1-Shut off the main breaker thus eliminating the possibility of backfeeding
2-Connect the generator to the electrical system thru a 220 outlet which was mounted close to the location of the generator.
3-shut down all unneeded circuits.
4-start the generator.
That was all there was to it. Am I missing something here? I was thinking of creating a similar setup in my own home and was wondering if anyone could share their experiences. Seems like a power transfer switch is an awful lot of money to spend when all you have to do is cut the main breaker.
Thanks in Advance,
