't be that hard to do if someone has some specs for one.

    MEP-803a Painting Project

    I may have a couple gallon cans of the poly based CARC left in green. I know I have brown, black, and grey primer. It takes a gallon to put a light coat on an 803. I prefer a nice enamel paint instead with a slight sheen. Everything looks better with a little shine lol. Any bare spots use...

    MEP-802A electrical output hookup

    I am stripping what is left of my 500mcm and 1000mcm cable to save for when copper goes up in price. I used 300 feet to connect a 400kva gen set to the distillery next door. Used my pickup to pull the cable thru the conduit! It was fun laying out the cable by myself to get ready for the...

    MEP-803A no AC output

    Has he removed the front cover and looked at the tank / fuel pump? If the unit is working until prime is lost then there has to be a leak. Does the aux fuel system work?

    Ultimate well nut repair

    I install bulkheads every day in rain barrels for my wife's store. We buy them by the hundreds. Same technique. Concrete wire with a loop on the bottom to prevent the bulkhead from coming off the wire. Use Permatex 80631 thread sealant with PTFE on your fuel tank bulkheads since it is fuel...

    MEP-802/803 fuel return improvements

    Never had an issue with aluminum alloy rivnuts. Aluminum is best to prevent galvanic corrosion. Use aluminum alloy bolts or high quality zinc plated steel to reduce galvanic corrosion. I get mine from a NASCAR supplier in Charlotte NC. I have installed over a thousand in MEP-80X generators...

    The kloppk WiFi Module Thread 802A/803A

    I just hard wire in a pulsetec dual charger and keep it hooked up all the time. It works better than just solar as it will top off the batteries if needed and does constant conditioning 24 hrs a day unlike solar. I just mount it in the accessory box.

    My old auto parts store warranty was 5 years, 5,000 miles, or 500 feet. Which ever one comes first. Just about as good :)
