Generator Output Hookup

Sorry if this has been asked before. I searched the forums but couldn't find an answer. I have a 2014 XLR 27HFS with a pre-wired generator compartment and just purchased an Onan 4000W KY generator. I've read both manuals and neither even hint where the power output cables hook up to supply power to the camper. The rest of the connections seem very straightforward.

I've attached some pictures of where I think it might connect, but don't want to get this wrong. These were taken from underneath within a few feet of the generator compartment directly behind the A-frame holding the battery. Is this where I connect the cables, do I need to install a 'transfer switch' somewhere, or are the connections inside the camper?

Thanks in advance for any helpful hints.
- Dave

Got a reply on another forum not to use these because they are for DC not AC. But my original questions remains... where do the wires supplying power from the generator to the camper connect?

Not sure but I suspect the wiring to the converter my be in the space under the bed. I would look there if no wiring or junction box is present in the generator compartment.

I looked in my generator compartment and the wiring on my factory installed generator runs through the back and into the area under the bed.

Great tip, I'll yank the mattress off and look under there. Thanks Kaboom!

You da man, Kaboom. Took the mattress off, lifter the plywood and SNAP. A prewired transfer control box with an electrical box off the side. Just a couple of wire nuts and I'm in business. Thanks again!

Glad it worked out. I would have lifted mine and looked, but the one thing my DW complains about most is making the bed. Since we are spending the day getting everything ready to attend the California rally next weekend. I know she just put new sheets on and I could hear it now if she walked in and I had the bed tore apart.
