Based on advice from many posts here, I'm looking into a surge protector for my (being built) Forester MBS. I first thought a portable one by Progressive Industries SSP-30
is a good choice, but later was convinced that this model is not sufficient - it does not detect low voltage, it does not switch on/off automatically. It does provide protection against spikes by absorbing it but the capacitor (?) will need to be replaced after a few uses. The Progressive Industries rep suggested this hardwired model with remote display, EMS-HW30C
, which is also recommended by many users here. The rep said it's really not difficult to install it by myself.
Long story short, has anyone installed this model or the similar one without the remote by yourself? Is there any challenge? Obviously I'm not an electrician and don't plan to challenge myself to be one.
