Reliance Transfer Switch Panels

For their prewires Pro Trans units, is anyone familiar with the Reliance Transfer Switch Panels.

My ideal location for the transfer switch is about 5-6 feet away from the panel.
Just short of splicing the wires into a J Box and then extending it....

How are these panels setup.
Can it be opened up and can I just run replace them with longer leads ?

The Reliance transfer switches I have installed are quite simple and have sufficient leads to prevent you from having to splice wires. I think 5 or 6' is pushing the envelope. 3' maybe. Is there a reason it can't be mounted any closer to the panel?

The panel is built with custom cabinetry around it. The access door is only sized for the panel + a couple inches around.


About 5 Feet Away, is the shutoff for the gas valve That area has a much larger door as the meter is uptop, valve on the bottom. Plenty of room to mount as well.

Well, after looking online, I'm going to use the Q310 series instead of the Pro Tran model. Seems like these uses *normal breakers* and is designed for the end user to do their own internal wiring.

The Q310 looks like the ticket. All their transfer switches are branded Pro Tran, I believe, but I know which one you are referring to. You'll probably have to conduit between the two to protect all the wiring. Is that feasible? Or do you think you'll need it?
