Finally someone has manufactured an affordable true 30 Amp parallel kit (around $60): you'll also need the adapter:

To save time and hassle, I recommend buying the ( ) Honda parallel cable set and cutting it instead of buying the wire separately and banana plugs. It will save you $20 to do it the way I show, but it will just take a little more time.

Safety Banana Plug ends: (about $25 @ mouser)

Flexible 12 awg wire/cord is called "SO" wire or SOOW, SOEW, etc (about $4)

PUSH BUTTON CIRCUIT BREAKER 30A was purchased off($5)

Plastic outlet box/cover is from my local home improvement center.(about $1)

Wire 3 HONDA generators together:
I assume you want to use this for your motorhome or trailer. You wire it the exact same way I did in the video, but use 3 sets of wires instead of 2 into the circuit breaker. Then from the circuit breaker you take a 2 lines off, one to each opposing side of the 50amp RV 120/240 plug. BUT this is not 240v compatible. This is strictly 50amps of 120V power. So if your plugging your RV into it you CAN NOT run appliances that use 240V like a dryer. You can run all your 120v appliances like dual AC units, fridge, tv's, microwave etc. On the 50 amp RV plug, the round is ground(green/bare), opposite that is the neutral(green) and the other two that are opposite each other share the 120v load(blacks)
