Given that you bought the "integrated display" unit, I agree with CW that it has to be mounted in a visible place. I can't judge whether or not that price is reasonable for what they're having to do. How much would they want to install the EMS-HW50C?

My guess is that you'd be better off to use the one with the remote display, for hopefully a cheaper install. (They should at least let you return the LCHW for the HW.)

This is certainly the way to go.

If we mount it by the transfer switch, it will be hidden behind a wall and you will have zero access. So the tech needs to run wire from the transfer switch, to a place where it would be accessible to the human eye and not hidden away. The cost to install it is $423.00. We did not want to proceed unless we had authorization from you. Is this possible?????
That's a lot of $$$$ for an install?????
I installed mine below my transfer switch and as you can se ethe panel is still visiable from the open compartment.

Iggy, nice setup.
I just got my EMS in the mail last week from Tweetys. I looked at the compartment in my 337F and there's a bunch of relocating to do before the PI 50 will fit in there. FR spread stuff out so I have to move the boxes around.

Bogey, not knowing what unit you have, that does seem a bit excessive. Perhaps you could ask a member in your area to help you install it? If you're in or near NE Ohio, I'd be glad to.

We have a 2013 silverback 29re. CW said they have to install a whole new 50 amp service to accommodate?????... I'm trying to get the remote shipped overnight..we leave on a trip 5/3.
