Smile Inverter help!?!?!

So I've already purchased an aims 3000 watt pure sine wave power inverter and I'm having difficulty figuring out the best way to wire it to my AC panel..... I know there are automatic options and better ways to do it. But wouldn't it be possible for me to wire my inverter to a 30 amp plug and manually unplug the cord from the inverter and plug it into Shore power and vice versa. I'm not running any big appliances and plan to be mindful of the load. I guess my question is would the 30 amp plug/cord option work?

Absolutely. Plug and socket is the easiest (to understand, and to implement) transfer switch there is. Wire a power cord with a male plug to the input of your AC panel. Set up a female socket at the inverter output.

The power cord can then be plugged to the socket at the inverter for inverter/battery power, or it can be plugged to a campground/home/generator/wherever power source instead.
