Portable generator hookup to home(easy way)
I recently got a 3500w gas portable generator for in case.
I know I can simply connect to home electric device directly from that GEN(generator).
But I think the GEN should be connected to home on 3 ways.
#1. Using separate trans_switch panel and wire each line from Main electricity panel. - Best way? most recommend ..
#2. Using Interlock switch to use safe mode either Main power or GEN power with that Interlock switch. - Acceptable, but still hassle.
#3. My way... and this is my question. Will it work???
To do this, just provide one MALE-TO-MALE connector.
And, turn main & all other switches OFF on house power panel , and connect/hookup one male from GEN to a connector outside of house.
And switch on main panel for this outside connector and only some switches those can be used in home.
So, the power from GEN will go to a connect on outside of house to Main panel, and distribute thru some switches those were on for limited/minimum use for emergency situation.
ONE THING! NEVER MAIN SWITCH ON WHILE USING GENERATOR FOR SURE!!! - I know it is very dangerous !!!
Other than danger or illegal, Is this way work??
Is this way OK? or Any other easy way other than #1 & #2?
Thank you for your help for in advance. Joseph
