This really has nothing to do with home inspection so I hope the mods don’t shut me down, but I had a passing thought today about generators and I was wondering if those who hold the knowledge here can answer me…
Portable generators have no means of getting a reference to ground for providing ground at the attached receptical…nothing I can assume anyway, right? Thus bonding it to neutral (or the frame/etc) could acutally create a situation of voltage relative to ground, right? So, do they get around this by NOT attaching anything to the ground and using a GFCI?
How IS the ground handled on portable generators?
