Kenny I left my in the inverter compartment as well tie wrapped it to the cage in front of inverter so it is visible when I open door. I thought about putting it inside but could not figure out the best way to run it.

A good idea either with or without the EMS.

Paul weird how? I plugged my coach in with breaker live and it did a check I am guessing and then the contractor clicked in. That was the first time it had ever been energized do I didn't think anything of it.

Has anyone ran the remote wire into the coach? If so, can you tell me/post pics of where and how you got it in ?

Thanks,

I haven't done it, but plan to. If the power completely fails, I'd be able to deduce whether it was a full "hard" power failure or a temporary condition being handled by the EMS.

It's doing exactly what it's supposed to do. You plugin, wait about 10 seconds and the relay pulls in (loud click) . If there's a problem, the relay is quiet and you'll get an error code.

The breaker being off just lessens the chance of something going wrong. Not necessary all the time, but a good habit to get in to and takes no extra effort at all. For that 1 time out of a 1000 where a problem might occur.

15Berkxl,
The one time I plugged in with the breakers in the on position the EMS shut everything down. Switched the breakers off and then on and the EMS went through its cycle and then let power into the unit.

They are just talking about the Breakers at the campground pedestal. You do make sure they're turned off before you plug in don't you?

Now that I think about it, I can't think of a time where they were on when I got there, so I never imagined that's what was being discussed.

I will now make a mental note that if they ever are on to make sure I turn them off first. (sure hope I have enough brain cells left. Getting scarce)

Thanks for passing on that info !

Ken
