I am getting ready to install a shore power isolation transformer on my Hanse 370e. It's been a while since I crawled around the rear transom so I can't remember how difficult it will be to mount the transformer. I believe I would probably mount this on the port rear (near AC) but due to the weight ( 70 lbs) I want to make sure is will not move. Has anyone done this before?

I've not done anything like that on my 370.  There is plenty of room in the rear area and mine is always very dry.  I suspect you will find it difficult to manoeuvre that weight around in there as although the area is roomy it is not conducive to getting a good grip on things.
I don't think the rear cabin bulkhead will support such a weight.  The incoming fuse is mounted on that bulkhead - port side - so you probably want to be reasonably close.
To support lighter weights I have glassed onto the hull hardwood battens.  Maybe an option is to do something similar onto the floor of the compartment to level it out so the majority of the weight is supported that way.  Then use the bulkhead to stop fore/aft movement.
Good luck...
