Re: Three way transfer

I thought you needed to have both shore power inputs connected at the same time. Looks like this switch does one or the other, but not both.

A 4-pole switch will do that

OP is going to use two switches, one for each panel. Swap feed to panel 1 from shore cord A to gennie to inverter. Swap feed to panel 2 from shore cord B to gennie.

Re: Three way transfer

I need both panels connected on the genset only. Using this 3 way switch and a 2 way switch I already have will accomplish what I need to do. The 2 way will have shore power and genset to the air con electrical panel and the 3 way will have shore power, genset, inverter to the main electrical panel,
