Surge Protector

Just doing some more "shopping" while waiting for the 29HFS to arrive at the end of the month....

It seems the majority of people are using Progressive protectors. If I have done my homework correctly, it looks like I should be ordering the "EMSHW30C" model. By using the hardwired version, I don't have to worry about locking the portable ones. Also, it seems the EMSHW30C model has a "bypass" switch so you can still have power (i.e. unprotected) if the unit has a malfunction.

Looking for any feedback or suggestions from the forum. Also, if anyone has installed one in their 29HFS, I would love to see some pictures as I wait for my 29HFS to arrive....

Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

I went with the 50 amp version of the same unit. Seems to be the best out there and does it all. Will be installing this week.

Taken,
Watched a video from the Progressive website about the install. Seems like a 15 minute install once you know where you want to put it...

Just for verification, is your understanding that you don't need to have separate plugs on either side of the Progressive to bypass it? I see that Dave961 did this via the picture below. I think with the "bypass" switch on the remote LED, you won't need to have the separate plugs.

Correct. To bypass, just hit the button. Mine will be buried behind a wall in my basement so no way am I going to go unscrewing and digging to swap it out when the supplied remote and button do it from the comfort of my galley! Just be sure to order the unit with the remote. They sell it with and without...

Thanks for the conformation just using the "bypass" switch if ever need...

And being cheaper than the portable ones, even better.

It could be located inside the access compartment in the "super pantry" behind the utility wall. Plenty of room. While in there, I would add a 110Vac outlet on the panel so you will have a outlet on that end of the sofa or dinette.
