Product Overview

This outdoor, 10-circuit, 30 Amp manual transfer switch is designed for fast installation at a home, office or small business. It is completely pre-wired and enables the electrical system of the building to accept the power of a portable generator to run up to ten single-pole circuits, and any pair of single-pole circuits can be used as a double-pole circuit. It allows you to power electrical appliances, devices and lighting during a power outage. This transfer switch is completely code compliant and keeps the generator power isolated from the utility power at all times. Circuit breakers are 1 in. interchangeable and can be changed to different sizes and brands that are compatible and within the maximum circuit size ratings.

Yes, you can use this transfer switch with a 12000 watt generator if you connect to the 30 amp NEMA L14-30 receptacle on that generator. The 30 amp receptacle will have a circuit breaker that provides over current protection.

Answer

This will be easy to do. You can disconnect the L1430F inside the transfer switch and connect to the remote power inlet box with conduit through any one of the knockouts in the transfer switch cabinet. You will probably want to leave the disconnected L1430F in place to fill the opening in the bottom of the cabinet.

Do I need a 3 prong or 4 prong power cord?

Asked by James June 3, 2020

Answer

Connecting a generator to this Transfer Switch, you'll need a 4-conductor cord/4-prong plug: Line 1, Line 2, Neutral, Ground. That provides 240 Volts L1 to L2, and 120 Volts L1 or L2 to Neutral. Since this Transfer Switch does not switch Neutral, make sure your generator does not bond Neutral to Ground inside it. It probably does. The bond between Neutral and Ground in the generator must be removed to safely use a generator connected to this Transfer Switch.

I believe that generator would work very well with this transfer switch. Any generator that provides L1, L2, N, and GND conductors would. The fact your generator is 9200 Watts and this transfer switch is rated at 7500 Watts causes no trouble, as long as you abide by the transfer switch's circuit breaker limitations and don't try to swap them out with breakers larger than Reliance Controls specifies for this transfer switch. Warning: if your Champion 9200 generator bonds Neutral to Ground, verify with a licensed electrician that the bond must must be removed before connecting it to the transfer switch, since this transfer switch does not switch Neutral. Home Depot can help get you that answer.

You can but there are no knockouts on the rt side of the switch. If you are short on wire to the service panel you will need to install a junction box. Be sure you pair and label your extension wires correctly .

Verify you have 240 output at the recep on your generator. More often than not the 3 prong on your gen is 120 volt 30 amp. They typicaly are stated as being rv ready. The 4 prong consists of two 120 volt lines one common and one ground.

What i found with this switch is that all of the single pole circuits are wired with awg 12 . That will sustain a 20 amp load. The 240 volt circuits are wired with awg 10 which will sustain a 30 amp load. So yes you can change the 15 amp breakers to 20 amp breakers.

High quality, works well, solid construction, good instructions. Great to have the L1430 male connector build into the bottom behind a weather cover. Would be 5 stars except for the fact that you have to yank pretty hard to open the cover.

The transfer switch arrived at the store on time. It is a quality product and is just as described on the website. We mounted the switch outside adjacent to the main breaker box and connected the wiring according to instructions. It was a simple installation as the instructions are easy to follow. We tested the switch with our generator, and everything worked perfectly!

My main breaker box is outside, so I had to buy an outdoor transfer switch. I chose Reliance, since I believe that they are really professional and customer friendly. The transfer switch was pre-wired, so all I had to do was, install it on the brick wall, connect it to the breaker box through a supplied water tight flexible conduit. There were twenty 12 gauge stranded wires for the 10 circuits and one each 10 gauge wire for Neutral and Ground. It was a little too tight for the 22 wire to go though the 1 inch pipe. Other than that, everything went fine.Wiring to the breaker box was the easiest part, just under 30 minutes. It was very easy to install. I disconnected the handle ties for the two 240 volt circuits and used them for furnace fan, kitchen, microwave / vent hood and cloth washer. I did a test run using my 7000 running watt generator connected to the house using the transfer switch, and I was very happy and very satisfied. I can run the whole house, except the dish washer and central AC. Even if the AC does not work, all the fans and light will work. I am also happy since in winter, the heater will work, because it runs on Natural gas,and I have connected the furnace fan. Another good feature of this transfer switch was that it had a pre-wired L 14- 30 connector to connect the generator to the transfer switch with 30 amp generator power cord. It is weather proof too!

I accidently purchased the exact kit for a covered location. It came with conduit covered wires, wire nuts, conduit mounts, installation DVD, power cord, and an external power input plug. (Nice rig) I then saw this switch set which is an outside mount (comes with a sqare D cover box) for roughly $100.00 more dollars. I sent the first back and ordered this one. What a let down! what you see is what you get. I take that back they don't show the unreadable instructions, and the uncovered wire clusters hanging out the bottom of the unit. They also don't send a power cord, wire nuts, optional external plug, or an instructional DVD. Buy the cheaper one and pay for some caulk and a square D box. You will get much more for your money.

Good quality product. Plenty of wire length for close hook up to your main panel. The cable access is through the bottom which can be awkward to get to but we had limited space so it was fine. I just keep the cable attached.
