I wonder if someone could help me. I have a 4000W generator with a TT-30P (RV) outlet and I want to use a through-wall transfer kit with an L14-30R receptacle to pass electricity into my house. I have the RV plug, a length of 4-wire 10 gauge cord and the L14-30R adapter. When running the wires from the RV plug to the adapter, do I tie the two hots together at the plug so that I have all 4 wires at the adapter, or do I use only one hot and leave one unused? Thanks...

Do not tie hots togever unless you really need. You will do it, and forget. But some day ,some year, somebody (may be ever you) will plug 250V source, and this will be surprise.
PS: just IMHO.
PPS: Let me to explain.
If you connect TWO differen phases to L14-30R, and will use your generator cable only for this connection, this will be relatively OK.


But if you connect both hots into ONE phase - this potentially will burn, if you connect wrong adapter.
