A 3' section of 8/4 (for 30amp) appliance cord, which you can get at Home Depot. If you want plugs I can put those in also. I've never put them on mine though. For 50 amp service you need 6/4 appliance cord.

So if you're going to go this way, I'd see if a fellow frog might be willing to let you ship it to their house, and then bring it to you at the rally.

Alternatively, the Camping World in Belleville is just 20 mins or so outside of Detroit down I-94 where you can walk in and pick up a TRC off the shelf (when they're in stock). That's how I ended up with a TRC instead, despite the PI being the better unit (as per the number of acclamations on here).

Thanks but I never ship anything across the border, there are perfectly good pick up places in Port Huron to have stuff shipped to been doing that for years.

Easiest way around this is to buy or make a neutral-ground bonding plug.

Yep, used a place like that in both Port Huron and Detroit in the past. But if I recall, neither one is easy to get to with a rig in tow. So it's either pick it up on a day run, and then pay the taxes bringing it back, or if it's done the weekend of the rally, you'll have your 48 to bring it back under your $800 exemption.

I don't understand, you mean that if your trailer is in the USA and install it you still have to pay import TAX?..

The EMS will display E 2 Open Ground error and not allow power to the RV.

What I did was.... with a spare male plug, wire the neutral and ground together and then plugged it into an empty 110 receptacle on the generator. E 2 error gone...

Aqua man, I will not need the plugs I have just ordered the new by pass pendent incase the unit go's out, so I will not need the plugs...Thanks again, I also have 6' of #10 wire romix to hook it in, is there anything else I should bring.

You would be required to declare it and pay duty if over the limit on your personal exemption.

When returning back to Canada I've often been asked if I repaired or modified my vehicle during my stay in the US.
