Transfer Switch for Whole-Home Backup Kit

Step-By-Step Process to Install the Transfer Switch

Integrating with Jackery Explorer 3000 Pro or 2000 Plus secures your home and keeps the refrigerator, garage door, light switches, and outlets in the main living area charged.

Jackery Manual Transfer Switch acts as a mediator between the utility meter and the solar generator. You'll need a TT-30P to L5-30R power cord to hook up 3000 Pro or 2000 Plus to the transfer switch.

Once you have installed the transfer switch, follow the steps to use it during a power outage.

Step 1: Insert one end of the TT-30P to L5-30R power cord into the AC outlet of Explorer 3000 Pro or Explorer 2000 Plus.

*To power your home circuit with the 2000 Plus or 3000 Pro, you will need a TT-30P to L5-30R power cord to hook up your 2000 Plus or 3000 Pro to the transfer switch.
*Suggested length: 10ft, or customize the length based on the height of the transfer switch from the ground.

  • Glenn

    I have an RV trailer that requires 30 Amp of power to run it. What would I need to get?

  • Diane Albright

    Would this power my well pump?

  • Edward Barnes

    I understand I can run my solar power at the same time as I have power coming from the utility company. Is this correct? Can I plug my solar battery into a home outlet to recharge my batteries with utility power at the same time I use Jackery products to run things that take more power to run? Ex: Can I use utility power to run my lights and TVs and use solar power (Jackery batteries) to run my microwaves, A/C and freezers?
