Re: Indentify receptical

said by exocet_cm:

Curious as to what it is putting out. It worked great during Hurricane Isaac running out of the L5-30 circuit but I've never used the L14 circuit and I want to know what it can put out before I use it.

It can output twice what the L5 did, but not combined.

As in, it can offer 2000W on one circuit and 2000W on another circuit, but it cannot do 4000W on ONE circuit unless its 240v.

If you really have L14-30R, it's just a receptacle and doesn't mean it is able to do 30A @ 240v. Maybe it's just the manufacturer saving money by simply using the same receptacle on all their generator models.

Ok, cool.

You guys have answered a lot. When I get back to New Orleans I'll check and confirm the plug type. If it is different than what was listed here I'll update the thread.

Again, thanks for all of yall's help.
