Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

That automatic transfer switch can be any brand. They all work the same. You don't want a manual switch. There are any number of good ones out there and shop around as the price varies. Try Best Converter. Get back to me if you need more on the hookup once you get that. All follow ups are included in our fee.

We never install one so I couldn't say............I will opt out and perhaps another tech here may know something. I will have to say this isn't the best idea.
