You expecting the big one to hit soon?

I bought one in the late summer right before Sandy hit us.
Out of power for 3 days, I have not used it since.
But I have it if I need it.

I bought one that runs on propane, I start it up once and a while.
One thing good about the propane is that the carb is always clean as a whistle. You never have to worry about gas going bad either. Propane will stay good in the can for many many years.
The 3 days I was without power when Sandy hit I only used 1 20 lb barbecue can. I have 4 total, I might get one more.
I did not run it constantly, just enough to keep the fridge cold and the comfort of some lights and the radio at night.
In the winter I am only worried about heat, I have to tap into my gas heaters fan for the winter. I am going to do it right so all I got to do is flip a switch and plug it in.
No need to Kill anyone trying to restore power outside, you could end up in jail!
You have to watch that you know?

I hate shoveling SNOW!

Lol I hear yah. I have a family electrician installing a 30 amp inlet on the outside of the house and a transfer switch on the inside of the house. This will power pretty much the entire house except the electric dryer. I'm running all 9 watt LED Bulbs in the house

So question on the break in for this thing. The screenshots below are from the owners manual. The first section says that the "Operational Break-in" will last 3 hours of use and to not apply a heavy load. Then the "Maintenance Break-in" will last 20 hours of use and to change the oil after. Then reading into the maintenance section it says for oil changes to perform them at 20 hours, 100 hours, 300 hours. So my question is, do i just put in some standard oil and run it with say my 850 Watt computer plugged in or a space heater for 3 hours, not change the oil, and then after 20 hours of use with a heavy load applied change the oil over to Mobil 1 EP. After that change it every 100 hours? Also for the break in period of 3 hours, can i run it 1 hour on saturday, 1 on on Sunday and so forth until i hit 3 hours of light load?

So no break in period? Also from the documentation what do you read as my hourly oil change period?
