TRC surge protector install

The 50 AMP TRC surge protector that I have installed takes what appears to be smaller diameter wires than those from the shore cable. Is this only my imagination or are the TRC wire inserts just tight ? How much of a problem would I cause if I took some copper strands off of each wire so I could push each one of them into the TRC inserts easier? ....is there a better way? Much thanks for any info.

Better check with TRC before you alter anything.

Good advice, but they are closed Saturday. Just wondering if anybody else has had the same problem and how they resolved it.

If the wire has a clean cut and a good smooth twist it is a snug fit but fits.

Have you made sure the wire clamp/screw whatever holds the wire is fully undone? That sometimes causes a tight fit.

Be sure to check those connections in about a year. I was amazed at how loose a couple of the connections to my EMS had become. Also checked the connections in the generator transfer switch and found one of those working themselves loose.
