Just installed the Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C

Just installed the Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C behind my 50 amp panel...here is the "quick" and almost easy way to install one

I know the display is side ways...but it is right above my stairs in my 5th wheel...I can also see it from outside with the door open.

I had enough slack to cut the shore wire and insert the EMS.

I did say quick and easy...

and because it didn't really happen with out pictures...

That's all there is to installing one? I thought it would have been more involved for some reason?

In my case...having enough slack behind the main panel, enough room for the EMS to slide in made it easy.

You can use one of these too-

IG1200RC3

I have them installed in my main house and all my immediate family's homes, and on my camping lot on a free standing electric pedestal which supplies all our campers. Good for indoor/outdoor use.

Took a lighting strike nearby 3 years ago in a bad storm, and all the neighbor's homes electronics blew out but not anything on our camping lot with one of these hooked up.

The unit itself did blow it out, but nothing beyond that. It did its job, and it was a simple $80 replacement. You can find these on eBay and other places for under $100, and really easy to install.

Plus, it comes with a warranty and guarantee.

I'm pretty savvy with electrical and know many other master electricians who use these and they have worked well for the past 15 years or so.

True but you get what you pay for in this case... a great surge surpressor
but many of us here are using the Progressive because it also monitors
frequency (good if you're on generator power) as well as over and under
voltage AND mis wired power such as missing neutral, neutral and hot reversed.
These are issues that you would not normally worry about in a permanent
home but can bite your rig's electrical system in some poorly wired camp grounds.

I had a heck of a time wiring mine because of the thickness of the wires. Your wires look to be smaller and easier to manipulate.
