My Carri-Lite has factory generator prep in the front compartment. I carry a Honda EU3000 in the truck bed. I'd like to connect the generator output into the pre-wired box to avoid stringing a power cord to the back of the trailer.
Anyone know how Carriage sets up their generator wiring?
Thanks,
Dave

George,
Sorry for the delay, I've been up to my eyeballs lately. I'll try to look inside the cover this weekend.

Check out this link to see how Arctic Fox setup the generator wiring. Works very well and very simple.

Ken's solution looks great for him. My problem is a little different, I'd like to use the wires Carriage put in. I don't know how to connect the Honda to the "gen pre-wire"

The wiring I used was part of the generator prep package from the manufacturer. Since I have no idea how your RV is wired, I can't help much, but there aren't all that many ways to hook up two wires from a generator to an RV.
