Want to power your RV’s entire 30A electrical system from a POWER INVERTER without new wiring or electrical sub-panel. This transfer switch makes it easy. This is a simple off-grid setup for an RV with 30 amp service, portable generator and/or solar. Watch my DIY Installation. I’ll also explain what an automatic transfer switch does.
This Go Power transfer switch is designed to work with a stand-alone power inverter and stand-alone battery charger. It will provide off-grid 120VAC power to your entire rig and seamlessly switch from inverter power back to shore power.

I’m just now getting around to installing this transfer switch. My original transfer switch failed many months ago. Since we rarely connect to shore power, we’ve been able to go boondocking and occaisionally stay in RV parks without it.
Replacing my old transfer switch this this model allowed me to remove a previously installed relay I had installed to automatically disconnect my converter/charger while runing my Inverter.
Here’s that previous auto charger disconnect video install: https://youtu.be/lqXngyKtZtc
Having recently removed my onboard generator, there was no need to switch between generator and shore power. Instead I needed to switch between inverter and shore power, while also disabling the battery charger while on inverter power. This transfer switch does exactly that.
We mostly boondock (dry-camp) and power our RV from solar and 400 amp hours of lithium batteries. The 2000W pure sine inverter provides AC power to the entire RV, but will also run the battery charger unless it’s automatically disabled.
