    Requesting this thread be locked, due to promotion of activities deemed unsafe by our lawmakers...

    (Yes...I know...but you have to draw the line somewhere).

    Sorry, Kast...but think about it. This thread has run the course from placement of the generator (inside vs outside) to shelter of the generator, to connection, disconnection, transfer switches, legalities, responsibilities and individual freedom to ignore the law.

    What next? If it's gonna be good, I'll stay for the popcorn

    I completely understand that a thread has an end of life, but I don’t understand why someone would not just stop reading said post, and skip the need to request it be locked of all things.

    That is a very ignorant and stupid statement. I won't say anymore.

    Safety is my number 1 concern. Thats why i try to educate all the other idiots in the world, to follow the proper procedures and codes! So they can be safe, and the linemen working down the street can be safe. However the stupid and ignorant cannot be helped.

    If there were less stupid people in the world it would make my job easier. So lets get rid of GFCI outlets, because people should be smart enough to know water and electricity don't mix. Lets get rid of the stupid arc fault breakers that are $45 a piece and must be used virtually in new residential construction. The only reason we have them is mainly idiots running extension cords under carpet/ furniture, they get frayed and short out. Heck while we are at it lets get rid of breakers, people should know when their circuit is overloaded! A fault condition is considered a what if. There should never in normal operation be one.

    Bottom line the " The purpose of the NEC is the practical safeguarding or persons and property from the hazards arising from the use of electricity."
