Thanks for your reply. That is what my nephew thinks. Being a newly licensed electrician and trying to get established here in our hometown I know he will be dealing with the local electrical inspector for years to come. I also know that from past dealings that I had with the inspector when we had our pool installed, he is a tough guy to please. I'm not saying that the inspector should overlook anything, but I know when I sat down with the owner of the company that installed the pool and I told him what town I was in, he kind of rolled his eyes and commented on the electrical inspector being tough. The inspector failed me on inspection twice on the pool install. The electrician told me that the inspector was out of line on a couple of issues and said everything was done to code. Evidently an inspector can interpret some of the rules in the national code. The electrician finally did it the way that the inspector wanted and it was passed. The problem is that I have a short temper and got into it with him (I KNOW, MY BAD) when he failed me the second time. I'm sure he will remember this when he comes to do the inspection on the generator install. What I'm hoping for (for my nephews sake) is that the inspector comes for the inspection and approves of my nephews work so that he can get off on a good relationship with him. That is why I asked on this forum for help with how the install should exactly go. I also asked for help on another forum that deals with generator installs only (and relayed the same info that I did here) and could only get replies of "HIRE A LICENSED ELECTRICIAN", when I explain that I have, I couldn't get any more replies.
