Those videos showed cutting the 30 amp cable coming from the pedestal, pealing back the wires on each end and connecting to the protector. Interesting that Forestriver is able to use the same W floor plan unit with the MBS 2400W and the Ford 2431. Again thanks.
Hope that box your talking about isn't the transfer switch cause you need to keep that. The only reason I even knew where the transfer switch was located is because I was looking for a non-existent sub-woofer.
I suppose it is possible that there is a junction box in there but i am not sure. It appeared to me as though there were three sets of wires going into the "black" box" one from the shore power, one from the generator, and one going to the main distribution panel. If the Sunseeker and the GTS are indeed the same, your shore power enters the cabin inside the little nightstand at the back of the bed, then it goes through the floor, along the frame, and then back up through the floor and into the transfer switch.
Research, test, double check twice, then label before cutting or disconnecting anything. Take lots of pictures, makes remembering how things go back together much easier.
good luck with your install, hope everything goes well, and enjoy your RV, we really enjoy ours.
BTW. that floor plan is used on the Dynamax Isata 3 and the Forest River Forester also.
