Maybe the unit is bad then. Hope that new one does the trick. I've had mine hooked to the power pole ever since my install. I think its cool seeing the read out and gives me piece of mind. Good luck let me know how it goes.

For sure bud. I have no ill feelings toward Progressive. The tech took my call after 5 and was helpful and I learned a few things. It should install easier next time with the wires already cut and stripped.
I'll update again after the next install.

If I missed this suggestion in any of the previous post I apologize, but have you turned all breakers in the RV off prior to turning on the main? If you isolate all circuits first then turn them on one at a time you may find the one causing the fault.

Thanks bud. Progressive says the issue isn't on the output side of the box and we checked everything back the main source.
I will give your idea a shot though. I have nothing to lose. I haven't taken the box out yet. I'll turn off all the breakers and leave the main on and see what happens.

The problem isn't in the coach, it's either in the power source or the EMS itself. Turning off breakers in the RV does nothing.

Yup, the breaker thing didn't work either but it was an easy idea worth a shot.
The EMS is hopefully coming out tomorrow if I get time. I'll post when I get the new one installed.
Thanks for everyone's ideas.

Update:
Progressive received my EMS box last Monday and it arrived back to me Friday. It was the board after all. I just got back today from a 2 day trip. Will have it installed maybe tomorrow morning for sure Monday. The pic shows what they found wrong.
I'm pretty impressed with them backing their work.

Last update:

Progressive 50 amp EMS installed and working fine. Sure glad Progressive got to it and sent it back in very timely manner.
Onto to next mod. It'll probably be this flimsy basement wall. Click image for larger version

I can't see it holding up in the long run. Looks like I got room for a 2x2 wall. Just need to figure out a better way to mount it in there. Something solid and quick release type.
