    looking a a dual fuel generator for power. I’m planning to bug in my home. My question is how do I hook up my generator to my house panel ? Or do I need a bunch of long quality extension cords.?

    First I know a generator won’t supply the whole house with the same load. Second we will be pulling anything plugged in out and only only plugging in the minimum stuff and only when needed. I’m pretty sure we will keep a small frig and freezer and cycle them on and off enough to keep thing cold enough. Use a Microwave as needed. Batt Chargers as needed if solar charging is poor that day. Lights as needed. Occasional power tool. I’m still sizing my generator needs. Figuring nothing less than 4000 probably 7000.

    So much to learn
