A Switch Box Perfect For My Needs!
I have a raised ranch with a 100 Amp Service. My generator is a 7500 watt Generac electric start generator. I no longer need to use a network of extension cords which didn't include my well or furnace. The switch box was easy to install and essentially enables my whole house. Not including the central air conditioner, electric range or electric dryer. I use the dead circuit in my laundry room to plug in an alarm to alert me when the electricity has been restored. The only time the... more

"The first switch box I bought was a bad choice for my application. Some time had past between the time of my purchase and when I got around to installing it. I had not even attempted to install it. It was brand new in the box. I was told I could not return it. All I wanted to do was exchange it for the Reliance. I was told twice that they would not accept the return. Finally I got a reasonable customer service representative. I then was able to order the reliant and sent the other back. In the end it all worked out. The silly dance was unfortunate."

The Finished Job!
I put this switch in a month ago & tested it out. I actually lost power when this freak October 29 noreaster hit and it worked with no problems. I was able to use all the circuits I wired to it and I could choose to turn off some as needed. I can configure the box for summer (air condition, pool, etc) or winter ( no air conditioner, pool) and use those circuits for other needed uses. I took a picture of both the panel and the transfer box (printed them both and placed by the panel) and... more

Can't Wait Until The Next Blackout!
The days of running extension cords through out the house during blackouts are over.

Tim, my electrician, recommended and installed this power transfer switch which is simple to use and works great.

Great Trans Switch... Check Your Wiring In Your Home!
I installed this in a rental home after dealing with no power for 4 days last year. If you understand electrical equipment this is a very straight forward installation. When doing my prelim load calculations with the existing breakers I was amazed. One, at just how crappy some people consider the work they do acceptable. And two, just how unsafe people who don't know what they are doing can be.

An example. My kitchen has all the lights, outlets, microwave, gas stove, dishwasher and refrig... more

I received the transfer kit 1st because the generator I ordered was on back order. surprisingly it came in its own box not wrapped or packed. it looked like it went through the mill. i called up to question the condition and they said that sounds about right , the factory sends it out like that .

I'm a licensed electrician in the New York area, with many customers tired of loosing power. The transfer switches I purchase are the perfect fit for their generators. The ease of installing and training the customers on these units practically sell themselves. Great product, Thank you.

Disaster
I will start from the beginning. After Sandy in Oct. 2012 I felt it was time to buy a generator of significant and have a transfer switch installed by a licensed electrician. So I went ahead and purchased the B&S 10,000 watt Elite generator and was told it was on back order and won't be available until Dec. 2012. Then in the middle of Dec. I was informed by EGD that it was still in backorder and will be available in Jan. 2013. So no problem, I waited patiently and it was delivered as... more

Insanely Easy To Install And Use
You can't beat the feeling of knowing that in the next power outage, you will be covered. BUT more than that, this switch is so easy and quick to install, anyone that can watch and understand a video can do it. I love the fact that I can bring on one circuit at a time when switching over to the generator.

Everything except the wire/conduit from the outside plug to the switch is included. Now if I only had a generator and switch that could power my geo thermal furnace.....

After having lost power for about 5 hrs during the derecho of June 2012 and then loosing power for 2 days during Sandy in October of 2012, the wife finally said she didn't want to go through that again and gave me the go ahead to get what I needed to keep our house powered.In researching for a transfer switch, I wanted something that would not only be able to handle the circuits I wanted to use, but maximize the wattage of my generator.

Easy To Connect To Electric Generator
My mom & I both have the same generator, but she needed this transfer kit for hers, I'm changing the set on mine soon & will order one for myself. The electrician was able to install her transfer kit no problem & showed her how to use it. They did a test run on the entire house works perfect. Now I don't have to worry if her power goes out.

The Reliance Controls 10 Circuit Transfer switch was very easy to install. Reliance Website has detailed videos to watch so you can see the entire process before you start. I am not powering any 240v circuits so I took the connecting bar off the two 20 amp double pole switches. Also I only need two, 20 amp circuits. I called Reliance and asked about replacing the two other 20 amp breakers with 15 amp breakers as not to over power my house circuits rated at 15 Amps. They 2nd day FedEx'd me 2 -... more

Great Product
Let me start by saying this product would be a 5 star except for one SMALL problem.The problem being the size of the letters on the wires. Once I got a magnifying glass and some extra light I was able to pair the red and black wires. The rest of the installation was a breeze up and running in about an hour and a half. Killed the main fired up the generator and the switch worked perfectly.

Changing Climate
Over the past several years, I have noticed more frequent storms and related power outages here in New Hampshire. So, I finally gave in and purchased the Briggs and Stratton 30471 (after much research) and the Reliance 10 circut 30 amp transfer switch. Received last week. The R&L Carrier delivery guy was most helpful. I was not too crazy about the $50.00 lift gate charge as an add on but what the heck. The driver wheeled it right into my garage. We noticed a tear in the box and the driver... more

Easy to install. Comes with video and easy to follow instructions. All wires are clearly marked. Everything you need is in the box. A few hrs and your up and running. I used to back feed just enough for the sump pump and fridge. Now I can run everything I need with a few flips of the switches.

