dave961, do you have a link to where you bought the plugs for $15 each?

Thanks, Dave. Unfortunately, they don't ship up here to Canada.

I did find these 2 but I'm concerned they're made in China and Amazon wants $32 to ship them here.

itat, I see your in the GTA. If you happen to be in the area of either Niagara Falls or Gananoque during your travels, you could use www.kinek.com, to have items shipped to you for a very low fee. I just picked up a propane hose yesterday, $105 shipped to me in Kingston, instead I paid $50 to pick it up on Wellesley Island and an additional $5 Kinek fee.

I hard wired my Progressive 30 with readout. Space is tight in my FR3 25DS and removing it and bypassing would be easy. It popped off as soon as I turned the generator on and the readout showed me that the positive and ground were switched at the factory. I had used the generator before that and everything worked OK, but better to do it right.
Interesting that inside the receptacle the only terminal that was labelled was the middle one which is obvious. The tech at the factory has a black and a white wire and two terminals and they must just attach them at random.

Basically, you put a male 30a coupler on one side and a female on the other. then put another set in the power line leading to your converter. Luckily, my toy hauler came with a transfer switch, which made it easy.
Just a question.

The third picture from the top, what kind of tape did you use to cover the black and white leads?

Wire nuts, then duct tape the wire nuts to the wires to keep them from vibrating off.
