Sometimes it helps to draw yourself a picture. (At least that's what I do :) )

Me too. Draw the picture, then verify it with the Ohmmeter (power off) and Voltmeter (power on). Once you have a picture you're confident in you can think about all the failure modes (shorts, opens, overcurrent) and their effect on safety.

I've been drawing pictures of electrical puzzles both large and small for ~55 years. No shame in it. -F

If you are not using parallel kits, then yes-otherwise the neutrals are separate.  Sometimes it helps to draw yourself a picture. (At least that's what I do :) )

Thanks Stephen - I'll make 2 more just to be safe. I can parallel my 2 smaller units but just in case I used them all separately at any point I'll have one for each generator.
