PI EMS getting a workout

Been staying at the KOA near Lake Placid, NY and last week came back twice to discover the power had been cut to the trailer with an E4 code (voltage below 104v).

Today thereís been an influx of new arrivals and it was pretty warm. The EMS has cut power 4 times this afternoon due to low voltage from all the people running A/C.

This is the first time the EMS has kicked in since buying it over a year ago and staying at multiple parks around the US. I guess itís doing its job. Just annoying.

I just left a park in Oklahoma. 117 on one leg 100 on the second. They moved us.

This seems to really be a supply vs demand issue. With a mostly-empty park the EMS reads 120v. As more folks hook up it drops more and more.

Had this happen at the Kentucky Hors e park. If you are a 30 amp trailer and have a 50-30 dog bone, try the 50 amp service. It may not be as heavily used. Worked for me in Kentucky...

Only 30 amp at this site. Not a big deal, this is our last night here (been here a week and this is the only time itís been a problem while weíve been in the trailer). I do have a 50 -> 30 dogbone so if we have 50A available and have issues then Iíll give that a shot.

Which park if you don't mind saying? I'm going to an Okie park in a couple of weeks.

Thanks. I'm not going that far.


My PI EMS shut my system down MANY times at West Burns Run COE park on Lake Texoma. I had 138v AC at the pedestal. They sent campers home and closed the park - had high water up in a power distribution unit.
