Finished Shore Power Hardware

Thursday - I started this project around 10am and it's now almost 2pm. Replacing much of the shore power hardware took longer than I thought. The automatic transfer switch was replaced, the cord reel was removed and a twist lock shore power cable socket was added. In the process, I needed to move the Progressive Dynamics EMS as the interconnection cable was too short. The actual process was pretty simple, but the power cables are really stiff, almost rigid, so moving things around took a lot of physical effort. But that should be the end of our shore power problems. BTW, these problems first appeared last January when we were in Yuma running off of a very long extension cord. 

I may end up moving the 50amp socket since the cables are so stiff. The cables get even more rigid when the temperature drops. Maybe high up on the back wall. I do plan on disassembling the cord reel to see if it can be repaired. 

I think it's time for some vitamin I... 

And maybe a nap…
