Progressive EMS saved me again.....

Camped at a local state park a couple of weekends ago. Power kicked off. Error code 4- low voltage. This park has 50A service. One leg was reading 120V and the other was hovering just over 100V, prompting the EMS to shut off power. The EMS killed power probably 10 or 12 times that day. I'm wondering what type of damage some of the other campers got that may not even be apparent yet- as in shortened life of components. I think that the park, which only has 13 RV sites, has all of the pedestals wired in such a way that anyone running 30A pulls power from the same leg. Pretty much everyone there besides us was running on 30A. If the park would swap half of the 30A plugs to run on the other leg it would quickly and easily solve the issue.

If your EMS Dumped power (12) times while your A/C was running it cant be good for the A/C either? Youroo!!

Had A/C turned off most of the time. Was attempting to use the microwave which apparently kept dragging voltage below the min voltage the EMS would allow. I'll take that any day of the week over running my entire camper on low voltage. The EMS has a delay before it turns power back on, so it's not like it's just quickly cycling off and on.
