Power Kits

Inventory Control Menu -> Power Kits

A Power Kit contains only Non-Bulk Rental items that are always linked to a Primary Non-Bulk Rental product.
For example a Power Kit could include a specific Trailer and Hitch that need to accompany a primary Non-Bulk product such as a Generator.

The Power Kit items or components do not print on the Contract and are not billed and cannot be rented individually.
There is no availability checking for Power Kit components, and these items are not assigned until the contract is created.
i.e. Power Kit components are not reflected on the Counter Worksheet, Reservation or Quotation.

Off rentals are not allowed for Power kit components. The primary unit must be used for off rents. Similarly components can not be deleted from a contract, but when the primary product is deleted, the Power Kit components are automatically deleted too.

Power Kit components cannot be exchanged through Exchange By Contract.
In order to change a component, either the entire Power Kit can be swapped on the Primary unit for another Power Kit in Assign Primary Product #, or individual components can be changed in Power Kit Components.

An audit trail tracking all Power Kit component activity is provided in Power Kit History.

Before creating the Power Kits, enter the types of components to be used in a Power Kit in Power Kit Component Types.
e.g. T - Trailer, M- Motor, H- Hitch, MT- Meter
