I want to run a small emergency generator on natural gas (NG).
In the past few years, 3 fuel portable generators have become available. But the manuals say not to run them in the rain.
"Whole house" NG generators are built to run in all weather.
So, my question is:. Are there portable NG generators built to run in all weather? If not, what model whole house generator can I run without hooking it up to my electrical panel and,instead, starting it manually when needed. (I would run an extension cord to the few appliances I want to power. That is what I do now with a gasoline generator.)
