I installed my Progressive 50amp EMS today in the 5th wheel. Although the instructions were straight forward, the #6 wire and tight quarters made a job out of it. I mounted the box behind a wall in the basement and the remote near the control panel inside the unit. I didnít need any additional wire and didnít have to drill any holes.

Just got my PI 50 EMS installed in my trailer today. It was a long fight. That wire is tough and I was working in a small area I had to crawl on my side halfway in. Finally got it done and am very pleased.

You will all be even more pleased when it is showing an error code and you still have all the "magic smoke" inside your electronics.

Looks almost exactly like mine, it's a good feeling.

Yep learned this the hard way two weeks ago. Scorched wire pretty good. Had to fix Sunday PITA!

When I installed mine I found it a little easier to connect the #6 wires by loosening the screws that hold the relay assembly in the box. It still was a PIA but a little easier. Just don't forget to tighten them when you're through.
