Remote Control?

Does this system come with a remote control because I have seen similar Generac models of the same power that do! If not can one be added to it? And or bought to run this in particular generator with a remote from the inside our house?

The Generac GP6500E does not include a remote control. A remote control could not be added to this generator. Currently, Northern Tool does not offer a portable generator with a remote control. We offer automatic standby generators that will turn on automatically if the power goes out.

Please know that none of our portable generators can be started remotely, as they need to be started manually via the unit's recoil, or via the electric start button featured on models bestowing a battery.

Staff Answer
Because there is no industry standard for testing sound levels on portable generators, Generac does not list a decibel rating. The GP6500 portable generator does not have GFCI protection on the control panel or receptacles. New appliances or sensitive electronics with electronic control boards, such new power tools, refrigerators, furnaces, and computers, can require total harmonic distortion to be below 5%; the total harmonic distortion for the GP Series portable units will be above 5%.

Because there is no industry standard for testing sound levels on portable generators, we do not currently list a decibel rating for any of our portable generators.
The GP6500 portable generator does not have GFCI protection on the control panel or receptacles. We do not recommend adding GFCI protection to the control panel as any modifications to the unit will void the factory warranty. GFCI protection is not required for this unit when utilized for home backup or for recreational activities; however, if you are connecting this generator to a manual transfer switch, your local codes may require that the circuit breakers in your manual transfer switch be GFCI or Arc Fault breakers. We recommend to contact your local inspector to ensure compliance with all state and local codes.
New appliances or sensitive electronics with electronic control boards, such new power tools, refrigerators, furnaces, and computers, can require total harmonic distortion to be below 5%; the total harmonic distortion for the GP Series portable units will be above 5%. If you are unsure as to whether or not the items you intend to run are sensitive items, we recommend contacting the manufacturer to determine any specifications or restrictions for use with a portable generator. If you are looking for a unit with a cleaner power output, we would recommend considering either our XP Series gasoline powered units or our Guardian series automatic home standby generators.

The GP 5941 generator has THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) greater than 6% and is not recommended for sensitive electronics, such as a flat screen TV or computer. Please see my recommendations below for comparable Generac generator with less than 5% THD.
