Default purchased generator, suggestions for well pump hook up

I purchased this generator ( $400 ) and it's scheduled for delivery on Tuesday


I plan on having it on the back side of the house, right outside this wall with the well pump electric hook up. There are two full size freezers in this basement room too which will simply plug into the 120VAC outlets on the generator.



Maybe twist lock plug before the box for the well pump? Ideas?

I will have a certified electrician look at my hook up before actual use to avoid this scenario

Only thing I know about electricity is you can't see it, it'll shock you, and don't fvck with it.
Sorry
