Questions & Answers

What type of connection / plug is used at the generator to feed a 230 volt load?

Asked by: ELM
the best way to obtain a correct ( plug ) is to do it at the time of a generator purchase. TRY it, before you buy it. should you HAVE a generator without a manual, look at the design of the connection at the generator output panel. MAKE a sketch, look close, record details, go to local HD store, ask for help, buy one. DO NOT discard your receipt .ELECTRICAL devices can NOT be returned if they are USED.

Will this work on a 3500 watt generator

Asked by: Lonepine35
This inlet box can handle 3600 watts on each leg (# 10 wire required ) for EACH device connector. You MUST have each connection used to give proper AND legal use. Let us explain. THIS box needs a cable with FOUR wires in it. The plug cap and connector must fit your generator and the inlet box. Are you OFF GRID ? If NOT, DO NOT connect this generator directly into your LOAD CENTER. Review ALL this information with a person that is QUALIFIED to assist you. Go to your local Home Depot, and take the booklet for your generator with you. Having installed many of such items, I suggest a LARGER rated generator. to keep you running for the LONG haul. Your engine will not labor under demand of a starting load, and the unit will last longer. Take a few minutes and total all the things you NEED to keep running . That will be your wattage demand.

Asked by: Randy
Your outlet on your generator has to be the same amperage and voltage that your inlet box is.

Easy to install inlet box to power home from portable generator. 30 amp generator cord (also from Reliance) fit with no problems. The connections were easy to make inside.

The overall problem is the wire comes loose when working the cover back to secure the box. I believe the screw tension terminals are better off with stranded wire, rather than using 10/3 romex solid wire. I have to double/triple check the screw terminals are cranked down, the slightest movement loosens them up
