yes, Progressive Industries makes each unit in a hardwired and portable version.

I went with the portable unit $228 plus $45 for shipping to Canada and another $40ish for HST. So with the currency exchange I was up around $360 Canadian plus $40 making it around $400. Don't regret buying it but it is pricy.

Ya but you REALLY should get the full blown EMS protection or your trailer might get full blown dead.

Absolutely, and totally agree. at my 7/4 cg this year... think of this...in a block of eight campers..me (HTT) 28ft fr next to me, neanderthal with a/c behind me, a pup, a class A and a tri axle 200x. Me, the PI keeps on shutting down. Display reads 104 and keeps shutting power off. I am safe, thanks to PI. No one else complains, A/C cranking (except for poor pup). I even chat with tri ax 5th guy who said both his a/c's are running fine. Don't want to fry my equipment so I don't over run anything. Am I too protected, or (this nationally know cg chain to blame)?

Been there, no protection; open neutral, BAD $$$$!! Electrician (at resort at midnight) checked pedestal, no open neutral. ISSUE: bam; open neutral as verified next morning by independent mobile rv tech. RV resort paid up for call; new microwave BUT had water heater and inverter issue down the road.
Read previous post and note: indicator vs protection. Spend your money and buy Progressive EMS.
If you go another route, you will be out your $$$ and complaining and then shopping! Save yourself the headache. Electrical issue in these boxes we call RV's can be deadly! Is your family's SAFETY AND PEACE OF MIND worth $500? If not, SELL AND BAIL! I know mine is!
When our electrical power issue happened at midnight, we slept with all power off until a tech came the next day. If you have ever seen these "RV's" burn, you will RUN to buy protection. My opinion is manufacturers should include it in the build NOT AS AN OPTION! What's another $400 at build?

I'm glad they don't include it, because if it was the same quality as some of the other materials, it would burst into flames the first time you plug it in

Ordered portable unit today from Amazon: $313.00 + tax.
You should probably plan on buying a lockable cable to secure it at the post, so it doesn't walk away
