I thought to myself..."what a PITA", always manually plugging and unplugging everytime the generator or shore power was needed.

But that's how it used to be for all RV's.



Old technology, but Proven technology!


Actually, you donít need to plug in the generator to use it. Itís just wired to a 30A receptacle in your electric compartment. You just keep your power cord plugged into it when itís not in a shore power outlet. I.e. thatís itís default position when traveling. Itís a stone simple set up and I actually like it better than an ATS.

Yup, all you are doing when storing the shore cord is for the final step to plug it into the generator outlet, not much of a "PITA". My concern is you have to make sure the cable is not wound too tight together. You have to lay it out loose or separate in some way and not coiled tightly.
