Hey Everyone...

Quick question... I keep reading that you need to keeps the legs balanced.
Im a little fuzzy on this.

Here is my interpretation... on a 240v/120v generator with 4 conductors on the plug, you would want to keep the load on the black and red hot wires somewhat equal ?

Now.. my question... I have a 120v only generator with a 3 conductor plug (only one hot wire), and a GenTran transfer switch 300600. Since my generator is only 120v, there is only one leg? Thus would not need to worry about keeping the A & B power meters on the transfer switch balanced?

Please correct me if im wrong.

Thanks !

If its just 120v you don't have to worry. 240v you want to keep it as balanced as possible so it draws equal on both hot legs.
