Installing a Reliance 31406CRK transfer switch

I have a question about my new transfer switch install. I'm running a remote power inlet box to the main switch. The manual on page 10 states to install the WHITE building wire to "W", the RED to "X" and the BLACK to "Y".

However, the installation video
for the Power Inlet Box states that the BLACK wire should go to "X" and the RED should go to "Y".

The transfer switch itself simply has color coded wire to hook into, so I don't suppose there's any way to mess that up.

Help please!

The usual procedure is:

W = white
X = Black
Y = Red

However, swapping the black and red leads will have no effect on the installation.

Thanks. I believe I'll wire it per your recommend and the installation video.
