From the images above, I have a 30 amp generator inlet that connects to a transfer switch. I’d like to relocate that inlet box to the outside of the house so that I don’t have to run my L14-30 cable from the generator through an open door or cracked window. I’d like to just plug my generator outdoor safely. I don’t know if I need a different inlet box that’s weather proof and/or different cable to withstand outdoor weather when not in use. This is Florida weather so no harsh winter months but lots of rain and heat in the summer.
What do I need to purchase to make the move? Or can I use the existing inlet box outdoor and just drill a hole for the cable/wire to pass through my exterior wall and then seal it after hooking it up to the inlet box once I place it outdoor?
The inlet box, when placed outdoors, would be right on the opposite side of the wall it’s currently on in the same spot. So it’s a matter of passing its wire through the wall and moving the inlet box right outside of where it currently sits
