I have a 10000 watt duramax and trying to buy a 30 A twist lock Y adapter to your basic 120 plug. The ones I've seen are maxed at 7500 watt generator, where on line can I get one suited for a 10000 watt. I don't have a transfer switch YET so that leaves me with useing 10 gage ext. Cords.

30A * 240V = 7200W. This is the max rating of a LR14 30A plug/receptacle.

You can still use it. With the load that you listed, you will be below 7500W.
To get the full 10KW, you need to use the 50A connector with a 50A transfer switch. The power cord is 6-Gauge for 50 A.
