Red Marks on Circuit Breakers

The number 10 bare copper ground wire is shaped in the rear of the generator inlet box and then wrapped around the green ground screw using the included clamp

The red tape marks on some of the circuit breakers are there so that the homeowner can easily identify some of the critical circuits that will require generator power. These include the heating system, the well pump, and the refrigerator. The bathroom and kitchen lighting circuits are also identified.
