Having spent a lot of time last summer trying to track down the source of stray voltage on an earth ground at the barn. I will put in my view that " The only way to tie in a generator is to completely isolate the generator from the Power lines with a switch that breaks ALL incoming wires". A faulty appliance or a bad connection can cause a back feed to occur leading to energizing of the power lines and thus causing injury and or DEATH to occur to a Lineman performing repairs.! It would be much better to be hot or cold for a time than to know that my actions caused someones injury or Death. I will never again hook a generator through a back fed breaker in my switch box.

Good Post, NO Problem, if you want choose a 3 Pole Transfer Switch (switch both UnGrounDED Hot Phase Conductors PLUS the Neutral Grounded Conductor) that's ALSO code compliant but remember then Genset must be configured as a "Separately Derived Source",,,,,,,,Its Neutral must be bonded to a "Grounding Electrode"

Fun chattin with ya, keep safe
