Bought a generator w/240/120v NEMA L14-30 (twist-lock) outlet. I want to connect it to the 120V 30a 3 prong plug on my camper.
Instead of buying a converting plug, I decided I'd do it myself. So I bought a panel box w/a 120v 30a female plug for the camper to go into (specifically for campers/RV's i guess), I bought 10' of 10/3 cord and a male L14-30 plug.
The wiring diagram of the 4 prong outlet on the generator shows (clockwise from top) Neutral, Hot, Ground, Hot where it can provide 240V by using both hots, or 120 on each side.
How do I wire this plug so that I'm only getting 120V. Do I just pick one of the hots? Does it matter which one? will this cause an unbalanced condition? This for some reason is really hard for me to find info on in the interwebs.
