My generator will not be used and will remain in the garage until after the storm passes...at which point it will go into a garden shed in my back yard. The generator has a 50 foot, 10 gauge, 4 prong, NEMA rated extension, and is plugged into receptacle mounted to the back of my house. The receptacle is wired with 8 gauge to the 6 circuit transfer switch. The transfer switch is mounted in my garage next to the circuit breaker panel. All 6 circuits are 120.

I have read that in order to keep the fridge cool, one only needs to power up the fridge for an hour at different time intervals. I'm just curious if anyone knows what intervals work the best. Every 4 Hours. 6, 8 ?

It's a really nice generator - a Westinghouse WGen9500. Runs on gasoline or propane. 7500 running watts. Has a remote! I can start the generator from inside the house. I will only use gasoline as a last resort.
