Anyone Installed a Reliance 51406C Transfer Switch?

OK, I took everyone's advice and ran a separate 6/3 w/50A male inlet receptacle back to the panel area so my RV generator can feed the transfer switch.

I'm ordering a Reliance 51406C (50A, 6 circuits). The generator (Onan 5500) puts out 45A, but my house only needs a small number of circuits because it has mostly natural gas appliances and gas furnace with radiators.

I was wondering if anyone has hardwired one with 6/3 Romex? The small compartment the unit has for hardwiring looks pretty tight for 6/3 plus the wire nuts.
