When Herk mentioned "MAKE SURE you get the correct polarity! Bonding the hot to ground would be very bad for your inverter generator," and Mike mentioned miswiring the aftermarket kit may switch Hot and Neutral, I figured the idea of doing any kind of ground-to-whatever may produce an unexpected short.

Let us know if checking the wires (phase connections) on the Generac resolves your issue.

It's probably not miswired as I can bypass the PI and everything works fine.

I thought everything works fine is why potentially dangerous reverse polarity (E1) is such a tranparent condition.

I used one of those tester plugs before I plugged my neutral-ground adapter plug into a generator socket. Also tested my generator's 30 amp outlet with a 30-to-15amp-prong-converter before I plugged in my RV.

Yeah, I know, no guts no glory, what a sissy.

But that's the nice thing about electricity- if the magic smoke doesn't come out of all your equipment right away you are probably good!
