On our 23IKSS, I found the easiest place to install it was in the bathroom cabinet. There was plenty of slack wire to play with and plenty of room to work. I used plugs when installing it so it could be bypassed if it ever failed or when I sell the camper.

The display mounts on the front of the cabinet (upper left).

Here are all the possible error codes.

In addition to the error codes, it will also give you a constant readout of how many amps you are using. This is very helpful to manage your power load.
This was one of the very first mods I did and I'm very happy to not have to worry about power issues.

Ok so it can go pretty much anywhere or should it be right where power comes in behind back of plug and behind inverter?

Converter and inverter are 2 different things. Needs to go between land line and converter.

Yes I know, but on a 233s the power is on the driver side of camper. So I would assume it would have to go somewhere behind the inverter?

If that's an easy to access area. I was able to just cut the wires and insert. Had ample room behind mine. Didn't have to buy any wire.

Now you have a built in surge guard on a power cord.

That can walk away.

I wrap a locking cable around the pedestal in a way that there is no way to slip it off. At the most I will lose a power cord if they want to steal something. If they want the surge protector, they'll have to really work for it.

To secure mine I followed someone else's lead and use a lock out/tag out clamp that I can lock to a chain. It seems like if they want it they will have to cut the cord which of course I hope does not happen!
