Went out to put in the IQ smart charger ... that little silver box on the back wall.
Wasn't planning on doing the ATS panel just yet ... but I did it ... I guess then was as good a time as any!
First I relocated the AC power panel to make room for the ATS box.
- The standup block it was mounted to is just stapled down ... and it pulled out with a bit of coaxing.
- There is a ground wire through the bottom that prevented the box from going flush with the side wall.
- So, I just popped a piece of plywood behind as spacing and screws through for the bottom mount.
- The top screw tightened just enough to hold without pulling tight to the wall.
- It is more solid than that odd factory mount for sure!
The old way was plug and unplug into the 30A input plug for generator or shore power. Buttoned down the hatches and gave it a test ... Auto switches power sources ... good to go! Works excellent!
I also tested the smart charger! Verified it switches from a fast to trickle as it should. It started off at the upper 14v range. Awhile later it had dropped to 13.5v for trickle.
- Pulled the generator AC power output box
- positioned the ATS box with a hole drilled to match the existing cable hole.
- I cut the power cable close to the power panel maybe 12".
Stripped back the shielding and discovered the green ground wire wouldn't reach the ground block!
So I used the ground splice from the generator plug box and soldered it on the end (shrink wrapped).
- Cut the other end of the power cable for a shortened 3-4' pigtail.
The length is such that it doesn't quite hit the ground when draped out of the box.
- Stuck crimp rings on all the ends except the ground wires and screwed them down.
The diagram or instructions is a sticker on the inside of the ATS box top cover.
- All the black wires go to one side with white ones on the other side. Quite easy!
- Wired it all up!
