From what I have read here.
What we all end up with in the end is a bunch of adapters to use at the different events.
I had to get this cord
that has a standard 50 amp connection for the genny.
But it has this end for my outlet on the truck.
My 220 coming from the garage has this box
on the end.
The other end of the cord is run through my wall, and plugs in to the same plug I use for my welder.
It is only wired for 30 amp.
Because at home, I won't be using that much power.
You can have 30 amp power coming into your 50 amp set up.
You are just limited to what you can run.
But you can't have 50 amp power running into your 30 amp set up.
So if you end up at an event with 50 amp power, you are SOL.
I have always been taught to think beyond your immediate needs.
It is pretty much the same work and only a few $$ extra to build it all for a 50 amp.
You will use the same panel ( or close ).
You only need to go up 1 size of wire.
Then you have more capacity.
You don't want to have to change it after.
What if you need to run 220 appliances??
This is the same thinking for why I ran 12/3 wire and split my outlets.
WAY more capacity than I should need.
Plus I can turn my outlet into a 220 in 5 minutes, if I get some 220 appliance down the road.
But hey that's just me.
You do what you think is best for you.
Just givin you my thoughts.
BTW I like those predators too.
I wish they would a 7000 watt version so I could buy those instead of Honda's.
