Guy, I think that you've got it right. My comments are based upon what I read in the Generac manual not the Honda book. From your delayed transfer switch I think the startup is o.k. but I'm still not certain that shuting down under load is what I will do.
My experience with the 40 Generac was that it behaved poorly when shut down under load. So following their instructions I always let the unit relax without the A/C on as I got my gear together to leave the coach, then hit the kill switch. I also liked to shut down the computers and LCD panel from the switches so they come on when I want them to rather than when the genset come up or I plugged in. Sort of the same as throwing the breaker on the campsite 30 amp before plugging in.... just in case.

O.K. so here's the end of the Honda 6010 install for DonMar RV. It seems to me that all they hear when I speak is "blah, blah blah, blah blah." After getting it back and only being wired from the 30 amp breaker I call and ask why? The answer is, "Why do you need 50 amp service?"
I don't NEED 50 amp service but the unit was designed to serve the A/C with it's own 20 amp breaker and I feel this allows the rest of the coach to be served by the 30 amp side. I run a bunch of stuff all the time!
I had them add a new 20 amp GFCI on the road side for my computer strip and now I'm wondering if I can accomplish what I set out to do.
I'm not even close to being an electrician. They're trying to tell me that they will have to redo the distribution panel to accomodate my new install.... well Dah??!!
Of course I was not thrilled by the level of completion that the welder gave me on the closing in of the unit so I'm working to enclose the box and still leave some breathing room for it from the front per the Honda install diagrams. Those diagrams had been given to the dealer but who knows if they gave them to the welder.
The bottom line is that I don't have any more time to let these folks keep me off the road, I've got to make a living!
So for now....stick a fork in me I'm done.

Good onfo...
I may try to get my Onan 6500 back in shape.
Sounds like the Honda is not much quiter and would be going down on watts by 500 (6010 vs 6500)
The water cooling sounds like the best thing it has going for it.
