Always turn source off before connecting even if your hardware can handle it why subject anything that may cost you money to chance.

Plug in the camper, ems delays to check voltage and correct wiring then either turns on "voltage good" or it doesnt.

Unless they put them in when they leave the factory we must not have a surge protector . Turbs is the one you guys are talking about you put on post or in your unit .

I'm not Turbs, but...

The Progressive EMS is available in either form. They come with a plug and a socket to plug directly into the power source. You plug your cable into it. That eliminates installation hassles but puts the information display outside and creates the potential for theft.

The "permanent" installation requires wiring skills or having someone else do it. You wire it between the main power line coming into the trailer and its connection on the power panel.

If you get the optional remote display you can locate it in a convenient location. It's about the size of a deck of cards and comes with a long wire that connects the display to the EMS.

I said "permanent" in quotes because many users describe installation methods that permit non-destructive removal should you sell your trailer. That allows moving it to the one.
