Chargeverter plug adapter

I could of just bought a 25 foot extension cord that uses the chargeverter 2's stock cable end but I already bought the gen connect kit so why not repurpose it instead.
 
I guess it's a compliment to the connector.. they are just so good you gotta use em for anything you can think of.
 
No reason why not, they don’t show a wiring diagram but there’s only one logical way that can be wired.
I would make that adapter you wanted a foot long and zip-tie it to your existing accord about 2 foot back so you can loop the other around and plug it into the adapter perfectly safe
L5-30P L14-30R

This is for illustration purposes only I did not actually make this
Also that generator coughing you mentioned might check the spark plug that sounds a little odd but then again there's no reason to overdrive the generator not gonna save you no fuel Plus you could probably double its life by operating at 80%
Good luck 👍

Another option probably cheaper than a chargverter, buy a used 5-6k generator give it a tune up stick it in the corner and save it for that hurricane that you hope never comes better fuel economy with a larger generator doesn't have to be an eco-friendly generator because the chargverter will allow you to run it under next to full load only down side not quiet like honda

That’s a great idea, thanks! Keeps it from getting lost or getting inadvertently used for some other purpose.

Wait, use a bigger (dirty, noisy) generator with my CV because it’s cheaper than the CVs and generators I already own?

Well I don't know where you live but I've picked generators up for less than a $100 before I wish I could get a chargverter for that
I'm on 60acres in the woods I used to backfeed from an out building that 250ft away I can't here a thing only problem couldn't tell when power would come back on when back feeding and the closest neighbor is over 1/2 mile away and no street lights
But now I've got solar so no more outages.

OK, Jared, you would know if anyone would, what’s the part number and price for the AC connector on the CV GC (or alternately the cordset)?
Thanks!

Unfortunately, I was not able to find the part number for the connector. However, I will look into this and see what I can do.
