This review is from: Reliance Controls Corporation 31406CRK 30 Amp 6-circuit Pro/Tran Transfer Switch Kit for Generators (7500 Watts). (Lawn & Patio) The transfer box was a piece of cake to install. The video really speaks for it’s self. My dad was a union electrician and I gofered for him growing up so I do have some pretty good experience. But I am telling you even a cave man can install the transfer box. I installed the outlet on the outside of my house and pulling off and cutting the vinyl siding and installing the vinyl box was the bitchiest part of the job. That and running the wire to the main panel/transfer switch. Make sure you run enough wire into the outlet box because the 10 gauge wire is tough to bend and push into the box AND make room for the back of the plug. Wiring the 10-3 cable into the transfer switch is nothing more than wiring a simple outlet. Again, the video is self exploratory. I threw up a piece of plywood next to my main box to put the transfer box on as you can see in the picture. It was then easy to line up the transfer switch to the main box. I had my son help me as a couple of extra hands and eyes are needed. I had him check each wire I installed and needed him to read the letters on the wires. Even with reading glasses it is hard to see! Plus an extra flashlight really helps out. Obviously make sure you switch off the main and remember that there is still live power up at the top of the panel. If you are using breakers up top be extra careful. The transfer switch took me less than an hour to install. The outlet box and running the wire took close to 3 hours. It was about a 35 foot run to the switch. You may want to install the outlet box first and do the hook up on another day. Make sure your silicone around the box if it is outside. Also, when you are done wiring the transfer switch, use some wire ties to clean up the installation. It will impress your friends! After installation, keep the main off and make sure the switches on the transfer box are all the way down in the off line position. Go plug in the cable to your generator and outlet, start the generator and let it run for around 5 minutes. Then go and flick the switches on the transfer box one at a time to the Gen position and SLOWLY. Best to do switch 1 and 4, 2 and 5, 3 and 6 in this order This will balance the load. Go check everything and make sure they have power. When done, turn off the generator, unplug and then go turn off the switches. Then turn back on the main.
