The only safe way to set up a generator in your cabin is to have the upgrade services performed by a licensed residential or commercial electrical expert.
When the generator is hooked up directly to your cabin, you won’t have to worry about losing power during storms or inclement weather.
My mom contacted an electrical supplier near her home. The electrical supplier had licensed electricians working for the repair service. They were glad to help mom out with an appointment. They sent a commercial electrical services expert to speak with my mom about the different types of generators that were available. The girl spent about half an hour talking with mom and going through the brochures for all of the different types of equipment. To be honest, mom did not realize there were so many openings available for her cabin. The electrician near her explained everything really well and by the end of the conversation mom was ready to hire the electrical contracting services supplier to set up a generator that would run her whole cabin. It was really pricey to have the generator installed, but mom knew that it was a one-time fee. Once the generator was set up and the fees were paid, mom was going to be able to have that generator for the rest of her life. Next year, she won’t have to be worried about any of the Summer storms or hurricane season. My mom could have 100 mph winds that knock down every power line on the grid. She will still have electricity in her cabin to power the fridge, freezer, and any unit she needs to use.
