Questions & Answers

Will this cable work with a Champion 7500W generator? Model number 100296.

Will this cable work with a Champion 7500W generator? Model number 100296.
Asked by: Bugs07
Yes, the plug on this cable will fit the 30 amp four wire receptacle on your generator and any other generator that has a 30 amp L14-30 outlet.

Can I mount the external outlet box for the generator cord anywhere on the outside of house? Say 30ft from the main box?

Asked by: Ryan
Yes, you can, as long as you use the proper wire AWG for the distance you need to cover inside your house. Also, remember that you should be wiring to a transfer switch - not directly to your main loadcenter.

Is an adapter available to allow a power strip with a 3-prong plug to be connected to this cord?

Want to connect household items such as a refrigerator, lamps, space heater, and iPad to the generator via this extension cord. Want to use a standard electronic device-type power strip with 6-8 outlets and a 3-prong plug. Is there an adapter from Reliance or Home Depot to allow me to do this? And do you see any problems with this type of set up?

Can I connect two of these together to make the length of 80' & then connect to my power generator?

Asked by: meljon
The voltage drop for a 10awg power cord connected to a generator supplying 240 volts, single phase voltage (average generator with this type of outlet supplying 240 volts, 30 Amps) on average is .3% or 3/4 of a volt every 10 feet of power cord. So for 80 feet of this size power cable, the voltage drop would be approximately 6 volts at the far end. Some generators output slightly more than 240 volts out of the factory to make up for the anticipated average voltage drop, or the output voltage might be manually adjustable to compensate for your specific needs (contact your generator manufacturer's tech support to find out if adjusting the output voltage of your specific model is possible, and how to do it if possible). Another option would be to make your own power cable with 8awg 4 wire power cable (or have an electrician do it for you if you're not the handy type). The larger gauge cable will reduce the amount of voltage drop vs the same length 10awg cable, but will be more expensive per foot of cable. All things being equal, the 8awg power cable would only have about 1/2 of a volt of voltage drop per 10 feet, so only about 4 volts at 80 feet. There are several variables involved when working with electricity, but the best advice is to keep your power cords as short as possible to limit voltage drop, which can prevent motors from overheating, as well as other low voltage problems. If in doubt about anything, consult your generator manufacturer or a licensed electrician just to be safe.

This cable is used to connect a portable generator to your house power inlet that's normally connected to a transfer switch near your home's power loadcenter. The cable is well made and appears to be very durable.
