I just looked at my Bounder and that might work. We would have to use sheet metal screws and make sure there is nothing in the gen compartment that will be drilled into. That will keep it up out of they way in case there is any water or heaven forbid a sewage spill. Thanks for the idea I will keep thinking on this.

I wouldn't worry too much about the water as it is an outdoor unit. The instructions say not to let it get fully submerged. EEK

In our '07 35E I mounted the autoformer in the skinny cabinet between the utility bay and the generator bay. The transfer switch is in the bedroom directly above this bay so it was convenient for the wiring, and I use that bay for my spare cords anyway.

I bought this:


I used it to install a hard wired Surge Guard in my electrical bay. This makes it removable from the circuit in case of failure.





Sounds like this is what you are trying to do with your installation. Do a search for Autoformer Installation Kit.

There was a change in 08 and there is no longer a " skinny " cabinet inbetween the genny and utility bay. The power cord is in the utility bay on the 08.

Nice install ,but we're talking about where and how to secure a portable surge protector and the 50 amp wire needed to make a pigtail for it.

I may go with my original idea of just laying it on it's back in front of the utility panel since it is an outdoor unit.

Where exactly do you mean " front of the utility panel"?

The panel with the water connection and low point drain valves. I plan to lay it on it's back just inside the compartment door on the bottom of the compartment in front of that panel.

My sewer hose is on the right and electrical cord is on the left. The board on top of the hose is where I plan to put the surge protector.
