I am sorry, but the comparison chart made me laugh, the reason is how Progressive brags about shutting down on an open neutral situation.

On a separately derived system, which is the way the campground would be set up. the Neutral conductor and the grounding conductor would not be bonded together. Therefore the INSTANT you had an OPEN NEUTRAL condition, YOU WOULD LOSE 110 Volt power.

It is really amazing how many can be conned by marketing gamess.

X5 with all the above


However, what you are describing is a low voltage situation and all the Progressive EMS will do is shut your system down in order to protect your electrical components. (Do NOT take this to mean you do not need a Progressive - you DO!)


What will "Fix" Low voltage systems is a Hughes Autoformer:

A Hughes+Progressive will make your RV bulletproof to any and all electrical maladies out there


Hope this helps

I purchased the EMS-PT30C. Do any of you put a cover or some thing over it to protect the outlet from the elements? I saw the new ones have a plastic cover for the outlet.

Nope.
Mine hangs outside. It hangs outside even in driveway, 365 a year - camping trips.

Help me get what you are saying. I think I hear you saying that if you had an open neutral...that is a disconnect of the neutral wire in the receptacle at the pedestal (or anywhere else upstream to the originating distribution panel)...that 110 volt power would be lost? If so, that is exactly why the PI unit would shut down power to its receptacle so that 110 voltage potential would not enter the trailer's connecting cord or, subsequently, the trailer on the hot conductor. So where are the marketing gamess [sic]? Sounds like it's doing exactly what it should do...
