Q: Jim, I have a portable Ridgid generator rated 8,000 watts running to 10,000 watts surge. Can you recommend a transfer switch kit? Many of the kits I saw are rated for 7,500 watts. I am pretty handy, could I install the kit without a licensed electrician?
by Bill from New Jersey on January 21, 2012

A: The transfer switch size is based on the size outlet you have on your generator. Typically 8000 running watt generators have a 30A 4-Prong twist lock type outlet (L14-30R) as the largest cord connection.

All 30A connections are rated for a maximum wattage of 7500 watts; inlet boxes, transfer switches, power cords and receptacles.

So, even though your generator is rated so high, you are limited by the outlet size of 30A and you can only get 7500 watts out of your 30A outlet.

The additional wattage is available through the other outlets on the generator.

The only way to get more wattage is to go with a larger generator that offers a 50A outlet that can give you a maximum output of 12,500 watts (max for portable generators).

It is always recommended to have a certified electrician do your manual transfer switch installation. They are familiar with all your local city, county and state codes and it helps for insurance purposes.

No Power During The Recent Superstorm Sandy
After going thru the storm with no power for 3 days, we said "that's not going to happen again". So, I looked for a generator and a manual switch, found both online and ordered them. Naturally they were both back ordered after the storm.

After receiving both my electrician wired it all together for me. All works great, the switch is very easy to use. However, I would have ordered the next size bigger with at least 10 circuits had I figured out the extra power of my generator and... more
