This one looks pretty decent for your application
Thanks MEC, I appreciate the link. Since this temporary (6 months or less) I decided to go with the cord & plug suggestion.
My friend is contacting an electrician to install a whole house standby generator.
If it were me, I would use a mechanical interlock and utilize the Generacs 30A twist lock with an exterior power inlet box.
Then you can manually activate all the circuits the generator can support
I totally agree, this it is what I did for myself with a 15KW Generac Quiet Source before I installed my 16KW Generac Guardian 6462 3 months ago.
It worked very well for 10 years. So nice to not have to deal with gasoline any more. Neverless lugging that Quiet Source out of my garage, how they can call that portable?
