To remove the power center did you just take out the 4 screws in the corners and could pull it out far enough to be out of the way to get behind it?
If only it had all the screws from the factory...

The factory did make the unit I worked on easy though with plenty of slack in the wiring! I was able to pull it a foot out of the opening. Couldn't help myself and tidied up the wiring rat's nest with some zip tie work before putting in back in with all needed screws!

Voltage meter vs Progressive Surge Protector.
2 yrs ago spent the winter in an upscale indian owned rv resort.
Plugged in BAM. Bad!
Called emergency number and a chief electrician was dispatched to check out my issue. BAM. No indication of elec flow and interruption, open neutral per METER.
Called mobile rv repair next morning.
BAM. Open neutral in post.
Took out our micro and unknowingly weakened my inverter ( later replaced at my cost) Resort replaced my microwave and paid for service call.
SOLUTION: buy the Progressive Surge Guard with lifetime warranty!
Just say'n !
I have one on order for the new unit!

Make sure you get the one with the display screen, it's so good to see and know what's going on at all times.

Who's lifetime? Yours or their's? The average company on the S&P now a days lasts less than 18 years

Isn't the S&P tech heavy? Would you prefer a 1 year warranty?

Any kind of electronic device still under warranty after 18 years is pretty good.

Well...we'll see if they break the magic 18 -- that will happen next year. (They started business in 1998). Given their product and how many RV'ers depend on it, I suspect they will in business well past 2026
