If my generator has two 120v outputs and one 240v output, do I connect all 3 outputs to the transfer switch or just the 240v?

Also, will the transfer switch stabilize the power in any way to protect TV's and computers?

Ok, this is a good question. I will need to answer in two parts:
1. You generator transfer switch kit should have come with a generator plug cable that looks like the one I have selected to show you in this reply. It plugs into your generator and then to your power inlet box. That should be all you need to do to get power from your generator to your manual transfer box. You dont need to do anything else

It plugs into your generator and then to your power inlet box. That should be all you need to do to get power from your generator to your manual transfer box. You dont need to do anything else with the 120V plugs unless you want to use them for powering something directly from the generator.
2. The generator will not "stabilize" any power for your electronics. You will need a power conditioner for that. However, most surges can be take care of with a simple surge protector.

Answer: 
As others have stated, you would only use the 240V outlet on the generator.
The generator, and not the transfer switch, is responsible for delivering clean power. If you are going to be running TVs and computers, you may want to consider an inverter generator. They cost more for the same size generator, but they have less problems with load changes, and tend to be more economical to run. They do not Read More

Answer: 
You just connect the 240V output. It contains two 120V circuits which can then supply 120V and 240V breakers.
The transfer does not stabilize the current at all you will get the same spikes that you get today.

Answer: 
The generator accepts one 240v "line-in" from the generator. The "quality" of the power for purposes of sensitive electronics (ie. televisions, computers, etc...) is a function of the generator, not the Generac kit. Check with the manufacturer of your generator for use with sensitive electronics.

The maintenance kit, model 5664, is compatible with our units that utilize a 760cc or 990cc engine. The generator model 0054160 is an 18kW unit with a 990cc engine, so the maintenance kit will be compatible with this unit.

This generator is not fully compatible with the transfer switch. The problem is that it has only a single 120v outlet, and not 240v outlet.

This transfer switch would be overkill for use with that generator. It would also Read More

Answer: 
The box that they are talking about is the power inlet box. This is where the generator plugs into the transfer switch. The box has a 4 prong 240V plug. This is a universal 240V plug that comes standard on most modern generators.

Answer: 
The box is the outdoor power connect for the generator. It uses a standard plug. The transfer switch will work with any generator that has a 30A 240V outlet on it. It is possible to use it with other generators, but that might require some rewiring.

Answer: 
The box is the remote inlet for connecting up a portable generator. It is rated to be out in the weather, while the transfer switch is not. This lets you have the generator in a safe location outside the house. For a fixed backup generator, you would not need the inlet or cord supplied with this kit.

Answer: 
the kit includes a small gray box which contains the standard socket for the cable from the generator.
You mount the box outside near the generator and plug the supplied cable into that box and the generator. It is a standard type of cable and Genrrac is not the only generator that uses that type. It is a 240 Volt socket

Answer: 
I am not sure what you mean by interchangeable breaker, but the set up is simple. Essentially you will be replacing your circuits with the circuits that come with the transfer switch. When setup correctly, you can easily switch from power company power to generator power.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Installation and function of the product was a good experience. The pre-wired switch made for a simple installation. (Be sure to turn off the main power before connecting any circuits) The switch works as designed except for the 2 amp meter indicators that don't seem to show any read-out in my case but I doesn't interfere with basic use of the product. The switch does transfer current very nicely to the user-selected house circuits using my gas generator for running the freezer, refrigerator, furnace, microwave, garage door opener, water heater, & bathroom outlets. I would feel awfully dumb if I had a generator and couldn't use it to run these essential appliances when the neighborhood electrical power was out for a few days. November 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product Assembly worked worked well. The wiring leads and space made it to add. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No fuss no muss The only way to go for a safe and efficient use of a back o generator. Everything that was needed for the installation was included (except for the 60 amp breaker). This installation is not for a rookie DYI, but for a seasoned veteran it shouldn't be a problem. Better yet call a pro to have it installed. July 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works like a dream on first use A good fit for my home with just over 2000 square feet. The switch will handle about half of my house in a power outage. I did have my handyman install it, given the limited electrical expertise available in my family. August 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by As advertised Easy to follow directions, if you can change a light fixture you can install one of these in about 2-3 hours. Don’t forget to buy 10 gauge 4 wire, you will need it to run from the transfer switch to the outside box. Free fast shipping. October 24, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by a good all-round kit If you are looking for a clean solution for adding a portable generator to your house wiring this will do it for you and can easily be installed by a competent DIY homeowner. The box acts as a 'sub panel' through which a set of house circuits will always flow. It includes two mechanically connected breakers that switch the power source to be either from your house main panel through a 60A breaker, or from the generator through a 30A breaker. (See picture.) This means you have to decide when you install this, which 6 circuits you will be able to power from your generator. The kit is very complete, the installation is straightforward and easy. It even includes the wire nuts needed to connect the wires together. What it does not include is the 60A breaker that is needed in your house load center, and this is not included because you need to have the one that matches your existing distribution panel so that makes perfect sense. Also included is a good heavy cable to go from the generator to the supplied external wall socket. You need to supply the 10/3 cable from the external socket to the transfer switch. In other words, everything that could be supplied is in the box. Instructions are clear and includes a template for mounting the box next to your distribution panel. The wires from the transfer switch to the load center are all labeled and color coded (look for the matching code such as 'B4' on the wire which corresponds to the 'B1' breaker). If one is looking for more flexibility one could also consider an interlock kit that attaches to your load center and feeding the generator power back through a 30A breaker. That approach allows you to select any circuits to be powered as needed instead of the 6 you selected at install time, (so long as their combined power demand is less than the generator capacity). October 30, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 30 amp generac transfer switch It came with a defective 10' electric cord. A new cord is being delivered to me in 5 to 10 days. November 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Idea of product is ok but not as user friendly as they profess it to be. The flexible conduit length is a joke its so short, and doesn't come even with a second end to hook into your house panel. The breaker selection should be able to be made prior to ordering otherwise when you get it like i did you find you have to go but the appropriate ones anyway, thus saving nothing but buying this "kit". Save yourself money and hassle and just go but a transfer panel and the breakers and wire yourself, you will save money compared to this kit. May 26, 2014
