    As others have said if the generator is properly wired and there is some phantom voltage present, then that is not the cause as phantom voltage will not be capable energizing equipment.

    IMO, a ceiling fan is not what is referred to in (G). It refers to art. 422. Look at 422.11(G)-- I don't think the fan qualifies. Why not just use #12 and be right.

    How did that get approved with a 20 amp circuit? This is not compliant.
