Grounding your generator!

TO PREVENT ELECTRICAL SHOCK- MAKE SURE YOUR GENERATOR IS PROPERLY GROUNDED!

Just Like your automobile, a genertor is an internal combustion engine and produces deadly carbon monoxide. Only operate it outdoors, in well ventilated, dry areas. It should never be close to doors, windows, or air-conditioning units. A general "rule of thumb"is to allow a minimum of 5' (five feet) clearance from all doors and windows.

NEVER WIRE YOUR GENERATOR DIRECTLY TO YOUR HOMES WIRING.
When you connect an elecric generator to your home's wiring, it can be dangerous to you and others. A "directly wired" generator can
"backfeed" onto the power lines, and then when it encounters a utility transformer it will "step-up" or increase this voltage to thousands of volts and hurt or kill utility lineman making "outage" repairs great distances from you. USE A TRANSFER SWITCH TO PROTECT YOUR GENERATOR AND THE UTILITY WORKER'S LIFE.
