In this video, I demo and then install a Go Power! TS-30 transfer switch into my 2011 Keystone Cougar fifth-wheel trailer. I’m using the transfer switch to automatically and safely transfer input power between my Safari ME portable power station’s 2000W inverter output and the 30 amp shore power when I plugin at a campground.
By having my inverter output connected directly to the RV 30 amp input, I will be able to use all the AC outlets and appliances when dry camping and run my fridge off AC power instead of propane when towing.
Installation was quite straightforward since Go Power had included Wago lever nuts inside the plastic enclosure for easy hookup. I located space directly behind my RV power panel to mount the transfer switch.
It was a perfect location to hook the 30 amp RV input into and out of the transfer switch to the breaker panel. I found a suitable path out of sight to run the inverter output cord and connected it up. Everything works great.
