Don't know with 3 different manufactures of MH never had any issues with transferring from or to shore power and never had to disconnect anything to do so. But as everything else we have found on these forums if you are comfortable doing something a certain way continue to do it that way right or wrong doubt you will hurt anything.

I'm surprised the gen set manual doesn't recommend a warm up before putting a load on it and a cool down before shutting it down with no or very little load for several minutes. I know my boat generator manual suggested both. I'll check the manual sometime today.

Hmm, 2 minute warm up and 2 minute cool down pages 9 and 10 of the Onan generator manual. About half of what they recommend for a heat exchanger cooled by seawater.
