if only 2 pair of 50amp plugs wouldn't cost almost as much as the PI unit

I got 5ft. And just pulled the origonal wire out of the breaker box. Little trick, use the original end as a reference to cut the ends varying lengths so it goes in the breaker box easier.

30A portable

Just ordered the 30A portable Surge Guard tonight from CW along with a few other goodies for the TT.
They included the Locking Hasp for free in the purchase. A $18.79 savings on their website.
Let's see how long the stuff takes to get to my door.

hope you aren't in a hurry for it. They are cheaper than anybody right now with their sale prices. I was all ready to check out on their website till I saw "ships directly from manufacturer. Allow 4-6 weeks for delivery". For about $15 more, Amazon had it to me in a day and a half.

Surge-Guard question

Thinking of pulling the trigger on the new 34750. This may seem obvious but not to me. Can you take the unit to a pedestal and just plug it in to check the power? Everything I read says to plug in the RV cable but if you just wanted to check several pedestals can you plug it in without the RV cord attached? Do you have to wait the 128 seconds to get a good/bad condition reading. My thinking is don't even think about hooking up the rig until power is checked.


Thanks

I like to plug mine in and let it go thru the test check before I bother to drag the power cord out, that way if I need to move all I have to do is unplug Sergey and move.

I have a hardwired 50 PI ems. I did like Turbs and added cord ends to my wiring so I can take it out quickly and easily when/if the time comes. I figured $400 on a $35000 camper wasn't so bad and I like that the Sabre cannot get plugged in without the protection for those times DW or my DD's help. It has saved(possibly anyways) me from faulty wiring or bad outlets four times in a little over a year. All were simple fixes which I completed for the park's, with their permission. I'm not a licensed electrician but am a maintenance guy and have a fair understanding of electrical. Bottom line, get a EMS, whether hardwired or portable.
