I was not so fortunate with my 2KW Honda portable generator 120VAC receptacle. The GROUND connection and the NUETRAL CONNECTION were isolated from each other with my 2KW Honda being the source..
Your generator hookup may work just fine but if you get OPEN GROUND or OPEN NEUTRAL error mesages using the SURGE UNIT between the generator 120VAC output receptacle and the Shore Power Connection than this is what you may have to look into to make it work for you.
I first ran into this using my older 1500WATT INVERTER as a 120VAC power source for my trailer. It would always make my GFCI trip inside the trailer. The fix was to install the bonding plug like shown above.
I'm sure others on here will dime in with more info on this subject... I have not installed the SURGE PROTECTOR yet but have this problem trying to use my older 1500WATT INVERTER as 120VAC power source. I bet I will have the same problem with the NEUTRAL and/or GROUND open error message on the surge unit using my 2KW Honda Generator as source.
