WolfWhistle,
Happy to hear there is plenty of room to add the surge protector. And I saw your outlet/diamond plate mod on the other thread. The DW has already agreed that is on my "to-do" list (with other mods that you have done as well...)

I love this forum...

We just bought a 233S and I was wondering where's the best place to install a surge suppressor. If anyone has any suggestions I'd sure appreciate it. Also, I really like the idea of using plugs to make bypass/replacement very easy. Thanks!

What is a 232S? On this forum dave961 posted pictures of a mod adding a hardwired surge protector. There is a compartment inside behind all the utility connections beside the pantry; that's where he put it. I don't know about the 233S for a good place to put it.
I use an external Progressive protector

I'm rather new to the motorhome experience and bought a "practice r v" from a friend. It is a 2001. we are planning to do something different before going full time. I bought our motorhome from a friend who says he has never had a problem with surge. It is 14 years old an was used at NASCAR races. We have used it many times over the past year. It seems incredible to me that any manufacturer would sell and warranty a $100,000 product without surge protection.

There are surges, low voltage, and high voltage caused by miswired power pedestals and failures in power pedestals. The progressive unit protects from all 3. Someone saying surges are not an issue so don't buy a protector is like saying I've had insurance on my house for 20 years and never used it so I cancelled it. Just last weekend we had very low voltage at our site. Progressive unit shut down our power. If we would have run the air conditioning very long with the low voltage, 98 volts, it surely would have damaged it. Fortunately it wasn't that hot yet.

BTW, point of clarification on the bypass switch. The bypass switch only works if the unit is not damaged as might happen if a big lightning strike hits nearby. Most of the parts in the unit have to be functional for the bypass switch to work. Being able to physically bypass it if trouble is good planning.

Progressive Industries EMS-HW30C Electrical Management System in Roo 233S

I purchased an EMS-HW30C for our 2016 Roo 233S but haven't installed it yet. The shore power comes in under the fridge and behind the converter with no easy access. The only way in it seems to me is to pull out the converter. I will be attempting to do it this week and will probably use the 30A male/female connectors on each side idea to make future removal or bypass easier.
I've read some threads and viewed a video on how to install the EMS-HW30C but if anyone has any good tips on removing the converter I'd sure appreciate hearing from you. Thanks for all the good ideas on this forum!
