actually it's very easy. see below:



i used an interlock kit so i could power my entire panel (all 120V circuits, not at the same time obviously), just for convenience sake. here are some steps:

Step 1: Find an interlock kit that's compatible with your panel. Chances are the model in HD/Lowe's will not fit your box without a lot of modification. Here is where I bought mine: http://www.interlockkit.com/

Step 2: Buy generator inlet: http://www.amazon.com/Reliance-Co...ator+inlet

Step 3: Buy L14-30 to L5-30 adapter cable where both hots are crossed so you can power BOTH sides of your panel even though you have a 120V generator: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/...ge_o02_s00 . You could make your own cable for $10, but it's nice to have a factory molded rugged cable that you don't have to worry about. One end of this cable will go into the L14-30 inlet in #2 and the other end gives you a L5-30 connection. See step 4.

Step 4: Buy a 25ft or 50ft L5-30 extension cord (length is up to you). This cord is what will go from your adapter in your inlet in Step 3 to your generator. I bought this: http://www.amazon.com/Conntek-205...+generator . The reason why I am suggesting that you buy the L5-30 cord instead of a regular 5-15 cord + L5-30 to 5-15 adapter, is to future proof your setup should you ever decide to buy a pair of inverter gens that have a parallel kit with a L5-30. Of course if you think you may plan to buy a 240V generator that's more powerful, then you should invest in a L14-30 generator cord which is more typical. You can then add the adapter on the end before it goes into the generator outlet. up to you really and what you think you generator power needs might be in the future. if you don't see yourself doing any of that, you could just use a regular 12ga extension cord and attach the appropriate adapters to go into the inlet.

Step 5: Presuming you went with the L5-30...Buy L5-30 to 5-15 adapter plug which goes into the generator: http://www.amazon.com/Conntek-Loc...30+adapter


NOTE: You will not be able to power any 240V appliances with this generator. For safety reasons, turn OFF any and all 240V circuits

see pics below (note, i have (2) separate electrical boxes each on separate lines with the utility company hence why mine are split like that).

How is this brand/unit compared to the more popular duromax and durostar? Thanks.

120v only so it would be difficult to backfeed into a panel using a lockout kit since you'd only be able to power one of the rails or you'd have to tie them together and shut off all the 240v items before enabling the lockout.

same deal as me buying a non-carb japanese engine for my honda available in the same state of which you mention .

engine will pass smog no problem with flying colors however the jap engine has more power and extra cams and shit .

makes me wonder what carb compliant even means .

WE rape you long time ?

Alright, in for one, hope I made the right decision. I originally bought the dual fuel one on Amazon, but they ended up cancelling it because it was not CARB certified...

Stupid question time. ..... Could you back feed two of these units to a single panel in order to get more juice?

No. The description does not say these generators can be paralleled so the output of two generators can not be combined.
Combining the output of AC generators requires that the phase(s) of the sinusoidal voltage is (are) synchronized. If you combined unsynchronized AC generators "it would be bad."

someone makes small units that can be sync'd for that purpose (Honda I think) but I have not seen any of the low end gennys with that capabilty.
