said by Bob4:It seems to be within specs... but just wanted to confirm that with the gang here. I've test run my setup a few times, and everything seemed to run fine.
Less than 3 volts out of 120? Seems fine to me. But let nunya be the authoritative source...
I would have made the run from generator to panel shorter, but since I wanted the availability of propane, I had to run my inlet to the opposite side of the house from the main panel... but even still, total run isn't out of tolerance as far as I can tell.
EDIT: I ran that website calculator again, and used all the same specs as before except I played with the one-way wire distance number. To go over 5% voltage drop, I would have to go over 168'. I realize that number is a calculator estimation and might not match up exactly with real-world application, but it appears that there is still a significant amount of headroom given my current wire distances.
