Manual Transfer Switch

" This manual switch is exactly what I was looking for. It has isolated generator and main power, and only one incoming power line can be engaged at a time. This also has the flexibility of choosing which circuit breakers to turn on/off when the generator is connected. In my opinion this is an advantage because I have a generator that cannot power the whole house, but I can run different circuits and different times (e.g. electric dryer on for a while, then shut off and turn on electric stove later). I would buy this again. "

It's not automatic, but serves the purpose

" I read on the internet that the problem with some of the inexpensive automatic transfer switches included with many generators is that they are rated for no more than 100 amps and most line services to houses are 200 amps. I also saw that the electrician that wired my recently built house wanted a 200 amp product, but the automatic switches rated at 200 amps cost nearly as much as the 14KW residental generator . This is a good alternative, however realize it's not automatic . That's no "biggy" for me, as I really only care to use the generator when I am home anyway. With this product you can pick and choose with each use the circuits you want to turn on, whereas with the automatic ones you have the circuits specified and rewiring needs to be done in order to change them.
