Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

First, there is no way to tell how old your unit is. Generac does not track the serial numbers. But your unit is old - it is a Generation 1 unit.

Any Generac "V" or "Y" type transfer switch will work with this genset, which are the most common types of TS out there. Any TS that says RTS will work.

I have uploaded a copy of the Operator Manual for you unit.
