Progressive Industries EMSHW30C install

I finished with the install of the remote display in a good place and no wires showing.

Surge protector in the cabinet.

I had to cut the remote wire to get it through the hole for the outlet wiring in the cabinet. Eventually I will open up the bottom of the pantry for more storage.

I ran the remote wire down through the hollow wall of the pantry into the bottom. (above)

I tried to mount the remote mostly over the hole to hide it.

Nicely done! I just installed mine today and tried to keep visible wire to a minimum. It looks like I can actually pull some back into the cabinet a bit:

Nice job. Thinking of installing the same unit in my new 2703ws. Just need to figure out the best approach.

I just installed mine today. Took about 4 hours in total, how long did it take you?

I had the option to install the remote in the sewer compartment. This would have made it easy to read from the outside when hooking up the trailer to power. But I installed it inside figuring I will get more use out of it that way. Looks like you guys did the same.

This was my first mod, I'm super excited and can't wait to go out and see it in action. Well, not too much action!

Yeah, I think installing it outside would have been a mistake. When you first plug it in, it goes through a boot phase where 1) you don't get power through to your rig and 2) you don't get a "final" status reading until it's actually delivering power. This takes about 2 minutes so you'd be stuck there (or have to return) waiting for this to finish.

Also, if you were inside and suddenly lost power, you'd have to go outside to see the status code to figure out why. Of course you'd probably have to go outside to investigate the problem anyway but still...

I just made sure the display was not out in plain side since the constant blinking of the status would drive me crazy.

Tight Quarters

I plan on installing mine tomorrow IF I can make all of the connections thru the two slots left when I removed the drawers of the space where the power panel is.... Hope my arms are long enough and will bend the right direction to reach the power wire...
