Re: Interlock Murray panel

Adding an inlet is a lot like a two pole outlet. You'll want to locate near where the generator will run, of course, and add an additional ground conductor split-bolted to your house ground to connect to your generator's frame ground terminal. Also, ideally, the generator won't have an internal neutral-ground bond.

Adding the interlock will take some drilling on the panel face, not a big deal, and yes, the 3 KW generator sounds like it will be fine. Any other motors besides the fridge? Sump pump, well, septic dosing?

Nope really basic house it's from the early 1920's she has city water the only pump she needs to worry about is the tiny pump on her boiler.

yeah I think so too she only uses CFL's in the house and the two largest loads would be the fridge and microwave, I did not check the furnace pump but it's really tiny I'd be shocked if it was more then 1/2 HP.
