    I have a troy-bilt 7550 running watts and 13500 starting. I wanted to put the following transfer switch with this unit but was concerned if it would work due to the information noted below. Specifically, it says "Compatible with 120/240 Volt, 30 amp generator output, typically 7,500 watt generator". Will the transfer switch safely work with this generator or should I seek a higher rated transfer switch. Thanks.

    Compatible with 120/240 Volt, 30 amp generator output, typically 7,500 watt generators. Kit includes the transfer switch, a 30 amp, 20 foot power cord set, an optional 20 amp male cord cap end and a Flush Mount Kit. Instructional Installation videotape included!

    Ditto; good match. Starting watts isn't sustained long enough to worry about.
