100 Amp Sub-panel hook up?

I have a master panel outside of my house. It has a 100 Amp breaker that feeds a sub-panel inside of my home with only 110v branch circuits. Can I hook this switch to the sub-panel? I'm thinking as if I lose power, I can lock-out the main breaker on the Main Service panel then feed the generator into the sub-panel from and outside inlet box.
Asked by: Sethlic
You can install this switch between the main panel and the 100 amp sub panel. When the power goes out you will then be able to power the sub panel (but not the main panel) with the generator. You won't even need to lock out the main breaker, the transfer switch will keep the two sources of power safely separated for you.

Connection question

I assume that the 100 amp line from the streeet connects to this and then the generator needs to connect to it as well. At that pont, the generator is feeding power to the entire electrical panel. is that correct? How does the generator connect to this switch - special cable, etc ?
Asked by: Mike
Yes, your generator will be suppling to the whole panel. You will need the right size wire to hook up the generator to the panel. I only needed to use a #12 wire for my needs.

do you have this transfer switch in weatherproof

Asked by: rocky
The panel is not weather proof! needs to be in a building or covered shed not exposed to the weather.

What size wire should be used using the 50 amp circuit on the generator?

Asked by: Anonymous
you can go with a #10 easy. but #12 will work. I'm using a #12 for my transfer box and powering lights/ plugs/ small water heater and ice box. but if your not sure what you need just go with a #10 and you will be good to go.

100 Amp Utility / Generator Transfer Switch is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Who Designed this Thing? Why would you design a transfer box that is NOT 2.o entry wire friendly? Perhaps you can get 2.o wire into the grounding bar, but I defy anyone to add 2.o wire into the switch itself! Why design this switch to require a sharp 90 degree bend to route the entry wire into your transfer switch. You know that the feeder wire will be a heavier gauge. Why not place the transfer switch directly in line with the knockout? Assuming that the wire ports are , in fact, big enough for your entry wire....... Come on, Reliant, let's do some designing for reality!

The transfer switch was just what we needed to power home when electricity goes out. After getting it installed by an electrician, the switch worked very well from utility power to generator power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generator transfer switch 100 amp The product met my specification. Two transfer switches where installed in front of two loadcenters. As a electrician the installation was very basic. Installed a fixed male type plug below each transfer switch for the 4-wire 30amp cord from the generator. The transfer switches work great for residential type installations. Above item used for a mountain cabin where general utility power at times are off line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product. Incomplete Specs. The main side is 100A. The generator side is only 60A. Not a big deal unless you are running a 12KW+ generator. Otherwise the product is quite well made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from as advertised there was a ground bar but no neutral bar inside the box. Had to contact Reliance and they were super about it and sent one to my home free of charge ASAP. It works
