B&D I did not say that the bare frame ground should care the neutral but I want the generator FRAME grounded. I have seen generators mess up inside and electrify the frame. You walk up and touch it and you get shocked.

He needs a four pin/prong plug and a transfer system to be really safe.

I also think the frame should be grounded too. I do mean an earth ground too not hooked to the internal house ground.

ok,just making certain. I had figured you were up to speed on the topic. Actually the house or utility service ground rod is a good place to ground the generator case. Of course now we get into portable generators, some with floating neutrals and some gen sets with bonded neutrals. My summer neighbour with a camper trailer used to have problems . He had a small gen set with a bonded neutral for light loads.And a large genset with a floating neutral for AC loads and cooking etc. GFI's would trip.
