In part two of this series on wiring a house for use with a generator Mountain State Prepper takes us through the hookup process. Wiring home service to incorporate a manually switched generator is not rocket science. But it’s not without risk either. Remember, you’re dealing with sufficient power to cause permanent injury or death if you don’t know what you’re doing, or if you’re not careful. This is NOT an instructional video; but merely the way MSP did it. Do your research. If you’re not comfortable taking on a project like this, hire a professional. With that said, I hope you find this post helpful. Please like/reblog, and please subscribe to our YouTube channel to get more videos on
Mountain State Prepper shows us how he wired his home so he can safely use his generator to power (some of) his house’s circuits in the event of a power outage. Whether you’re facing a 24 hour outage, or it lasts five days or more (as happened to us just a couple of years ago), electricity can be the difference between riding it out in relative comfort or being miserable until the lights come on. This is even more true if you have small children. Trust me.

We use the leavings from our Halloween Jack-o-Lanterns to make some roasted pumpkin seeds. We try two recipes; a sweet maple flavor, and a spicy Cajun variety. We’ll give you the recipes, show you how, and show you how they turn out.
So, we were visiting my father this weekend. After church on Sunday, we drug the kids outside for a walk around part of the property. Abby wasn’t very enthusiastic, as she wanted to stay inside watching a movie. I have nothing against movies, or tablets, or game consoles. But kids playing and exploring on a farm is a different kind of fun. You can see Miss Abby eventually got in the “swing” of things. We searched for arrowheads in some recently-turned earth, checked out some deer tracks, swung on some wild grape vines, and generally had a great time. You can see Amanda got a turn too, and even Mrs. SSP got in on the act. My point is this.