Disaster Recovery Planning
The 10 circuits are perfect for the 8000 Watt Generac Generator that I'll be using.

Reliance Controls, 31410CRK, is a very good transfer switch.

I particularly liked the wattage meter that shows you the load on each side of the switch.

You can and should load balance the watts and the meter shows you the load as your generator is running and as you continue to turn on different appliances.

I was amazed that I could run my furnace, sump pump, Fridge, 2 home offices with 2 computers... more

Good And Bad Experience - Happy At The End
I ordered in mid-December and got delivery in late January. When an electrician came to make sure that I had everything, he noticed that two switches in the transfer switch were broken - one black button and one red button were laying in the box. So I returned it and they shipped me one in a card box box. The previous receipt was in original colorful box. So, I suspected that they simply put the black and red button on the shaft and sent back. Upon calling they assured me that it was a brand... more

Good Customer Service From Reliance
I had an electrician install the transfer panel in my Northern Virginia home about 3 1/2 years ago. We live in a heavily wooded area and storms tend to bring the trees and power lines down 2 - 3 times a year.

Over the Fourth of July we were without street power for 5 days with temperatures near 100 degrees. The transfer panel has worked great. Paired with an 8,000 watt generator, I have enough power for 2 refrigerators, the well pump, the tankless water heater, lights throughout the... more

I shopped a lot before I purchased the transfer switch kit, I priced many suppliers and weighed many options before I settled on this kit. I felt it was the most bang for my buck.

The transfer was very easy to install and was delivered in excellent condition. I did a test of my generator and transfer this past weekend and it worked perfectly. Now I know the next time I have an outage I am prepared.

Couldn't Be Happier
After 5" of water from the Aug 2012 storms, I rode out Hurricane Sandy with no problems. I can't tell you how nice it is to use one simple plug from the generator to the house and everyhing lights up. So easy and no need for the expensive $10k/perm gas-generator solutions. This switch makes it easy to have control during a storm w/o spending a fortune.

Best Bang For The Buck In Emergencies
I purchased this generator for emergency residential use. I connect it through a 30 amp 10 circuit Reliance manual transfer switch.

The generator powers almost all of my 3000 sq. ft. house except for the AC, ovens and dryer. I used it once for 10 straight days and it ran flawlessly.

Typically I would fill the gas tank up in the morning when I woke up and at night before we went to sleep, so I probably averaged 12 hour actual run times.

Just What We Needed
I think it takes more knowledge to buy the transfer switch compared to the generator and I wish I had learned more before buying. As it turned out, we got exactly what we needed, but along the way I had many doubts about the number of circuits and circuit ratings.

We ended up using only one 240v and split the other into two 120v circuits. I wonder if 12 or 14 circuits would have been preferable. We couldn't keep them open all the time but we could make more areas of the house usable at... more

Relience Power Transfer Kit
As an Electrical Contractor I have been using this panel for portable generator customers for many years. The value of the Reliance power transfer kit saved me approximately $100.

Over purchasing the components separately. A savings which I am able to pass along to my customers. An excellent product and value for the money.

Some Easy Some What The Heck Directions.
Control panel installed in just over one hour by licensed electrician.
Wheel and handles for generator took about ten minutes total. Attaching battery cables OVER ONE HOUR.
Directions are useless AND in order to replace battery holding bracket the battery has to be the OPPOSITE of what is in the direction picture!!!!
Do not think any writer or designer tried to attach the cables!!
Generator did start right up when ready, somewhat quiet.
Company was fine in updating delay notices . more

Works Fine
This product was very easy to install. It is well made.

I have tested it and it works fine. As to actually using it, that will have to wait on the next power failure.

No Problems
I installed 31410CRK in about an hour. Instructions are simple and installation went without a problem.

One of the watt meters was stuck at 500, so I called Reliance and they said that sometimes happens in shipping and sent one out immediately.

Powering Up
After two storms last winter and having to drag cords all over the house, I invested in a transfer switch that requires only a cord from my generator to the outside wall plug and the house is back ready to go.

That went so well that I bought a second unit and had it installed at my brother's house. We are both happy that it worked out so well.

Thanks for the great service.

Best Purchase We've Ever Made
We purchased this generator from PED after Hurricane Irene last year and had the transfer switch installed by a licensed electrician. Our power went out this year as soon as Sandy started blowing in. The generator started on the first turn of the key in the ignition, and ran 290.6 hours straight 24/7 without a hiccup through both the hurricane and the nor'easter a week later.

It burned a surprisingly small amount of oil (Royal Purple Synthetic) and ran about 12 hours on a tank. I can't... more

You Can Diy
After two $1,400 quotes to install a $400 10-circuit transfer switch, I decided to tackle the job myself. Most of the work involved A) mapping my service box so I could decide which 10 switches were the most important to back up (electricians seldom label the work they've done, and when they do it's usually with something helpful like "lights") and B) mounting the exterior inlet box, which involved purchasing 10-gauge Romex and punching a 1" hole through to the exterior.

