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