Generator to panel wiring


A 3 wire dryer circuit is X-Y-N (usually red and black, and always accompanied by white).

Optional grounding may be accomplished by daisy chaining a separate ground wire from the dryer frame to a known ground.

A 4 wire (including ground) dryer plug may not be connected to a 3 wire circuit (without ground).

Generator to panel wiring


I think I will OK if I replace the metal handy box and plate of my adapter with plastic versions and ground the chassis of the generator.

Thanks to all those with constructive comments.
