This is from Progressive Industries' FAQ page:

"Q: Should a Hardwired EMS be installed before or after the transfer switch?
A: A hardwired EMS should be installed prior to the transfer switch. The reason for this is most RV generators already have built-in voltage and frequency protection. If the EMS is installed after the transfer switch, this leaves the transfer switch vulnerable to power problems."

Installed the HW30C today, also put in transfer switch and converter both Go Power products while I had the panel out. Installed the EMS before the switch. Everything went in easy and worked as it should. Gotta love youtube videos. Research and send the wife and kids shopping when you get started will help a lot. Got a couple of flexible solar panels up next. Going to use VHB tape.

When I did the install. I decided on the mounting location and then cut the power cord. That way there is no need to buy a small section of wire or trace the existing wire. Plus there is one less connection to be made. It took about 45 minutes.

I did the same although it took me longer than 45 minutes because I'm OLD. It took me about 8 minutes to get up off the floor each of the 16 times I had to go get another tool, etc.

Good point Mr. Dan. Fortunately I didn't send DW shopping like ezitin suggested. Therefore I didn't have to get up as often.

I made the mistake of putting mine in during high winds. The hatch door kept swinging around and smacking me in the head! Didn't do much damage, I kill enough brain cells on my own! 😀
