OK, hopefully one last question for now. I just want to confirm that I only need to pull 3 #18 wires back from my utlity panel in a separate conduit - 2 for the 240VAC (N1 & N2) that will be used as a sensor if I want to have auto test mode work and 1 (T1) for the 120VAC that runs the battery charger and control.

Stupid question, but is there no common or ground wires needed for both that I would connect somehwere. Remember I will have no transfer switch wires coming back since we will be on maual start, etc. when the generator needs to be used.

Does anybody have knowledge of this?

From what I can see the 120v circuit. will get its neutral from the feeder neutral connection in the gen.

Ceb58,
That is correct and I know for a fact that you will get a shock from that neutral if you disconnect it and the T-1 line is live.

Bahamas I wish! I thought I lived on an island in Puget Sound Washington. Only slightly colder water temps.
