Generator Transfer switch mounting issue

Greetings all,

I have ran into an unexpected problem installing a Generac transfer switch. I have planned to flush mount switch beside main panel. I have cut out opening in sheetrock and there is not enough space between studs to mount switch. I am about 3/8 if an inch shy of it fitting in wall. Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance for any help.

Welcome to the forums.

You're trying to flush mount the transfer switch next to the panel.

Most transfer switches I've worked with were not designed to be flush mounted and had too much wiring to even consider the possibility.

The only suggestion I can think of is to move the stud.

They don't have one except the Gen Ready load center.

Kinda why I was asking cause if it's a 100/200 amp SE or non SE switch, it would need togo outside.
