Have a 2016 Cardinal. No space and wires too shot for hard wire install. Forced to go with PT50. In hind sight PT50 will be much easier to bypass if problem arises. Bottom line - get 5er - look at mounting space etc for HW - then decide.

I hardwired the 30 Amp surge protector with the remote read out in my travel trailer. I mounted in the area where you push in the 30 Amp cord and installed the Marinco receptacle where the push in hole is located on the side of the trailer. I purchased a 90 degree Marinco 25 ft. cord with molded ends.

End result was a very clean setup.

Took me about 1 hr. Hardest part was getting up and down on the .floor

I was able to use a portion of the original cord to wire the surge protector and to the Marinco plug. I took the shortened cord and installed the Marinco female plug on the end and had an extension cord.

I am not clear on one item and wonder if my dealer is incorrect.

If I have the HW50C installed can I use a simple adapter to connect to 30 Amp service? I find posts saying yes it works fine (of course delivering 30 Amp service) and other posts including my dealer saying it won't allow 30 Amp service. This has me leaning towards the PT50C (and potentially a PT30C as well - OUCH!)

It works fine when plugged into 30 or 20 amp service.

I had to do a simple mod on my generator so the EMS wouldn't detect an open ground condition when I use the generator.

I have a 2000 watt Champion Inverter

Used an empty plug and bonded the neutral & ground together. DO NOT wire anything to the hot. Then plug it into the unused receptacle when running the generator through the EMS.

Generator power is dependable so using the bypass switch was another option but it was such a simple mod I went with it.

Excellent! I much prefer it hard wired in and forget it. I will also plan on getting a generator so thanks for the heads up.
