Sub panel for generator
I would like to install a sub panel off of my main its 200 amp sq d homeline . I want the grounds and neutrals in the sub to so I won't have to worry with unbonding gen . My gen can do 50 amps but the sub would have a good many breakers I'm all elec. what I won't to do is have a inlet on sub from main and be able to unplug that and then plug my gen in . The only plug I see big enough to handle grid power would be a pin and sleeve plug maybe a 125 amp or 150 amp I could manage the load when on gen power . Is there another plug you would know of . I have a bobcat 225 welder I do not want to unbond it but I don't want to run it though the main with a interlock when it's bonded:thumbup:

You cannot do what you want. Its time you do more research on the proper way to connect a generator.

I have looked at a lot of ways I just want to be totally off the grid where I hook the gen.

Don't worry about it being bonded or not. Just run it to an inlet and install an interlock on your panel, and be done with it. You can find one cheap for a Square D panel.
