We installed the TLG-500 over the weekend at our cottage in the
Haliburton Highlands county of Southern Ontario - I used a 35'
TV tower and a ten foot length of 1-7/8" inch OD. pipe, and
she just flies! At 45' the TLG-500 is about 10' below the tree
line, so in all likelihood I will raise the generator another
20', once the neighborhood gets acclimatized to my shiny new
I ran 3 #8 and a ground 50' from the generator towards
the component backboard, and that's as far as I got. I would
like to buy a diode and some other gear once I get my batteries
and inverters, but right now I don't know what I need. I have an
MPPT 60 to handle the solar panels I have yet to buy, but will
probably hook up the TLG-500 for now.
Thanks for a great product,
