Anyone have any thoughts about manual vs. automatic transfer switches?

Thanks. j
We like the Samlex Automatic Transfer switch installed by Escape, single button operation, it is installed flush with bench seat wall. When not connected to shore power push button and all outlets are powered. The Go Power Solar Controller is on the left.

Nice option Dave&Kathie, easy access for turning inverter on/off.

As an aside, Dave&Kathie's remote switch looks like Samlex's SSW-R1-12B which comes with the SSW-1500-12A (or available for 1000) inverter. However, two days ago Kim told me that Escape uses the SSA-1000-12A. Makes me confused, and wonder if the "SA" is a typo, or Escape has switched from the SSW series to the SA series. Not that big a deal, just curious. Anyone have any thoughts?