First Portable Generator
After living through several hurricane close calls over the past 5 years in Florida, I finally decided to order a generator. I read through most of the reviews on EGD and settled on the B&S 30470. The generator was delivered in a few days as scheduled, along with the transfer switch kit.

Like most of the reviews it took about a half hour to get the wheels on, and I fired up the generator right away. Very glad we ordered the electric option. Had an electrician come to set up the... more

We had a 4 day black out around Halloween in the N.Y. area. Bought the Briggs & Stratton 30471,Reliance Control 31410CRK transfer kit, KF10 Flush mount,CK10 Hinge Cover. It was 3 months for all the parts to come in BUT Electric Generators Direct absolutely had the best price AND NOBODY had any of the parts in stock any where period!

Perfect Transfer Switch
As others have stated, the installation of this unit is very straightforward. If you have ever installed a light or changed a plug you can install this. In fact my wife was helping me install this unit when and after seeing me connect the first circuit she asked if she could try and then proceeded to take over and wire the rest of the unit!

While the actual wiring is very well documented (watch the videos), it did take me a few hours to complete my install. I wanted to make for a very... more

Transfer Lit 31410crk
So for so good, this transfer kit comes with all you need except a connector if needed. EZ instructions and ez to read. I have it all set up now but still waiting for the generator that has been back ordered, I will let you know how all goes when I fire it all up. By the way the price on this kit is the best you will ever find. I am retired and had plenty of time to research prices and this place did it for me.

Satisfied Customer
So far everything is good. Installed the transfer switch with no problems. I have done a good deal of electrical work so it was fairly simple to install. The generator is a little noisier than I expected but we will adjust.

I cannot say enough good things about R&L Carriers. I was unable to be home on the delivery date so I went to pick it up at their location. Unfortunately, there was some confusion on the arrival date. I received a call from a manager apologizing for "their"... more

Ready For Next Time!
This kit is a must-have for installing any portable generator the right way. I only had to add the 10-3 wire from the inlet plug to the switch. The product is of high quality. Installation was very straight forward with all the wires pre-labeled. Ordering was easy and I received several status e-mails. Electric Generators Direct shipped my order quickly.

I Did It!
I know nothing about electricity. But, i watched the how to video, followed it step by step and BAM up and running in about 3 hours. My wife was shocked. I have a 8500 titan generator and can run everything I need with no problem. I am an over the road trucker and now I am confident my wife can handle a power outage when I am away from home. I am very satisfied with this power transfer kit......

More Bang For The Buck
I tend to be very skeptical about making online purchases. I chose to research online but purchased via the phone. I had plenty of questions for the customer service person I who took my order. She was very patient with me and knowledgeable. When I asked questions she could not answer she investigated and called me back with the answers.

Delivery was timely. All of my accessories shipped separate from the generator and arrived very quickly. The initial shipping date for the generator... more

Perfect
Both products are perfect. The generator started after 2 pulls. Tested the connections and worked great. The switch kit was easy to install if you're a little handy.

I was anxious to use it a couple of times this season but fortunately we didn't lose power.

I would recommend both the company and the products.

New Generator
Received Reliance transfer switch in good condition, also Briggs & Stratton generator arrived in good shape no damage.

Hats off to R & L Carriers who delivered the generator the driver put it right in my garage I didn't have to handle it at all, took just about 30 minutes to un-box and assemble, put in oil & gas and away it went.

Transfer switch was easy to install instructions easy to follow had no problems at all. Very satisfied with purchase and dealing with EDG.

Everything To Do The Job Properly
I had been thinking of back-feeding the panel but decided to do it right. This system gave me everything to do the job properly.

The hardest part of the installation was to decide which circuits to use and to distribute the load. The switch gave me ten 120 volt circuits to play with, which was more than enough to cover most of my home.

I decided not to include the electric stove and ovens in the kitchen as they would have tied up too many circuits. I did include the microwave,... more

I Highly Recommend This Switch
This is a nice product with quality components. Installation was fairly easy. I had one circuit that would not transfer to generator power and when I called Reliance customer support, they quickly sent me a new circuit breaker - very good service!

When I took off the panel to install the new breaker, I discover a disconnected spade connector so it was never a serious problem.

My only minor disappointment was that you need to cut off (destroy) the L14-30 plug in order to install the... more

Two Thumbs Up
The transfer switch arrived in two days as scheduled. The switch is very heavy duty and well constructed.

One of the 15 amp circuit breakers was cracked where it came through the panel but was still OK to install. One call to Reliance Controls and a replacement breaker is on its way.

The panel took a skilled electrician about 6 hours to install. This included routing 60 foot of 10-3 wire to the outside panel connector.

My 5000 watt Husky generator with the 10 circuit transfer switch... more

I was looking for a reasonably priced transfer switch to go along with the generator we recently purchased.

Electric Generators Direct shipped the transfer switch quickly and I was impressed with the quality of the switch and the components when they arrived.

I installed this switch to the breaker panel in about an hour and a half and found the instructions to be very straight forward. This was a very easy install, and I have not worked on a main panel before (even though I am very... more
