Picture 12 of 12 from Album Replacing my IOTA ILC-3045 with Magnum Energy MSH-3012M Hybrid
Point of no return, cutting my shore power from it's entry point into the IOTA.  I could have removed the stock romex from the load center altogether, I just figured as tight as all that wiring is inside, I'd rather take the easy, lazy way out and twist tie both shore to the new ME input and ME output to the stock romex going into the IOTA load center.  UPDATE:  9-15-14 ** WIRE WARNING ** I had questions and contacted Magnum Energy tech support, incidentally they are great to work with.  They warned me that using 10/2 Romex from the inverter to the load panel is a fire hazard & may melt the wiring.  Per the installation instructions; #6 AWG wire is required for 60 amp over protection.  In a load support situation, you may very well exceed 30 amps when combining both shore and battery power to the load panel in order to avoid a low voltage, brown out condition.
