I would say hardwired or portable, progressive EMS is the only way to go.
I have mine like others have stated. 30amp extention cord from pedistal to EMS, EMS to trailer power cord. I lock my EMS-PT30C to the steps under the awning so I can monitor it from outside where I spend most of my time.

I hardwired my PI EMS under the bed and after the transfer switch. That way it also gives me readings on what the generator is doing when we are being powered by it. Yes, it leaves the transfer switch exposed to surges, but the benefit IMHO of seeing what the generator is putting out is worth it. Mounted the display just under the circuit breaker panel, which is on the front of the bed facia.

Mounted mine under the cabinet behind the breaker/inverter box, and display on side of cabinet just inside the door. That way I can plug in and see if there is a problem before I set up. Also wired in twist lock plugs on the line and load side of the EMS. If I have a problem with the EMS, all I have to do is unplug both sides and plug the incoming line directly to the load going to the breaker/inverter and bypass the EMS.

I have a portable surge protector, the main cord is under the bed and I wired a plug and receptacle into the main cord and plug the surge protector inline that way it easy to transfer to another RV.
