Advice needed...

Upgrade to 50 Amp Power Box and Automatic Transfer Switch?

Or add another 30 Amp Power Box?

Either way will have to change the Oman Generator 20 Amp Circuit Breaker. And change the output wiring for this circuit from 12/2 to 8/2?

For those that made the change...what are steps & photos if you have them.

Thanks
Daniel

Nice clean work, Daniel! I personally would never use a metal electrical wall box in an Airstream, but I am sure you did a very safe install.

Go with the 50 amp, auto or manual, you will want both air units on a hot summer day in direct sun! You can always go down to 30 amp if that's all there is!

Thank you for the recommendation.

I know how to install the 50 amp transfer switch and power box. Trying to figure out how to change the Onan Generator 20 amp Circuit Breaker to 30 amp (goal is to have two 30 amp CB) and needed changes at M1-M4 in order to end up with four wires, 2 hot ( black & red), white neutral and green ground all going to the new 50 amp Transfer Switch.

Looking very good cesalie. You’re really busting tail getting a lot done.!

Looking at the top picture of your sub flooring it looks like you could use quite a few more screws. Not trying to critique your work here, just trying to help you avoid squeaks and buckles down the road. I’m a retired carpenter and some things just stand out to me. Your screw pattern should be 1 every 6” along the framing rails. Maybe it’s just not showing up in the picture or you planned on adding more screws before you start the finish flooring?
But from the picture it looks like you could use quite a few more screws. One every six inches along the framing is pretty standard for sub floor installation. It’s going to be subjected to a good deal more stress than a fixed structure and the 1 per 6” is the standard for homes.
Seriously not picking at your work, it’s looking good!

Mike

Mike,

Thanks for the advice. Will add more screws!

Also need to dab Sikaflex in all the drill hole “misses”

Per Mayco’s advice added about a hundred additional screws to secure the subfloor to the framing.

Plan is to build a box for the refrigerator to stand on...where the old pantry area was...

Small area underneath the frig will house the converter and Inverter. Like the original setup, the front of the box will contain the 12 volt fuse panel.

The old frig area will have a 24” cabinet with 3 drawers. Countertop will be dear wife’s “coffee station”.

Upper cabinet above coffee station will be food storage.

At least this is today’s plan...

Dear wife pacing up and down the coach living room with a tape measure, never a good sign
