    Easy Generator to Home Hook Up

The other outlet not used I have used to charge my 4 D heavy duty battery if it was used that powers my 3,500 watt inverter that runs the furnace, and frig at night separate from the generator with it off during the night! I have also had the Sat/TV connected for a few hours before we went to bed and when I woke up in the morning! Of course I also have a nice wood fire in the stove downstairs as well!

If the power failure takes more than a day I will connect my down stairs frig that is next to the microwave! We live in Lake Tahoe Basin and have several power failures and with the rest of the home electrical separate, I like this better that when the power comes on. the lights come on!
