Well pump to generator

I did it this way and put the outlet boxes next to eachother so its easy to plug the well pump in to whatever it needs to plug into. But i know you can't use a solid wire as a power cord. I installed the 20 amp breaker so that if there's ever a short it wont draw 30 amps from the generator output.

Well pump to generator

I'm sure it makes a lot more sense in person than in my head. Trying to visualize things can get confusing.
