Try and make this as short as possible. I got a Lincoln 305D diesel welder/generator that I keep in my shop about 40' away from my house. We have been experiencing long power outages lately and have had to run it to power a little heater in the house (110v heater). I just strung some extension cords out and in through the window of the house to just get some heat inside. This got me thinking I need a better cord to run inside the house just to run a small heater and maybe a few other small electrical appliances. So I was wondering would it be better to use the 220V 4 wire plug off the welder, then convert it back to 110V inside the house (some how??) to reduce the amps that is drawn on the generator? Or does it even matter and just run the 110V plugs instead? What size of cord should be used for this length of run? Its a 10,000 watt generator. Thanks for the help.
