  13 Questions
Q: I was thinking about flush mounting a 31410CRK since my existing panel is also flush mounted. There is no room to mount it to either the left or right of the panel, so the transfer switch would have to be mounted directly below. Is the conduit supplied with the flush mount kit long enough to do this? Thanks. Mike
by Michael Olive from Alaska on January 18, 2014

A: Thank you for your interest in Electric Generators Direct!

The Reliance Controls KF10, 10-circuit flush mount kit will feature a 24" flexible conduit. Based on your described installation, it is likely that this length will not be suitable. Our recommendation would be to test fit the materials. This will allow you to identify a suitable length should the 24" fall short.


by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Is there a flush-mount equivalent to the 31410CRK, or a flush-mount kit that can be used with it?
by Paul from Illinois on November 01, 2013

A: Thanks for the inquiry!

The Reliance Controls 31410CRK, 30-amp power transfer system does not come in a flush-mount version. However, you are in luck as there is a flush mount kit available for that particular reason. You can find the KF10 flush mount kit on our site, by following the link provided below.

Q: Hello Mike, I recently purchased the Generac GP7500 Generator, I also purchased the Pro Tran Q310C Transfer Switch. Reading the install instructions I'm questioning weather I purchased the right Transfer Switch. The main service to my house is a 150 amps.
by Allan from Massachusetts on October 06, 2013

A: Thank you for your interest in Electric Generators Direct!

The Reliance Controls, Q310C is designed to operate as a load center. This device is essentially a manual transfer device as well as sub-panel, all-in-one. It is not required to match the utility service as this equipment will not be supporting your entire load.

The Q310C is a great fit for use with a 7500 watt portable generator which features a 30 amp, 240v output.



by Mike, Product Expert
Q: I am going to install solar panels soon. Is this something I need for this installation or will this only work with portable generator?
by Angela from Texas on May 12, 2013

A: The switches we offer are for use with generators only. You should consult with your solar system provider for proper equipment needed.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Can I install an inlet on the front of the 30 amp 10 circuit Reliance Controls 31410CRK transfer kit panel and if so could you recommend one thats sold on this site.

Thanks,
Bob

by Bob Robbins from Maryland on August 31, 2012

A: It is possible, that is what the blank cover plate space was intended for. A recent code change to the NEC has made this option one that cannot be offered by the manufacturers. This is why you will see more and more of the manual switches packaged or cross sold with the outdoor inlet box.

You may want to explore the 30310A switch and then buy a cord set to the length you then need. We offer cords in 30amp from 10'-100'. If you wanted to connect the cord direct to the switch the power inlet supplied (and part of the cost) would be rendered useless.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: With regards to the 31410CRK with 10 circuit support, (6-15A/120v, 2-20A/240v), can the 2-20A/240v circuits be swapped out for additional 120v support?
by Allen from New Jersey on January 24, 2012

A: Each individual side is 120V so with the removal of the silver connecting bar you can have 2 - 120V circuits instead of 1 - 240V circuit.

This process is mentioned in the owner's manual you receive with the switch.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Jim, I have a portable Ridgid generator rated 8,000 watts running to 10,000 watts surge. Can you recommend a transfer switch kit? Many of the kits I saw are rated for 7,500 watts. I am pretty handy, could I install the kit without a licensed electrician?
by Bill from New Jersey on January 21, 2012

A: The transfer switch size is based on the size outlet you have on your generator. Typically 8000 running watt generators have a 30A 4-Prong twist lock type outlet (L14-30R) as the largest cord connection.

All 30A connections are rated for a maximum wattage of 7500 watts; inlet boxes, transfer switches, power cords and receptacles.

So, even though your generator is rated so high, you are limited by the outlet size of 30A and you can only get 7500 watts out of your 30A outlet.

The additional wattage is available through the other outlets on the generator.

The only way to get more wattage is to go with a larger generator that offers a 50A outlet that can give you a maximum output of 12,500 watts (max for portable generators).

It is always recommended to have a certified electrician do your manual transfer switch installation. They are familiar with all your local city, county and state codes and it helps for insurance purposes.


by Mike, Product Expert
Q: I want to put the outdoor plug approximately 25 feet from my panel. Can I still do that with this kit?
by Dan from Rhode Island on September 01, 2011

A: The kit will work. However, your electrician will need to add some additional wiring between the power inlet box and transfer switch to make up for the extra length.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Can the 31410CRK handle a 10.5kW surge wattage generator? My generator is 7K Running with a 10.5 peak.
by Alan Darby from Mississippi on March 27, 2011

A: The maximum wattage on this switch is 7500 watts as it is rated at 30A. This is also true for the 30A outlet you have on your generator. (30A x 240V = 7200W) The reason manufacturers install this size outlet on your generator is because proper generator sizing should rated at 80% of the generators running capacity so when the larger loads do kick in the unit can handle the surge and still provide proper voltage.

When or if you hit the surge rating on the generator (10.5kW) your voltage output would be much lower then any sensitive electronics can handle which is why it is important to size the unit to 80%.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: is this panel NEMA 3 for mounting outdoors?
by Jeff Edwards from California on February 26, 2011

A: The transfer switch in this kit is for indoor mounting only. (31310A) The kit comes with a power inlet box (mounted outside) so the cord can be plugged into it and generator running outside allowing the power inlet box to be wired to the transfer switch mounted indoors. This set up is the preferred installation method to help prevent generators from being used indoors and allow the controls inside for ease of use.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: If I need only 1 20 amp 240 circuit can I change the other one to make 2 20 amp circuits ? Can these circuit breakers be replaced?
by Gary Ballou from New Hampshire on February 21, 2011

A: Yes, the attachment bar for the 240V circuit can be removed to allow operation of 2 - 120V circuits instead. The internal breakers cannot be switch out though.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Can you run an 8000 watt generator with the model 31410crk transfer switch?
by George Cornett from Arkansas on February 04, 2011

A: Yes, this switch is perfect for a 8000 watt generator. When sizing a generator it should be sized to 80% of the generator running capacity so when a large load kicks in the generator has enough flexibility to handle the load without sacrificing the voltage output. This helps keep proper voltage available when these loads kick in and prevents any problems with the equipment being powered.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Hello. What are the main differences between the Q310A and the 31410CRK switches?
by Raegen Carr from Florida on January 23, 2011

A: The "Q" Series Reliance Controls transfer switches have interchangeable breakers and their "Pro/Tran" Series do not.

Advantage of interchangeable breakers allows you to adapt the switch to your specific needs.

These indoor surface mount transfer switches are designed for fast installation in residential and commercial applications. The 18-inch flexible conduit whip attaches easily to the load center and all wires are clearly marked. Simply select the circuits needed in an emergency and connect them to the wire leads.

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

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 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."

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.....

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.

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 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.

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.
