Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by amateurlandscaper DOES NOT ACCEPT ALUMINUM WIRE
After I ran my wire all the way across my basement into the garage, I prepared to install this plug and discovered that it only accepts copper wire. For a 30A 220V circuit, aluminum wire is far more common than copper (just check Home Depot's wire selection), and honestly it never even occurred to me that the plug might not be aluminum-rated. This little bit of info should definitely be made more clear in the product description!
This plug is useless to me, unless I want to pull out $100 worth of aluminum wire and replace it with even more expensive copper.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stan A good inlet for a power generator
The power inlet was easy to assemble. I used # 10 wire to connect up to a double pull 30 amp breaker. It's better to use thinner wire such as #12 to make it easier to make all the connections. This box can adequately hold a connecting 30 amp 10/4 power cord in place. A better method would be to use a twist lock adapter to ensure the power cord stays well connected to inlet box.

Bought this to complete my home generator setup. Mounted easily to outside wall to run cable to breaker panel in basement. Quality construction. A little pricey but it's hard to fine a NEMA male twist-lock plug and box for DIY'rs. Best value was Home Depot. Worth the price to do the job the right way. Purchased online from Home Depot, fast delivery. Very satisfied with product and service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkusX Great Generator Power Inlet Box for a Mobile Home
It was a bit daunting for a basic DIY guy like me, but I got everything I needed to connect my emergency power generator to my load center (aka fuse box), and this Power Inlet Box from Reliance Controls is the centerpiece.
It is super solid and high quality, and pretty much immune to rain when closed. I recommend using it with a matching twist-lock L14-30 connector also from Reliance Controls for maximum electrical contact.
( Model # L1430C Internet # 202216503 )
I used 6 gauge wire (I like to over-spec) which was a struggle to rout neatly in the box but the connections are rock-solid.
Remember if you are going to connect a generator to your load center you also need a Generator Interlock to be safe and legal. This makes sure you cannot switch on both the generator and the grid feed at the same time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy nice power inlet box
Nice compact box. Weatherproof and easy to install. Took a gamble because I did not see a knockout on the back until it arrived. Glad it has this feature. Installed and ready for use!
