6. From the load management plan, determine the

load that is to be connected to Load Manager™

switch circuit “A”. Turn that load center circuit

breaker to its “OFF” position. Loosen the screw

that retains the wire to this breaker, then detach

the wire. Figure 5 shows the selected load wire

detached from the circuit breaker.

7. Find the black and red wires marked “A” that come

from the Load Manager™ switch. Using good

workmanship, route both of these wires near the

selected circuit breaker. Trim and strip the red “A”

wire and install it properly into the circuit breaker.

8. Trim and strip the black “A” wire to mate with the

wire previously detached from the breaker. Secure

the wire ends with a wire nut. Neatly dress the

wires into the load center, as shown in Figure 6.

IMPORTANT:The installer should never cross the

black and red leads from the Load Manager™ switch.

Doing so will void the warranty and could cause

significant damage to Load Manager™ components

and the generator.
Make Sure:
• The RED wire from the Load Manager™ switch is

always connected to the circuit breaker.

• The BLACK wire from the Load Manager™ switch is

always connected to the wire going to the load.


You must connect the Load

Manager™ switch wires as described or serious

damage to the equipment or yourself may result.

9. Select the load center circuit that will become load

management circuit “B”. Repeat Steps 6 through 8

for the red and black wires marked “B” coming

from the Load Manager™ switch.

10. If you wish to connect a 240 Volt AC two-pole

circuit, such as a well pump, proceed as follows:
a. Turn off the two-pole circuit breaker used for

the pump circuit and detach the load wires

from that breaker.

b. Select the four wires marked “C” and “D”

coming from the Load Manager™ switch

conduit and route them close to the selected

circuit breaker(s).

c. Repeat Steps 6 through 8 for each pair of red

and black wires “C” and “D”.

d. A typical two-pole circuit connection is shown

in simplified form in Figure 7.
