I am planning on installing an interlock kit and backfeeding my panel with my portable generator. The backfeed will be to a 30 amp breaker, coming from the 240/30A outlet on my Generac 5500. The question is about the distance the generator can be from the panel.
I can install the outdoor inlet right outside wall with the panel, resulting in around a 6 foot run of 10-3 romex with ground. However, while the generator fine there, it would be little harder to get to in that location for refueling and maint.
Alternatively, the most convenient spot for the generator would result in about a 80 foot run of 10/3 romex. Will that length of run affect the performance or reliability of the power?
