Sid - the installation is very straight forward as depicted in Wayne's post even though it's not an Alpine. My coach is in the shop until Monday or Tuesday at which point I could take pictures if you need it.
Here's the basic procedures:
1. Mount the Surge Guard Protector next to the transfer switch box as depicted in Wayne's picture. It looks like Wayne used a small piece of plywood on the ceiling whereas I mopunted mine directly. You need to observe the "IN" and "OUT" orientation to make the cabling direct and simple. I placed the "OUT" or "LOAD" end towards the end of the transfer switch box to allow as short of pigtail cable as possible.
2. MAKE SURE THAT ALL A/C POWER SOURCES ARE TURNED OFF &/OR DISCONNECTED!!!
3. Remove the cover on the transfer switch box.
4. Loosen the connectors inside the transfer switch box, the clamp holding the cable on the box, and remove the cable.
5. Connect this cable to the "IN" side of the surge protector.
6. Here's where Wayne & I differ in our approach based upon his pix. I used a 3 - 4' 6 AWG 4- conductor open ended pigtail cable purchased from a local electrical store. Connect one end to the "LOAD" side of the surge protector and the other end to the transfer switch box while observing wire color code (red, green, white, black).
That's basically it. Everytime you connect to shore power the surge protector will take approximately 2 - minutes before actually passing the "LOAD" at which point you'll here the transfer switch "click".
If you want to use Wayne's method of employing plugable pigtails, I'll let him describe what he did.
Again, let me know if you want close-up pictures which I can take early next week.
