home emergency generator

Hi, I have read most of the threads about connecting an emergency generator. My question is how do I check if my Wen Power generator neutral is floating or bonded? My transfer switch calls for a floating neutral. I called the customer help line with no luck. Thanks

With the generator off, use an ohmmeter or multimeter to check for continuity between the ground pin and neutral pin of the generator receptacle. No continuity = floating; continuity = bonded.
