Q: My generator -Honda eu3000is - has all 120v outputs. Will the Gen Tran 2026 switch wire correctly for 120 v input.
by Crispin Massay from Alaska on January 18, 2011

A: According to the specifications for your Honda eu3000is, it has a 30A 125V twist lock receptacle which can accommodate a larger transfer switch. It is recommended to to upgrade to the Gen-Tran 30-Amp model instead and then use a 30A Power Inlet Box that matches the twist lock connection you have on your unit. Gen-Tran 30-Amp 3028

You will also need a proper Power Inlet Box Gen-Tran 30-Amp 53004

Works Great But You May Need To Get New Breakers.
Comes with quad breaker that is 15-30-30-15. I needed 15's and 20's and needed to expand to 10 ckts so I needed to buy 2 quad breakers in addition to the 60 amp breaker required for the main panel. Installation was easy and it's nice to be able to see the load on each leg using the meters.

Great Service And Communication !!!!
When I placed the order I was told it was not in stock at the time and they would notify me asap when the parts will ship and did ship. I received an e-mail several days later telling me the expected ship date and time of arrival through tracking numbers. The turn around time was quick and just like the e-mail stated.

Thanks for the great service and communication !!!!

Using This Switch For Utility Vs Battery Back-up
I like this switch -- suits my 'battery back-up' (for a small cottage residence). HOWEVER -- the left hand watt-meter sticks, and doesn't properly return to zero when everything's off.

Follow Up From March...big Nasty Fall Snowstorm/power Outage
Well...I wrote back in March that I Loved this gen/set, but had never had to use it much. Well, we got hit here in CT a Big Wallop over Halloween weekend. 750k folks w/o power, some for a week and more. 16 inches of tree bustin wet snow...BAM !!..Had just changed the oil on the Winco. Limbs down all around, cut my way out of the driveway 400 feet.

But FIRST...Started the Winco and was worry-free. Funny thing, just last month I had thought to myself "Will this thing EVER get used... more

My First Generator & Manual Transfer Switch
This was my first generator and first manual transfer switch, I waited a bit long time for the panel because it was on back order. I finally got the panel and it was simple to install. I removed the breakers that came with the panel and installed my own.

The only problem that I had with this panel was with the 3/4 inch flexible plastic conduit that came with the panel,  first off I couldn't attach the conduit to the panel. It was really really hard to attach that to the panel. So hard that... more

Good Transfer Switch
GenTran 3028 seems to be well made. Hookup is a breeze (as long as you have some sort of electrical understanding of circuit panels). The blue flex conduit is 3 4 inch. The wires are a tight squeeze in it. If you remove the blue flex conduit from the wires, prepare for a struggle to get them all to slide back through without some sort of lube.

I added 2 extra circuits to make it 10 total. That was done by removing the 20amp double pole and replacing it with 4 half sized breakers. If your... more

Basic Backup
We bought this package to be able to backup basic items around the house during an outage. The whole purchase was flawless from the great price to the free shipping. The Honeywell unit was easy to assemble, owners manual is easy to read and most important it started first time with one push of the electric start button and worked perfectly for the break in period. We also purchased the Gen-Tran transfer switch and a 75' power supply cord which was complete with everything needed to install... more
