Reliance Raintight Power Inlet Box - 50 Amp
I think they could have provided a little more room to allow for wires in the 8ga.or even 6ga. (which was my recommended for my generator power source 10,000 plus watts) range to be connected to the receptacle. I finally got it all together after much grunting and cursing though. Just don't breath on it. LOL!

O.K., but not great
The first unit shipped out to me had terminal screws on the connector stripped.
Anyhow, enclosure should be re-designed to add more depth and less height. There is not enough depth to provide proper bending radius even with 8 AWG. wire.
If you're not getting an inspection, and you have enough muscle, this is O.K..
I would look online for another brand before I bought another one of these.

I use this connection on a shipping container converted into a workshop. It is nice to have this connector for my generator which powers up my panel inside for other equipment.

Don't get caught with your power down
The raintight power inlet box makes it so much easier to connect your backup generator. If you don't have a dedicated standby generator, you have got to have a convenient way to connect, and this is it!! When your power goes off, you don't have time to fumble around and make connections. This is as simple as plugging in an outlet.

Reliance Raintight Power Inlet Box
Installed this using 8 gage wire and did not have the difficulties the 6 gage caused one individual. Looks good, works good, makes connecting a portable generator up during a power outage a breeze! This is the only place I saw this box, I had been going in and wiring up a line everytime we had an extended power outage, this is the perfect solution!

Low quality. There very little room inside the box.If you're using #6 Ga. THHN wire good luck getting the cover on.I had to add extra sheet metal screws just to keep it closed

Perfect fit for my project. Cover fit very securely and mounting was a cinch

Reliance Raintight Power Inlet Box - 50amp
This box is used to connect a portable generator to a manual transfer switch connecting power to my cabin. The box is very sturdy, rain tight, and the fit and finish is excellent. It provides an ideal quick connection between the generator and the transfer switch. It comes with complete instructions for mounting andI highly recommend it.
