Ordered my 3100 W from Overstock.com yesterday, 10% discount, free shipping and no sales tax, should be here by 8/21.
OK, next idea. I have a 25' cable with 30amp RV connectors on both ends. I want to use the male end to plug into the generator and the female end will get changed to a 50amp twist/lock female to fit my fiver power receptacle.
I'm not electrically challenged but want to make sure I get the 50 amp female wired correctly. I haven't cut the 30 amp cable yet but pretty sure it's 3 wire: hot, neutral and ground.
Hot lead will connect to both hot lugs in the 50 amp receptacle, neutral to neutral and ground to ground?
I realize I could just use a 50 to 30 adapter but since I have all these parts on hand would rather make a generator cable. Hope to haul the genset in the TV bed and just pull out the cable, plug up the fiver and have power.
I have been accused of making simple things overly complex.....
