Connecting Portable Generator to Electric Hot Water Heater
My XP4400E works great. I would like to use it to power my Electric
water heater in an emergency. The heater as connected to the Power
Panel has three wire L1,L2, N.
Each L1 and L2 is 240 volts as measured to the N. The wiring diagram for
the Generator indicates that the L14-30 outlet is wired for 120V each
leg (or two 120V circuits). Is there a way to modify this outlet to
produce 240V on one leg to accommodate one heating element in the Water
heater. (It is wired for non-simultaneous operation).
If this is not possible, would purchasing a 10,000 Watt Generator fill
my need? Could I get a copy of the wiring diagram of the 10,000 watt
