Default Onan 3 wire to 4 wire Transfer Switch Recepticle

I have an Onan genset 5.0 with three wires coming from it. One black hot white netural and green gnd. I have a powermate six breaker transfer switch with a four wire plug. Red hot Black Hot green Gnd. white Netural I want to connect this onan to my two service panel connections. Can I take the Black Hot from the Onan and "Y" it off with two 6gauge wires wire nutted together making it one hot from the onan to two wires 120v each from the same onan hot wire to connect to my service panel lugs as long as I disconnect the MAIN breaker to give me 120V. The transfer switch is set up for red wire three breakers and the other three Black wire.
