I am looking at a generator that is rated for 2600 watts, total current draw 25 amps. It is currently set up with two hot lines separately connecting to a duplex receptacle rated for 15 amps and together connected to a receptacle rated for 15 amps at 240 volts. The supply paths include an 11 amp thermal breaker before the receptacle.
May I connect both hot lines together and instead replace the receptacle and breakers with one rated for the total current rating of the generator head without damaging the generator head windings?
I will also link to a similar question asking if multiple paths from supply to ground increases the allowable current draw but I don't think this is a duplicate as the focus is whether or not it exceeds the rating of those windings in the generator head. I will link to an answer to another question that discusses this.
