Your generator would require a 20 amp generator cord which fits your L14-20 output. Northern does a carry the correct cord in the same 40 foot size. See item below.

Question

Can I connect two of the 40 ft cords together, this will be enough to reach my transfer switch

I have the generator secure in a small well vented shed and don't want to move it. I want to install the transfer switch and that would be about 70 ft away from the generator. Can I put the two 40ft cords together?
thank you

On this Reliance Generator Power Cord, two can be connected together, however it is not recommended. A single cord for the length need would be better. Northern Tool does not offer longer cords but we do carry the end connectors.

Question

30Amp and 40ft long cord, what gauge wire is in this cord? 10 or 8

Longer cords like this add circuit resistance and cause heating and current losses. i would prefer 8 gauge wire in an extension cord of this length. (240V / 30 Amp)
