Been shopping for a generator for a while, this is the best deal I've seen for a 4000/3500 by far. Reviews are generally good. Wheel kit is $39.99

Non CARB compliant so no California availability.

I think that's the wrong wheel kit. This generator doesn't look like it has Wheel mounts so you'd need this kit:

I have the propane version of this one (also on sale):

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Sport.../202222977

It works great for a basic generator. Ran it on propane for my last storm (the variant I had). It's a tad noisy, but for a basic generator it does the trick.

As a note, the propane version has mounting holes in the bottom support braces that go from one side to the other where you can mount wheels that use a single both through the center of the mount. Mine is setup on wheels. Something like this:

Would 100% get this but it says it's not recommended for high altitude which rules us out in CO. Also, I don't understand how the RV plug is 20amps instead of a 30amps... am I missing something?
