If you go that way you should probably wire one side of your panel and put all your loads (breakers) on that side.Hi Guys - I've been following this and other threads regarding connecting my 002 to a small cabin I have. The cabin is already wired and has a meter base (with ground rod) that will not be connected to the power company grid for quite some time (transfer switch not presently needed). I plan on using the 120v mode for the connection to the breaker panel so I won't have to be concerned with balancing loads like I would if I used a 220v connection.
Based on what I've read so far here and in the TM, I believe that my connection should be: L-3 (hot) to lugs on breaker panel and L-1 (neutral) to neutral/ground buss on the breaker panel. My question is: Where should the Ground wire be connected - L-1, L-O, or not at all? The Change 6 wiring modification mentioned in the TM has been made. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
I think you're mistaken about the importance of grounding. Worst case you won't be looking for a new generator. The generator might be looking for a new operator.I've called myself reading all of the threads on here about proper grounding when connecting to a residential breaker panel, but it seems they all address using a 220v connection with a ground wire connected to L-0. I can't find any information with respect to grounding using a 120v connection here or in the TM.
I guess I can try grounding to the frame of the generator and see what happens. If worse comes to worse, I'll be back to looking for another generator.
