120v generator to 240v transfer switch

I currently have a Champion 3400w RV generator and want to pair it with a 310CRK switch to power two rooms in my house. I know the switch overkill but I'll probably end up utilizing it more with a bigger generator in the future.
Since my generator doesn't have a 240 outlet and only has a RV 120v 30A TT-30R. Can I just buy this adapter and connect the generator to the switch to power a few 15-20amp breakers?
They are mostly lights and a refrigerator but usage wouldn't go over 3,100 watts.
FYI - the two hots on the L14-30R are being jumped from one hot 120v.

Welcome to the forums.

That cord will do what you want.
Make sure all 240v loads are shut off when using that adapter.

Does it matter if 240v breakers are on since I have a transfer switch?
It shouldn't be pushing power back to the panel, only the breaker it is connected it, correct?

Yes..... only the breakers in that transfer panel will be energized.
