I installed my HW30C the other day in my IKSS. I decided to put in the bathroom cabinet. It was tight because the cord itself didn't give you much leeway for error. I just ordered some plug ends and am going to re-install the unit - I wish I saw those pictures first... The time delay comes preset for 15 seconds and it suggests a change to 136 second if your AC unit does not have a built in time delay. I looked through the AC documentation but did not see if it comes with its own delay. Do any of you know if the Roo units have a time delay built in?

More then likely your stat has a time delay in it only, one thing to remember, if you lose 110v and and your A/C is on, your time delay will not work from the stat. It's fed from the 12 volt side. So if your power went off and started 15 sec later again your Compressor would short cycle on you, because your stat was still calling for cooling, more then likely you would go into LRA on the compressor.Your EMS will protect from that, set the time delay to max mins...

I was also able to easily unplug it and move it to my new Roo!
this is basically what I did.

Haha, on this forum, you'll get a lot of arguments about what's the best model WDH, truck, etc. But honestly, you'll be hard pressed to get a better protector than a Progressive Industries Electrical Management System. More expensive than surge protectors, but has a lifetime warranty and covers you for so much more than just surges. Hared wired or removable, that's your choise.

You will be fine with a 30 AMP model, unless you want to upgrade in the future.
