is there a code that states how close to an oil fill pipe the plug can be installed to.

This is a question that is best answered by your local building authorities. Codes will vary from state to state and municipality to municipality.

Can you lock this box?

Asked by jconn161 July 28, 2020

No. There is a spring loaded cover over the inlet that keeps it covered when not in use but there is no provision for locking it.

It's a PVC-like material. Any "fusion" type of spray paint intended for lawn furniture and such would work.

Is it safe to use in the rain?

Answers

Yes - It is rated to be water tight. Make sure you use the appropriate conduit attachment with a rubber gasket. You can also seal the attachment with an additional bead of silicon sealer. I also ran a bead of silicon across the top of the panel where it met the wall to keep water from entering from the backside (my wall has no overhang). I also sealed the attachment screw holes inside the box with silicon.

Yes, it is a "twist" lock style connector. You can position the connector by rotating it so that the "keyed" blade is in a more desirable position when you remove the connector for wiring.

Yes, it came with a male 4 prong, 30 amp connector.

can this be used with a generator that is 9200 run and 11000 start .

Answers

No the PBN30 is designed for generators around 5500 running watts, you would need to step up to the PBN50 for your size generator.

how do you wire it

Asked by pete November 17, 2016

Answer

This is a 120/240 volt device so there are four wires: two hots, a neutral, and a ground. The wires come in to the inlet box through one of the knockouts in the side or back of the box and then are easily connected to the terminals on the power inlet. The bottom of the inlet box slides out for easy access to all four terminals.

Product was all I hoped for. Using my hammer-drill, I easily attached the box to the cinder-block wall of my garage. Ran flexible conduit to box (popped out opening for attachment), and threaded 10 amp stranded wire (4 wire) to the box. I removed the plug to make wiring it more easy and then re-installed once wires were attached. Will use unit to connect my 7500W generator to my circuit breaker box in the garage. (Yes, I am using a interlock breaker set up to disconnect main power feed when using the generator).

Excellent: Updated back Punch-out Design. This non-metallic box is solid. The punch-out design has been updated since a 2016 reviewer pointing out a design flaw with “the rear punch-out hole to run the wire thru is immediately behind the outlet plug” This has been corrected as of 2018. The box I received from HD has the Rear punch-out now located in back upper left corner which makes cables entering from the back much easier to wire to the plug. The top cover is angled so it does not collect water. Having the plug on the bottom keeps water and snow away from the Plug connector area.

exactly what I needed
One design flaw is the rear punch-out hole to run the wire thru is immediately behind the outlet plug inside the box. If it was raised about two inches, the incoming wire would clear the plug assembly making routing of the wires easier. I removed the plug assembly completely from the box to wire it (one has to in order to tighten the screw terminal on one, and maybe two of the connections). After connecting the and bending wires some to fit in the box, I re-installed the plug / cover piece. I then attached this to the side of the house, then installed the cover. I was a little concerned about breaking the plastic, as it deformed quite a bit as i was trying to push the wiring into place. Nothing broke, and everything fit into place when the cover was re-installed.
