TRC SurgeGuard Install

Took advantage of the great weather here today and installed my hardwired 30 amp TRC SurgeGuard with remote display.
Found a good location for the remote display and started running wires. I was going to mount the main unit in the cabinet under the stove but decided against it since many here complain the unit hums and/or buzzes. So I got a little extra wire and ended up putting it in an outside storage bay in front of the rear tires on the drivers side of the vehicle. Powered it up and works great and it does not hum or buzz at all as of now.

SeaDog I went out today and the rig has been plugged in now for about 24 hours since the install. The unit does have a very slight hum. But nothing close enough to hear inside

I only went with the hardwired so I can have the remote display inside. Probably won't need it much but I love gadgets.
