My (7250/8250) generator has 4 outlets. Two GFI's, 1 L5-30R, 1 L14-30R. During the recent storm I used the GFI outlets and everything worked fine... but I've been told I should use one of the 'L' outlets to properly balance the load.
So I have a couple of questions...
- What's the difference between the two?
- Which one should I get a cord for?
(I'd be connecting to regular 12g extension cords)
- Are the outlets mutually exclusive?
(ie, if I use the L-14 is the GFI or LS available for use)
