Inverters and AC Transfer switch

I am considering installing a Prowatt 1750 inverter on my Pearson 424. Included in the design is a 30 Amp AC transfer switch. I am curious if anyone else that has installed an inverter has also put in the transfer switch. I know some of the more expensive models have them built in. I think the 55 dollars for the switch is cheap insurance to protect the inverter. OR is it overkill. The kind of cruising I do now is mostly 1 or 2 days at a time. I know I will at some point in time forget to turn off the inverter and destroy it when coming back into the dock.
Regards
Alan
