I read previous posts that explained that the Sub Panel has a separate connection for ground and separate for neutral, while the Main Panel does not separate the ground & neutral - this is exactly how my panels are setup. My Sub Panel has all of the house's breakers and the panel is completely full. My Main Panel has the one Main Cut Off with areas to add breakers. I'm wanting to add a double breaker to the Main Panel for a 240 volt generator.
I have two questions:
- When I wire the generator inlet to the Main Panel, do I wire both the ground wire and neutral wire to the same connector as is done now with the ground & neutral at the Main Panel?
- The generator's owner's manual states that it's "neutral floating". I was intending to ground the generator (8' copper rod with 6 ga. solid copper). Does the floating neutral on the generator change anything?
