WARNING:
Do not connect to a building’s electrical
system unless the generator and transfer
switch have been properly installed and
the electrical output has been verified by
a qualified electrician. The connection
must isolate the generator power from
utility power and must comply with all
applicable laws and electrical codes.
Using a generator indoors CAN KILL YOU IN MINUTES.
Generator exhaust contains carbon monoxide. This is a
poison you cannot see or smell.
NEVER use inside a home
or garage, EVEN IF doors
and windows are open.
