    Although the use of the Main that way wouldn't work out either.

      That would be the best be.

      [/QUOTE] I don't see a way to come off the load side of the fuses and disconnect in the switchboard to feed to the ATS. Maybe there is one. I don't have any drawings on the switchboard. I contacted square D and they don't have any either. It was installed in 1980 if that helps.[/QUOTE]

      Think about how dangerous that setup would be.

      If you uncoupled the main from the buss in the Switchboard and ran load side conductors out to the ATS and back, The main would work as a disconnect for the panel when on utility power, but, would not serve to disconnect the power to the Switchboard when the X-fr Switch was on generator power.

      That's just a bad setup all the way around in my book.
