What short shore cord plug ?
It was supposed to say shore power cable. I think Google got ahold of it.
I guess that makes sense. Check for power - duh? For some reason when it involves 120 volts all common sense goes out the window with me. I have a voltmeter and will give it a try.
Also, the transfer switch is a bear where it is at. I could barely get it installed last time because the wires were too short.
I want to extend these wires. Do you know if it is common practice to do this? Is there a standard way to connect this type of wiring? Or, do I have to go back to wherever they are coming from and put in new, longer wires. It might be nearly impossible to trace them back.
This might be more than you know, but I appreciate it either way.
