At-a-boy fpr Progressive industries EMS and watch out for WEN generators

This is my setup. Just bought them last week. Cheap units, have the ability to parallel, can use elsewhere, quiet as the expensive brands, I can lift into the bed by myself and should run both A/C's.



$1223.00 for both including the parallel kit...otd.[/QUOTE]



CAUTION!!!!!!!

I recently purchased these generators and THANKS TO my Progressive industries EMS I discovered that the Chinese factory worker who wired my generators and the Parallel kit wired the L5-30 recepticals with reverse polarity. As soon as I attempted to power my camper through this particular plug the EMS shut off the power and produced an error code.

Plugs wired backwards were these:




I contacted the local distributor I purchased from and informed them of the problem. They looked into it at their end and called me back thanking me for discovering this. They pulled several generators out of their stock and found the same problem with them.

They offered to correct the blunder ASAP at their center but I opted to open the panel and correct it myself. 1/2 hour later I had correctly wired generators........ Yay China!

Another reason for anyone thinking they do not need a PI EMS.
Thanks for the info.

Good catch. Whoa, what is your bed liner made out of? My take says it looks like clean indoor-outdoor. What is it?

Love the bed rugs, I've had them in my last 2 trucks. They were under camper shells though, I always wondered how they would hold up out in the elements getting wet and then drying back out.

99% of the time my truck bed is covered by the toneau so I cannot actually say how the BedRug would stand up to the elements and regular pickup type loads.

With the light weight Andersen Hitch my truck bed transforms to this:



In about 5 minutes.
