Resolved Question:

I have a diesel generator for back up home use.On it,it says switch off breaker at start up.I occasionally run it to keep battery charged but it is not used to power anything as remote main breaker is switched to mains.Query is that on generator panel,breaker switch his ON.Does this also need to be moved to off or is instruction referring to remote main breaker?

Thanks. The three switches on upper rt of panel as you look at it.Do they have to be up/off,when test run for battery or idling for routine check.Main remote switch to house is always off.
Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 3 years ago.
These switches have to be off when testing the battery,all 3 should be in the off position. Thank you.
