Please post pics of before and after, I plan on going this route also.

Stay Warm Glenn!

This is a project I plan on doing as well - would be really great if you can post before & after Picts!

One Mod to the install you may want to consider is installing twist connectors (I think this is what Ron did in his old Sabre). That way, when you decide to upgrade to a Charleston All you have to do is disconnect at the twist connectors and move the EMS to the new rig.

Just make sure to use #6 wire - that appears to be #10 romex in the photo which is not heavy enough for 50 amp service.

No Glenn, not those. They are referring to the cord male and female ends. The ones that twist to lock together.

That's a 30 amp unit pictured which is why it's #10 romex

Glenn here's a photo of my install. I just used a cut off piece from the coach cable. If and when I ever change coaches I'll worry about if I keep it or let it go with the coach.
