I am curious as to how others addressed the OEM fuse panel, and how you dealt with the requirement for a plug for the PD9260 i.e. did you cut the plug off and wire it directly (voiding the warranty) or install a junction box and duplex).
Thanks for your help.
Functionally the 9260 is exactly the same as the 4655. It's just a deck mount style instead of an upgrade kit like the 4655 that is designed for the 7355/8355 (30 amp service) There is currently no kit for the 5355 that you have (since you said you have 50 amp service, that is likely what you have) so most people upgrading are using the Boondocker 1260 HW since it comes in a hard wire configuration.
