Does Using PD52 Require Additional Transfer Switch When Adding Inverter


Hello I have a 2022 Cyclone 3413 that is equipped with the Progressive dynamics PD52 that is wired to the shore and generator. I want to add an inverter so we can run the outlets off the inverter. Do I need to add a second transfer switch and wire the existing transfer switch output to the input to a new second transfer switch and then add the inverter input new second transfer switch? Thanks


Expert Reply:

The PD1600 series contains an internal transfer switch. We do not recommend feeding the output of the inverter back to the MAIN AC distribution panel due to the fact that a fully operational panel would quickly drain the battery and the converter/charger must be isolated from the inverter when the inverter is operating.
We recommend feeding the inverter AC IN from the main panel and feeding the AC OUT to a sub panel for multiple branch circuits or directly to a single branch circuit.
