I am buying a 7500w generator and already have an existing transfer panel in my garage. Can I safely operate my generator outside the garage using this cord ? Thanks.
Asked by: Allen
The tag on the cord says not to use it outdoor unless there is a tag designating it as an outdoor cord. As there is no tag attached designating it as an outdoor cord, and as the tag says "do not use when wet" the only logical conclusion is that IT IS NOT an outdoor cord.

Asked by: Joka
Verify that the plug, on your generator, is 30amp and has a 30amp push-button or toggle switch fuse or breaker. With either of those over current devices, you will be fine. As for the extra power, over 7500watts, 9200/11500watts, the remaining watts would be spread across the remaining receptacles on your generator while you are using your 30 amp plug. Similar to your 200 or 400amp main breaker in your house’s electric panel, which doesn’t provide all 200 or 400 amps to your 40amp dryer or your 60amp air-conditioning unit. You will be fine.

The description for this cord says "outdoor" but the tag attached to it says "A cord not marked for outdoor use is to be used indoors only. See Label for Outdoor marking" There is no "outdoor marking" on that tag or any other tag or label on the cord, so is this cord really for outdoor use? The tag does say "DO NOT USE WHEN WET" which would seem to make it unusable outdoors except on a dry sunny day. Also, Home Depot recommends this cord for use with the Ford Ford FG11050PBE 9000/11050 watt generator but the cord has a tag saying "7500" watts and the warning tag says "do not plug more than the number of specified watts into this cord" so that seems to make this cord inappropriate for the Ford Ford FG11050PBE generator. And the tag on the cord says "Before using please read both sides carefully" but the other side is in a foreign language that I cannot read. Do I need to get an interpreter before I can use the cord?
Asked by: garybuffalo
For what I have read, portable generators should never be used in inclement weather. That is why many owners build sheds for their generators. I purchased a tent for my generator on the internet that shields the connection and the generator controls in bad weather. The other end of the cable attaches to a dedicated outdoor connector on the side of my garage which is connected to my electrical panel. My generator is rated as 8 Kw. Since the cable is rated for 7,500 watts, I do not run lights and appliances that combined would require anywhere near the 7500 watt limit. So far, I have not had the need to run the generator for a sustained period of time, but the cable functioned without a problem in several test runs.

Can this cord be used with a generator with 10,000 starting watts and 8,000 running wastes?

Asked by: Nonna
Yes, if your generator has the corresponding female receptacle. The receptacle would be fused at 30 amps so there would be no risk of overloading the wire. You could also use the 120 volt work receptacles at the same time since you'd still have plenty of power available.

Reliance Controls 40 ft. 30-Amp Generator Power Cord is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 185.

The Home Depot web site suggested I purchase this cord to go with the generator I bought on the Home Depot web site. However, NONE of the sockets on the generator matched the plugs on the cord, so I had to send it back. So I kept the generator and returned the cord. The experts who put together the web site need to do their homework . . . The Ford 10,000 generator has unusual sockets. The cord, however, seemed of excellent quality.

Set up new home with portable generator and transfer switch as back up in case of outage at our new home. Ran over 30 days in 10 years at is home and the Reliance cord still looked new. So this is a repeat purchase of a very well designed and made product that has the stamina to perform for years

I like that its long enough to keep my stuff under a roof (dry spot) and be plugged in. I also like when you plug it into the outlet you give it a small twist and it's locked in.
