Customer: no

A 30A twist lock that only has 3 prongs is a 120V service.

A twist lock that has 4 prongs is a 240V service.

Although it could be adapted to work, you would only be able to power 1 side of the indoor panel.

3500W is not much power. It would run a few lights, and a microwave or window A/C unit, but that is about it.
