Have an Onan 70amp Automatic Transfer Switch and a 200amp manual transfer switch if you're looking for that as well. If interested send me a PM.

You really want a min. 5000W gas- portable if you want to run a refrig., water pump, water heater, fans, some lights and TV/DVD/computer.
This size can also run a washing machine but not dryer, microwave, blow dryer, electric stove, dishwasher.
You may have to unplug water heater while pump and washing machine in use depending on your size machine so the 7500 may serve you well depending on age and care that has been taken with it.

I have a 5000w that I bought a month after Hugo in 1989 that still runs exceedingly well that I keep as a back up to my large diesel that can run the entire property. A 3500w is too small.
