I currently use a Honda Eu2000 with cords (getting old dragging them out) No, I am not interested in doing a backfeed. (Illegal, Risky, and can be a pain) I am researching/pointing to a Honda Eu6500 with a Reliance transfer switch. I cannot do whole house (all electric with Geo-Thermal). We heat 2000 sf with the Clydesdale to 68 just fine Reliance Transfer Switches usually only have 2 220 breakers in them (without moving to a higher box) I plan on powering well pump, and water heater. I'm still trying to learn how long it takes to heat a water heater/how long the water stays hot. I assume well pump will fill water heater and then I will shut well off. My main question is that I have a 60 amp 220 breaker that feeds a shop. I would like to send power to the shop without having to use a 220 switch in a transfer box. My question is can I use a single circuit from the transfer switch and power half the 220 breaker-thus supplying 110 to a shop breaker? If this is possible I noticed the 220 shop cables are thicker ...does anyone know if the 220 cables in the reliance are also thicker? -because the reliance black wire is what goes back to the breaker. If not possible, I can either forgo plans (and use keys to get in)..Problem is that the man door freezes shut. If I move up to a larger transfer switch, I might hook up the range as well. I don't think 1 burner pulls all that much. Other than that, I understand how it hooks up. I understand that I can't power everything and I plan on giving things a break. Just wanted to see if anyone else had done such a setup.
