Just a word of caution here…When using a generator to hook up to your house…depending on where you live, some municipalities consider the use of an interlocking switch as illegal, such as in Los Angeles! In those cases, a transfer power switch has to be used. In my case, I thoroughly researched this with the city of Los Angeles.
@jtdavis good advice man! I’m gonna look into what the laws are out here in Michigan.
