Will Some Electrician Explain this to Me? - 06/27/22 04:19 PM
I have a 12,000 Wat generator with a four wire 6 GA cable to hook the generator from the 50-amp outlet on the generator to a 50-amp power inlet box on my service panel. The generator end of the cable has a 4-prong male connector (ground, neutral and two hots). But the end of the cable for the power inlet box has a 3-slot female connector (ground, neutral and one hot). So, the two hot lines of the cable are connected to two prongs at the generator. But both hot lines are connected to one slot at the inlet box. Why is that?
