I have an MCI in progress. Have a wiring problem.
I have the 24 volt 235 amp alternator on the engine, battery isolator,  8KW Wrico genset, 24 volt Outback inverter, wrico tranfer switch, shore power and am using a blue sea breaker panel.
Problem to hook this together.
- the transfer switch hookup.
-24 volt 235 amp alternator
-shore power
All to the breaker panel
Thanks Glenn

  Shoreline to transfer switch, generator to transfer switch (make sure you switch neutrals as wells as hots). Transfer switch to breaker panel. I am not familiar with the Blue Seas Beaker panel, but remember that the Inverter cannot feed back into the same leg that is supplying AC power to the inverter (that will let the smoke out of the inverter). I uise a sub panel fed from main load center for the inverter. (hot and neutral from main panel to inverter, hot and neutral from inverter to sub panel). This sub panel feeds all circuits that operate off the inverter.
  Are you wiring 240/50 amp or 120/30 amp?  Jack
