Answer: 
The L14-30P and the L14-30R on the other end are both locking devices. The connectors are unique to its phase, voltage, and current rating. The prefix "L" designates it is a locking device, not twist lock. But it is accomplished by that motion). The suffix of "P" or "R" designates plug or receptacle. The 30 indicates the amp rating. The 14 is the designation for 4 wire 125/250 volt connection. This Read More

The 14 is the designation for 4 wire 125/250 volt connection. This requires 2 ungrounded (have over current protection) conductors, 1 grounded (neutral) conductor and 1 equipment grounding conductor. All different amperage/voltage/1,2,or 3 phase, delta or wye power arrangements have a different designation for its connector. Many are available also without the locking designation, such as an electric dryer is a 14-30P and matching 14-30R in the wall. Any connector above 50 amps will be a pin and sleeve device. Read Less

Answer: 
I purchased this cord for my generator in order to connect it to my outdoor Reliance L14-30 power input box which ties into my power transfer switch panel and it has worked fine for me. The cord has four 10 gauge conductors and is rated at 125/250 Volts 30 Amps = 7,500 watts as the Ridgid rep correctly stated. It has a NEMA L14-30P 4-prong male plug on one end and a corresponding NEMA L14-30R 4-slot Read More
I purchased this cord for my generator in order to connect it to my outdoor Reliance L14-30 power input box which ties into my power transfer switch panel and it has worked fine for me. The cord has four 10 gauge conductors and is rated at 125/250 Volts 30 Amps = 7,500 watts as the Ridgid rep correctly stated. It has a NEMA L14-30P 4-prong male plug on one end and a corresponding NEMA L14-30R 4-slot female receptacle on the other end. I'm responding because I am a bit confused with the response of the Ridgid rep which indicated that only one end is a Twist-Lock so I thought I might be able to help clarify the specs for the connectors at the two ends. Let me put it this way, you can plug one end of the cord into the other end of the cord so it seems to me that would mean that both ends would have to be Twist-Lock would they not??? This cord does NOT have receptacles for plugging in conventional 120 Volt 3-prong devices in case that is what the original question was about. BTW, I'm very pleased with the quality of this Ridgid cord and the built in power-on light on the receptacle end is a great feature. Plus, the price is the best I've seen anywhere. Read Less

Technically all extension cords are for "indoor use". As long as you are using the code required "in-use" covers on your outlets(inlets) there is no need for concern.

Answer: 
Number 10 conductors are normally rated for 30 amps, depending on the insulation type, ambient temperature, the length of the wire run, the number of wires in the conduit or cable and the type of load encountered. That is why electricians are often a few dollars well spent to ensure it is done correctly, and safe for the conditions encountered.

Answer: 
That depends. If it will use 120v for anything it needs a neutral. If not then using this particular cord type you would use the red and black and green. White or grey is set aside for neutral. Green or green/yellow is set aside for ground. All other conductors are considered ungrounded conductors and somewhere upstream will have overcurrent protection. It is though common practice on a 220(230,240,250) Read More

Green or green/yellow is set aside for ground. All other conductors are considered ungrounded conductors and somewhere upstream will have overcurrent protection. It is though common practice on a 220(230,240,250) portable cord to repurpose the white wire as a hot conductor. Technically it should be taped or colored differently, but as it goes into a cord cap and is rarely ever disturbed most electricians will terminate the conductors properly inside the proper connector and call it good. Also 220v stem from when power was 110v, 230v from 115v, 240v from 120v, and where we are now is becoming commonly 250v from 125v.
PS. residential should not connect this wire directly inside the panel. There should be a permanently wired female connector in a properly mounted box attached to the panel to be legal. If not following the code and doing it illegally, at least use a quality cord grip with a rubber compression interior to securely mount the cable to the cabinet. . But in residential permanently connected portable cord is not an approved wiring method.

Answer: 
its a 220 -240 volt cord. Red & Black carry 110 -120 v on each leg. White is Neutral and green is ground. If you measure the voltage of each color with the white you only get 110v. measure the red & black and you get 220. Suggest you get help wiring it.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by generator cord I can't give a 5-star review because I have not used the cord yet. It looks well made and it was delivered promptly. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great cord Perfect in every way for my newly installed tri-fuel 7000/9000 watt Champion generator. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks good - great price - online specs wrong its a outdoor rated cord. Purchased a 7500 watt generator and setting up home with a outside power inlet box routing back to main panel using the generator panel interlock system. Read the other review where the online specs clearly indicate this is for indoor use. Even when I looked at it in the store the box says 'A cord set not marked for outdoor use is to be used indoors only. See label for outdoor marking" How confusing can this get. You have to take the cord out of the box to look at the label that is attached to the cord itself and yes this is a outdoor rated cord. Why else would it come with "Outlets are weather-guard protected when not being used". Home Depot has to clean up this description / Spec sheet. Picture of tag attached. December 17, 2013
