What I do is refer the photo like we see here to UL and have them reevaluate the situation. If they say okay, than that is good for me.
That is not an option for inspectors here, listed = approved.
The problem I have is this.
We can look at the inside of almost any listed equipment and find NEC violations, that outlet may well be wired with 14 AWG and have a 20 amp OCP.
NEC violation yes, but fine if part of listed equipment.
If inspectors start second guessing listings where would they stop?
As you can tell I think our amendment is a good one.
It also takes responsibility or concern away from the inspector for listed equipment.
Lets face it a home generator is a dangerous piece of equipment, fingers can get into moving parts, you can be burnt, the exhaust can kill and of course the electricity can hurt you.
At some point Americans have to be responsible for there own actions.
That cover clearly states.
"Approved for wet locations only when closed"
