I am looking for a small diesel generator to supplement my off-grid solar setup when needed. I have been using an Onan 5CCK but it often will not start without some TLC and the ignition module went out recently which has me in the mood to try something different. I am looking for something low-rpm that I can automatically start from inside the house. My RV generator has one wire and when you connect it to 12vdc it start and runs until you disconnect the 12vdc. Something like that would be ideal. Diesel would be nice but is not critical and I don't need it to generate tons of power, 2000w 240v would be plenty or I have seen some 28vdc models that would work. There used to be a guy who sold military surplus generators around here (KY) on craigslist but I cannot find him now. If you know of anyone around Kentucky with something that might fit the bill please let me know or if you have any suggestions for a big box store model I would love to hear it.
