EMS-HW50C Install Sabre 36QBOK

So I decided to look at what kind of install time I'd be looking at for the new EMS. I pulled the panel since I don't have access through any of the entertainment cabinets.

Can anyone confirm that I just need to tap into the big black supply power cable (that is secured with the gray clip in the last photo) going into the back of this panel? There is enough slack to that wire that if I cut it I could just use both of the cut ends rather than using a pigtail to the panel. That way I also wouldn't have to rewire anything on the panel...

As a side note, I wondered where they had pulled the power for my vacuum system, but they just put a 110 plug on the back side of the panel and plugged it in there...

Ugh... any idea why it rotates some pictures 90 degrees? Even if I rotate it and save it before hand then it flips it 180...?

Be sure trailer is not plugged in. Then you should be able to cut that big black wire and put it in and out of the EMS. On mine I pulled the wires out of the control panel because I didn't have enough slack. Very simple to do.

That's it. I think you will find it easier to pull the cable out and attach it to the input of the ems and use a short piece from the hardware store to come from the output side to the panel. Working in that space will create issues with routing / installing the cable in the EMS.

Kenny - that does look like the way to go. I was in my basement and had decided to take off the panel in the center in order to access that area. I can't believe they aren't required to do some type of cable management and that they don't even try to clean up the shavings etc when they are done.

It is no wonder there is hardly and QC to these units, it would be almost impossible to find a problem by inspection unless you were trying to find the specific problem.
