Want to try explaining a little better what you are doing?
What you wrote make no sense.

Where does the genny fit into all this? I see NO provisions for it.


Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.

As far I can see there is couple issue that did come up real quick.,

A) you have wrong brandname breakers in your inside panel ( I counted at least 3 for sure )

Second thing where is the generator breaker is located ??

Third I rather have the generator breaker located outside. less thing can go wrong.

The answer will be based on NEC ( National Electrical code ) or CEC ( Cananda Electrical code ) or ECF ( Electrique Code France )
