Been a while since I was here due to being retired and doing very little these days but was presented with a question that I can't answer:
We were given an older generator that has an L6-30 receptacle (3 wire) built in and is labelled 'Neutral Bonded to Frame'. The frame has a lug for a rod. The cable we currently feed this small building with has L14-30 on both ends (4 wire). Can I get an adapter that will plug into the L6-30 on the machine and give us an L14-30 Female so we can use our standard cable? It feeds a small panel in the building that has 6 circuits that have nothing but one GFCI receptacle on each. (Neutral and ground separated in the panel & a permanent rod outside the building). No multiwire circuits. Separate line, neutral and ground to each GFCI.
This building is seldom used and currently we roll out a 7500 Generac (also labelled 'Neutral bonded to frame'), attach the geny frame to a rod that is already in the ground and use a standard RV cable (4 wire) since this unit has the L14-30 (4 wire) receptacle on it.
It seems to me there should be no issues but I am, by no means, a generator expert .... which is why I'm asking you guys.
