Very Good Quality
I am impressed with the quality of the Reliance 10 circuit transfer switch, which I recently purchased from Electric Generators Direct. I chose to have the unit professionally installed, but I did feel confident that I could install it myself, after review of the instructions. My electrician was also glad that I purchased the Reliance unit.

Great Product, Little More Wire Please
Everything came as ordered in good shape. Installation was easy. Changed out the 30A breaker for two 20A to get nine circuits plus my well pump. Only problem was the length of the wiring. It is assumed that you can install the transfer switch within a few inches of the main panel. In my case I had to mount it a foot away. The metal conduit was too short so I had to buy a replacement piece. The wiring was just barely long enough for all but two circuits so i rearranged the panel to move... more

Quality Product - Straight Forward Installation
I chose this unit based upon the number of circuits I wanted to run.

I used the PB30 power inlet box and the 10 ft long 30 amp power cord for connection to the generator. The Reliance Controls installation instructions are very clear, and the diagrams are very good.

I spent about 8 hrs total installing everything, checking it twice. I experienced no issues once connected to the generator. With a little homework prior to the install, I had a very good power balance according to the... more

Reliance Controls Generator Switch
I mounted the 30 amp Reliance switch in the back of a bedroom closet in three hours the evening of the day it arrived. The next day the connections were made inside the home breaker panel. This took four hours for completion but was very easy to do. Most of my time was spent verifying the circuits to be connected to the unit. The switch functioned well from the start and I have had no problems with this switch. I have been very pleased with this product.

I ordered the Q310C quite sometime after Sandy in Early February. EGD had them back ordered expecting shipment about 2/28/13. It was shipped earlier and I received it in 2 days. Great service and reliability. As far as the Transfer Switch Panel, I received it yesterday and have it already installed today with 5 circuits to go. I had everything pre mapped out and the circuits all chosen. Totally suggest doing that. I mounted the wood panel on the wall also prior to arrival. The line from the... more

Best Way To Connect A Generator To Your House
Bought a generator and then started looking into how to connect it to the house electrical system. There's a lot of ways you'll find on the internet but many of them are not safe. This is the right way to do it. I particularly liked that this model has standard circuit breakers which can be purchased at any hardware store and swapped out for the size you need. 10 circuits was perfect for my needs. This thing is heavy! Very well made but heavy.

I had to mount to drywall so I used those... more

I am a do it yourself-er so I bought this Reliance Transfer Switch for a generator installation. Opened the box and was very impressed. I didn't really like the price but you have more versatility with this model. Looking ahead, I believe I made the right choice for my application.

Just What I Needed
Bought my generator this winter but didn't want the hassle of running extension cords from the garage into the house leaving doors or windows open. I liked this switch box because it had 10 circuits, I could change out the breakers from 15a to 20a if needed and it had analog meters for each side of the panel.

I have extensive electrical experience so wiring the panel was not a problem, however fixing mistakes done by an electrician when I paid to have my main box upgraded to 200a took me... more

Very Happy With This Switch
Once I got the cinderblock wall prepped with 2X's and plywood to match the main panel's mounting, then locate and mount the transfer switch. Its interchangeable breakers, pre-wired and letter coded wiring made for a fast and simple hookup to the circuits in the main panel. I'm a do-it-yourselfer.

Wiring could have been a little longer. A couple of the longer runs were more of a stretch than I would have liked, but they're OK.

I like its simple operation not only for me, but especially... more

Q310c
Just installed. Was easy after watching Reliance video. Written instructions were ok but without the video not really good enough to make clear. Pre-wired and marked wire pairs make it easy to do once you get the big picture by watching their video.

One thing that I would change is the length of the conduit supplied with the unit. As supplied you must locate the Q310C VERY close to your load center. It would be nice to have a little more easy location.

Q310c Transfer Switch Review
I like the versatility of this transfer switch. You can replace any of the breakers with standard breakers from Lowes or Home Depot. It is very easy to cable into your main panel and allows you to switch individual loads from Utility power to generator.

Easy Install For Any Handyman
Reliance Transfer switches are high quality / Top-Shelf products. I am a bit of a handyman and far from an electrician but was able to install this product easily. Allow plenty of time to thoroughly plan your install and, obviously, take extreme caution as you attach each breaker.

I would recommend to any handyman to DIY.

Like The Flexibility Of The Product, Don't Like Quality Control
The last 3 - Q310C Transfer Switches we installed were not good.
Two of them were missing the greenfield whips. (I needed to go to Home Depot & buy a full coil).
The other one, we had to take apart & plug in all of the prefabbed wiring from the factory. Quality control seems to be lacking.
Pros: Like, Interchangable

Product quality is fist rate and the featured were exactly what I needed. Installation was also a breeze.
I do have one major concern for DIY installers, read the part carefully about wiring this or any transfer switch to home that has "common neutral" branch wiring. A "common neutral" configuration is where two branches share a single neutral wire. In my home I have 5 of these "common neutral" arrangements, 10 branches altogether. If you see this branch... more
