Am I looking for a unicorn?

My 11000w generator came up missing out of our shed. Fortunately, I had an older 6500w genny in our garage. Until I can replace the larger genny, I need to be able to connect the smaller genny to our 50amp inlet circuit for emergency backup power to our house.

The power inlet box has a 50amp C6365 connector. While the smaller genny has a 30amp twist lock connector. Is there an adapter where I can use the 50amp cord from the house to an adapter that plugs into the smaller genny????

I've been looking online, but either that adapter doesn't exist or I'm as blind as a bat. Thanks!

Is the smaller generator 30 amp twist lock also a 125/250 volt, or just 125 volt?

You might have to make up your own adapter.
