30 Amp Portable Surge Protector

All, I have a Progressive 30 Amp Portable EMS with Integrated Display. When I plug it in I am not getting any errors after the startup run through. Problem I am having is I have no power when I plug in my shore power line. I am not seeing any reset on it..do I need a new one or am I missing something?

Thanks,
Susan

Are the breakers in your Rockwood switched to 'ON'? If so have you tried to reset them?

Does the EMS have a digital display showing voltage and amperage and if so, is it reading normal.? I am guessing shore power for camper works without the EMS on it?

Yes I can plug in straight into the shore power and it works...just worries me after reading all the horror stories on here.

Ok....went back and read the directions (novel idea I know...) seems it takes about 2:30 minutes before power comes on. I guess this was the first time I did not plug the surge protector in first then go get my shore line. Lesson learned...

I put in the portable unit a few weeks ago. The peace of mind is worth the price. Got a really good chain lock and if anybody wants it they are going to have to work for it. Then I will find them and they will be my new surge protector!

When I first plug mine in there is a red warning light on the front, after it goes thru the test cycle about
(90 to 120 seconds) then a green light comes on and if the read out looks good I can plug the trailer in.

My TRC surge protector has a two minute 16 second delay to start. And if you hi/low voltage and it shuts down again 2min 16 sec. delay after the power is corrected. This help the A/C to drain down to prevent damage. If anyone need one, I'll have a 30 amp TRC surge protector at the Goshen garage sale.
