Answer: 
Maximum running wattage for this switch is 7,500. Your 8,000 watts starting power is surge power which is the maximum wattage available for short periods of time. Think in terms of starting a motor, it requires more wattage to start but will decline to its normal running wattage.

Answer: 
You can use 10-3 NM-B cable with ground. This will support 30A service for most reasonable lengths, ( includes the two hot wires, neutral and ground ). Home Depot carries spools of various lengths. Depending on the installation location, you may need to put the cable in PVC pipe for mechanical projection.

Answer: 
We recomment 10 guage (#10 AWG) wire for connection of the power inlet box to the transfer switch. In most cases 10-3 building wire (3 wires plus ground) will work great.

Yes, you have to shut if off if. Otherwise you would increase the risk of electrocuting yourself. There is still some risk with the main breaker shutoff (IE. main feed wire coming in from the street and bar inside the Main Fuse Box.

Answer: 
No, you do not need to shut off the main breaker in your service panel when you are using your generator with this transfer switch. The transfer switch will keep the utility power and the generator power separated. The nice thing about leaving the main breaker on is that you will know when the utility power is back because the other circuits in your home will turn back on when the power is restored.

Could this handle loads for my well pump(two 20 amp switches)and electric hot water heater(has two 25amp switches)?

This question is from 30 Amp 10 Circuit Manual Transfer Switch Kit
Asked by
Sean
December 17, 2012
I see this will handle the 8000w generator but my concern is the hot water heater with it's two 25 amp switches. 50 amps just for the hot water is a lot and it looks like this transfer switch only offers the 2 double 20amp. My well pump will take 40amps and the remaining 40 amps is just not enough for the hot water heater. Should I return this transfer switch and get a larger reliance transfer switch? Do you have 25 amp switches i could swap with the double 20 amps?

I did not realize that I could not connect my hot water to the switch until it was installed, I do have my well pump connected and works fine. You WILL need to upgrade to have both, huge mistake on my part, if I remember correctly it was only like $50 more to have the dual 30 amp breaker instead of the 2-20 amp breakers

Answer: 
20 amps is the largest household circuit that this transfer can be used with. It cannot be used on your 25 amp water heater circuit. The Reliance Controls model Q310C, internet no. 202216478, would accomodate your water heater. It allows one double pole circuit up to 30 amps.

Buy a transfer switch that has interchangable breakers like the model number 301060 gentran 30 amp 7500 watt indoor manual transfer switch. you can take the breakers out and replace with higher amp breakers , as long as your generator can handle the load.

Answer: 
From the manual online
Transfer switch circuits with 20 amp breakers (the ones with the red
caps) must be installed on only those branch circuits with 20 amp branch circuit
breakers. Transfer switch circuits with 15 amp breakers can be installed on 15
or 20 amp branch circuits. Do not install any transfer switch circuit on
branch circuits greater than 20 amps.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not everything you need in the box I spent an afternoon installing this unit. NOT included are the materials for wiring the input plug to the transfer switch. Also, there is no plug included for the space on the switch box for direct plug-in to the generator. So you have to decide where to locate the power-in plug box, and get the wires and conduit to go between the plug and the transfer switch. (10 gauge building wire minimum) This was not evident from reading the spec's and description on the Home Depot website. Unit appears to be of better quality than the crummy Generac unit I replaced (fried switch on one circuit). February 5, 2016
