Customer Question

just got a new 30 kw diesel generator 240 single phase. generator head has a 125 amp breaker which I will get my hot leads from. I'm going to hook this to a panel in my construction trailer which hAs 110 and 220 circuits In it. Do I just run the hot leads to the main lugs? what about neutral?

Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. Connecting without a neutral won't give you 120V outlets. You'll need to install a transformer.
