Video Transcript for Review of Hughes Autoformers Generator Plug Adapters - Ground Neutral Bonded Plug - HU33FR

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at this ground neutral bonded plug. This is going to be for your generators that have a floating neutral. This will prevent any of the open ground or open neutral error faults that sometimes result from that floating neutral on your generator. This will plug right into a 15 amp AC socket on the generator, and it is going to bond your neutral and your ground together to help prevent those error faults so that you can get power to your RV again. This is right about one and a half inches in diameter by two inches long, not counting the prongs there.

And so it's really not going to take up much room. You can have it permanently installed on your generator. You're not going to have to worry about removing it because of space issues or anything like that. So a really nice little simple solution to fix that open neutral or open ground problem with your generator. So it's going to complete our work for it today.

Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

This product saved me! I had just bought an expensive Honda EU3000is generator and I found that it wasn’t working with my high efficiency furnace. Only the fan would come on without the burner. Come to find out the generator has a floating neutral. I plugged this baby into one of the outlets on the generator, ran a chord out of the other to the furnace and what do you know the bonded signal did the trick! Furnace runs like a champ. Very happy!




by:

Product is great, works well. The customer service was outstanding! Through no fault of etrailer, or mine, the post office did not deliver the first package. USPS said it was delivered, but it did not show up. When I emailed to discuss the situation,, Mackenzi responded quickly with procedure. I did have to file a police report since USPS said it was delivered, which is understandable, but a second package was shipped quickly. Again, not their fault, but they responded quickly and professionally, which is what impressed me.




by:

I received the Ground/Neutral bonded plug, two days after purchase. awesome!!! I plugged it into my generator and my travel trailer got the electricity to run through my Watchdog surge protector with no error codes (E7). Thanks. I will continue to buy from etrailer for all my RVing needs,




by:

This plug is great for generator use I will always carry mine.a must have or most generators won't power to cord.




by:

Quality of the product is good and fits well did not solve my particular problem not the fault of the product just that was not what was wrong




by:

This item was purchased so we were prepared to use our generator in certain situations. Upon arrival tried adapter and it worked well.
Have not had a situation where we needed it but peace of mind knowing we are prepared.




by:

I received it in a timely manner and it works as advertised




by:

My newer furnace has grounding protection, with this in place I can run my heat during a winter power outage without issue using my generator. For those with generators have your furnace wired in a way that you can plug It in by wall outlet. One extension cord and we were set.




by:

Worked like a charm on my Yamaha 2000 inverter. Now I can use it on my 5th wheel toy hauler that has a surge protector built in it. Very Happy Camper.

  • Troubleshooting An Open Ground Error When Using A Surge Protector With Generators
    Your generators have a floating neutral so that's why you're receiving the open ground error. The solution to this is to plug the Hughes Autoformers Ground Neutral Bonded Plug for Generators # HU33FR into an open 15 amp outlet on the generators. You CAN NOT plug this into any outlets in your Lance 650, only on the generators. These plugs will clear your open ground error and allow your surge protector and generators to properly function.

    Yes, the Portable Power Watchdog Surge Protector with Bluetooth - 30 Amp, # HU97FR can be used with generators however, many generators (portable) have a floating ground/neutral; so you will want to determine this with yours as you may need an added item.

  • Watchdog Surge Protector Compatibility With Generator Use
    The Hardwired Power Watchdog Surge Protector with Bluetooth and Emergency Shut Down - 50 Amp Item # HU27FR is compatible with generator use. One thing you will have to note is that some generators have a ‘floating neutral’. This might cause the Power Watchdog EPO surge protectors or any other EMS surge protector to give you an ‘open ground’ or ‘open neutral’ error code and prevent power from going into your RV. If this is the case with your generator you can resolve this by plugging the...

  • Can the Power Watchdog Surge Protector with Bluetooth Be Used With a Generator
    Yes, the Power Watchdog Surge Protector with Bluetooth, # HU47FR, for 50 amp and the 30 Amp version, # HU97FR can be used with a generator. However, many generators (portable) have a floating ground/neutral.

  • Is the Hughes Autoformers Voltage Booster with Surge Protection Compatible with a Generator
    No, the Hughes Autoformers Voltage Booster with Surge Protection # HU24FR will not work with your inverter generator. It is designed to be used with a pedestal at an RV park, not a generator. We do not have a voltage booster that will work with a generator. But if you are wanting a surge protector that works with a generator you can use the Power Watchdog Surge Protector # HU27FR. One thing you will want to note is that some generators have a ‘floating neutral’. This could cause the Power...
