Generator power cord 20-30 amp

Im in the process of hooking up a inlet box to my house to plug my generator into. The plug on my generator is a l14-20 plug. I just bought a 25í l14-20 cord. My inlet box is a l14-30 plug. Itís a long story why itís a l14-30 and not a 20 but anyway thatís what Iím working with so I bought a male l14-30 end to put on the end of my generator cord so it will plug into the inlet box. Can I cut off the existing l14-20 end and put on the l14-30 end or should I just get some sort of jumper ? I already have all of the parts but now Iím questioning everything

Yes..... you can do that because that cable is protected by the circuit breaker on the generator.
You would need a female L14-30 cap.
