Neil,
Thanks, must have missed this jumper posting. Will make this change when it warms up.

Can someone send a link to a good supplier for the EC-30? I contacted Cummings Rocky Mountain in Billings, and they said the EC-30 would cost $262.08 and the wiring harness $76.72 plus shipping.
Thanks.

I bought the EC-30W a few weeks ago for $480 total including wire harness and tax. Onan guys installed it for me at a rally but I sure I could have easily done it myself. They say it takes about 15 minutes to install. It took them a lot less than that of course.

The one thing they told me is about the shore sense. It needs an outlet not fed through the receptacle if you leave your inverter on all of the time. I only turn my inverter on when I need it so I didn't need the extra work of wiring the shore sense.

I went to them wanting the hard wired model but am glad I bought this one. Have let it do its thing a few times now and it works great.

I installed the jumper between thermostat pins 3 & 5 and everything works great. The A/C comes on when on shore power, and when shore power is disconnected, when the thermostat calls for cooling, it starts the generator, then the A/C.

I have one more question, I though after installing the shore power safety switch, if the generator was on and shore power was connected, the generator should shutdown. I need to read the manual again.

This is an old thread, but I just purchased an EC-30 (hardwired). I am curious what you guys did with the existing generator controls in the one place panel. Did you just leave them there or did you remove and cover them? Anyone care to post a picture?

Did anyone use the built in wiring harness to connect it?

Wow, you got a good deal. Rally pricing for sure. I just paid the local Onan/Cummins parts dept. $579 for the EC-30W and wiring harness with tax. Do you have any problem running your generator while going down the road? I am assuming you can by-pass the AGS and start the genset manually while moving (I read where the EC-30W has an internal device that senses motion and prevents gen start while moving).

Michael:

I installed the EC-30 in my 08 Cambria 29H. I didn't have everything centralized as you do with the OnePlace. I installed mine above the levels control panel that has the generator start switch on it. I picked up most of the circuits required from it. I just tapped to the existing wiring to the generator start switch for those connections and can use either the EC-30 or the exiting switch to start the generator. In my research, the wired model is preferable to the wireless one as it uses the RV thermomostat rather than an internal one in the EC-30W.
