AC Power Schematic2922 viewsThis is the schematic for the AC inlet power.
There are both 120V (standard 20A plug) and 240V (CS6375) AC power inlets.
Each has a separate breaker, and only 1 breaker can be ON at a time due to a mechanical interlock.

Version 1 Genset Rack3002 viewsThis one was nice in that the Sparrow "rear panel" would just slide into the tubes. Just had to extend the wiring to reach.
The problem was that with all the weight of me and Genset, it would bottom out when going over big bumps.
