Thanks for reading this. I'm hoping to get some advise about the
wiring from my generator to my transfer switch - only partially done
by my electrician a few years ago as I had not purchased a generator
when he did the work.
My house is 100amps and he installed a transfer switch shown here
which is a throw switch.
He then left me with a 20 foot black cord with the writing
P-136-29-MSMA 12 AWG 4/G. On the invoice he describes this as 12/4 SJ
Attached to this wire is a Nema L14-20 Levitron plug - same as the
short run going to the transfer switch of which it connects to. On
the invoice he describes these as 125/125 volt cord caps (one male and
one female) (one end was left empty until I purchased a generator)
I ultimately purchased a honda generator EU6500. It calls for a cord
cap with the specs L14-30P.
1. Can the required L14-30P cap work well attached to the wire and
caps he left me as they do not sound like they match up?
2. Do I need to change the two other caps to 30 amps?
3. Is the wiring he gave me adequate for the 6500 generator and
should I change that too?
I hope I was able to describe this well. Many thanks for your time!!
