ER Lariat owner here in Sarasota, FL. Looks like we have at least a Cat 3 heading our way. Sending the wife and my daughters away and I’m going to hunker down.

I have the Ford Pro Charge Station and 4kw inverter from SunRun in boxes in the garage. Installation by Mister Sparky Electric set for Monday.

Assuming the box instructions are sufficient but I would welcome any tips and tricks from owners who have successfully got the power backup system working!

There are a few threads on here that discuss issues folks have had getting the FCSP up and running.
Thanks, I’ve see a few on the FCSP but very little on successful startup of the Intelligent Backup system.
Gave up on intelligent backup and had electricians install inlet and dedicated sub panel to use pro power onboard.

VERY judicious use (fridge, occasional light, WiFi modem etc) is burning about 1.5 miles per hour.
Lost power at 1 pm yesterday, range has dropped from 286 to 230. Going to start pulsing on and off in 4 hour increments to conserve energy but keep fridge at temp.

Glad to hear you made it thru. Did you suffer any damage or flooding?
No flooding, we are a few miles inland, so thankful there. Bunch of downed trees, one punched through the lanai and a few roofing tiles on the ground. We got very lucky the storm tracked to the South (although at the expense of the people in Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Sanibel).
