How Does Go Power Automatic Transfer Switch # 34270278 Connect to Shore Power and Inverter

Question:

My previous invertor was a xantrex where the a/c power attached via a clip to the GFCI outlet. The system would charge my batteries via shore power or my generator. Could I put a plug on my a/c wires and plug into the GP 2000? If I used the transfer switch, would that plug into my invertor? Where / what does the female plug work? Where would I connect my a/c from my fuse box? What could / would I use the shore power knock out for.

The Go Power Automatic Transfer Switch # 34270278 that you are interested in was designed to automatically switch power sources between an inverter or an AC power source. You'd want to run the inverter you have now to this as well as the power source wiring from shore power and this would automatically take care of your AC power needs/switching. Basically your battery would connect to the inverter, the inverter to the # 34270278 and then the # 34270278 to your fuse panel. This does not use any connectors though and requires running wires to the terminals.

Question:

I do not have 50 amp service. How would it work?

Expert Reply:

Sounds like you have 30 amp service instead. We have a transfer switch designed for that with the # 342GPTS that has cables built into it or the # 34264403 which would hardwire like the other one mentioned.
