We are wiring a "buddy" plug into the gen output in that front...

That is what I was referring to. When I installed the new generator head that is where the wires went.

My buddy says the powertech gen pigtails into a junction box behind the unit.

May be safer to wire a buddy plug from the main breaker panel, where the buddy plug can be protected with normal circuit breaker and kept turned off when not needed.

If using a buddy plug for another RVer, breaker may be better a little lower than...
