Generator - 30 Amp run to Transfer Switch


I'm installing a manual transfer switch for a portable 8kW generator. The input receptacle will be about 70-80 feet from the transfer switch.

Can I run 10/3 or should I jump up to 8/3 given the length. I seem to recall under 100' is acceptable but over 100' voltage drop can be an issue.

Yes, under 100' is acceptable.
