Power Inlet Box for Generator

I purchased a Reliance Transfer Kit that includes a power inlet box (model PB30) that I plan to mount on an exterior wall. Does the code require conduit going through the wall into the box? I am using 10/3 wire for the connection from the box to the switch. Please recommend the best technique for this installation.

Will any of the wiring be exposed outside before it gets into the box?

Nothing will be exposed - I plan to run the wire through the wall driectly into a knockout in the back of the box. although the box will be mounted on the siding (it is surface mount not recessed)

Cable would be fine if the local code does not modify the US NEC rules. Remember to caulk the top and sides of the inlet box but do not caulk the bottom.
