GFI's do not work well with joined neutral and grounds. If you have GFI's you should separate them.
Before I picked up my B&S Q6500, I was really worried about GFIs tripping when connected to the house. What I found was that with the Q6500, I'm not having any issues with the GFI, so I'm leaving well enough alone.. That is, unless someone can give me a good reason why I should, even though everything works fine as is.

Yes, I'm using the twist lock. I even tried connecting a heat gun to the 120v outlet while I had the 240v twist lock connected to the house service panel and I didn't have any GFIs trip.. not in the house or the generator.
