6500 Honda eu

I have a 6500 Honda and the guy that sold it to me hooked me up with an adapter but I'm only getting 22 amps anybody know how to get 50? They told me that this gen would give me full 50 amp service.

factory manual

You can download the factory manual at this website:
Honda EU6500is Generator
I assume you purchased this gen used without the manual.

Nope I bought it new and with the manual, but originally I'm from Alabama. The load sharing switch flipping and balancing all went a bit over my head.

The EU6500is will provide up to 45.8 amps at 120 volts, but it's spread out among the various receptacles. You can't get a full 45.8 amps out of a single receptacle.

First, assume you only need to power 120 volt devices. Keep the Voltage Selector Switch in the 120V ONLY position. This routes the maximum amount of current to three receptacles (1,2,3). #4 is usually only used when you need to make 240 volts.

Next, determine the power required for each device. Let's say you have an air conditioner that requires 25 amps to start; you'd want to plug it into receptacle #1, since it can deliver up to 30 amps. You would NOT want to plug it into receptacle #3, since it only makes 20 amps.
