Can you provide more insight on this install? I am considering this installation, but everytime I talk to an Onan sales representative about it, they just say it's not cost effective as an after market add-on. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
In general if you were going to pay someone to do it and you didn't have a motorhome with all the wiring required to hook up the EC-30 already in one central location then that would be true.
However you have a Winnebago Product and will have it easier then most others.
Mine went like this:
Cut a hole, to install the EC-30, in the paneling next to the OnePlace panel using the Onan provided template and a sharp knife.
Remove the OnePlace panel without disconnecting it and hang it beside the opening to have easy access to the wires.
Drape the Onan provided wireing harness through the hole just cut and feed it through to the OnePlace panel.
Splice into about a dozen wires already located in the OnePlace and run a wire to the dash area for the safty input.
Plug the wiring harness into the EC-30 and test out the system.
Mount the EC-30 in the hole that was cut.
Put the OnePlace back.
If you want to exploit the power failure feature of the EC-30 you will have to provide a 110 to 12 volt transformer to hook this up to. You can wire it to the shore power side of the transfer switch and run the two 12 volt wires to the EC-30.
