Good to know it's doable. Thanks!
There's a big gap between "this technically works" and "this is a good idea". Specifically, this is a technique very loudly denounced by every electric company and generator manufacturer.

As for NC's neighbors. Well, the whole "everyone ignores their own advice" thing springs to mind. Doctors smoking, for instance. More so, a lineman or whatever his position was knows the ins and outs extremely well. This is very much a case of "if you have to ask questions, you should not do it."

The item you really should add to do it right is called a generator interlock. It's a plate that covers the main circuit breaker and the circuit breaker for the generator input. It's designed such that both cannot be activated at the same time, hence the term interlock.

The plate is specific for the type of electrical box you have.
