I converted mine this spring. I was lucky that my automatic transfer switch and my breaker panel was 30 or 50 amp, all I had to do was remove a jumper on breaker panel, replace the 10ga wires with 6ga wires, replace the 30a power cord with a 50a, and a couple of breakers. Cost was about $200. unless you are comfortable working with electrical wiring, I would get a qualified electrician to do it.

There was a great web site (bobhatch.com) that had great detailed info and pictures on this, but the info is no longer there. I may have a few pictures that I printed around here somewhere, I'll have to check.
