A portable generator, even when equipped with electric start, will not work with an automatic switch. You can use a manual transfer switch but as you have discovered, the generator's GFCI causes problems. Disabling it is not recommended.

generator neutral- ground bond.

Thanks for your reply Canuck Roy. generator is a permanent stand by generator with it's own in house remote start transfer switch with 2 duplex receptacles.gfi type. connecting these to the UTS-6 trips the gfi's because of the bond issue. manufacture said it needed to be open.

O.K. I assumed it is a portable because of the output, standbys are usually much larger.
