I have read all of the generator threads that I could find but I still have some questions.
I am building a house and wanted a transfer switch for my portable generator. My generator is a Honda generator. Looking at the manual Honda says:
"Honda portable generators have a system ground that connects generator frame components to the ground terminals in the AC output receptacles. The system ground is not connected to the AC neutral wire. If the generator is tested by a recptacle tester, it will not show the same ground circuit condition as for a home receptacle."
Is this a bonded neutral or not?
Will a transfer switch that just switches the two hot wires be ok or should I switch the neutral also?
If I can use a two pole transfer switch, Do I need to connect the generator frame to an earth ground (i.e. ground rod by the generator)?
Sorry for the long post
