Your hole cutting skills are better than mine.

Monday Evening Update:

This evening I did some permanent wiring of the Gencon II Pro controller inside my Onan LT ATS. I am far from done before all wiring is completed, but got some of the basic wiring done and one less thing (controller) hanging off of the ATS. I used spiral wire cable wrap since that is what's used by Onan for other wire packs in my ATS (trying to be consistent). Anyway, I got lots more to learn and to do, but having fun.

Looks nice.

Make a schematic of what you did , in 10 years you won't remember how you wired it. Plus eventually good for next owner

I used to just take things, oh I'll remember how it went together.....
That why now I take 1-2 minutes and draw an extensive picture ...... so I don't forget 5 minutes later and take hours figuring it out. I did that enough

Thumbs up Re: Generator Controllers - Gencon II Pro

Very nice job of wire labeling with clear shrink wrap. You won't have to worry about those wire markers falling off after a few years. The spiral wrap is a nice touch too.
