Thanks.

I have never had one, as we usually dry camped in the motorhomes at the drag strip. When we did go to campgrounds, it was almost always ocean lakes in Myrtle Beach and I didn't worry much about their power. However, we now plan to take the Sandpiper to more parks (and more often) so I will be getting on. I will wait until I get it so that I can figure out how difficult it will be to wire in the hardware version and mount it.

The hard wired is my preference.... Just need to see how and where it fits.

Easy to wire in.....get the 50 amp one, if you have the 30 amp system now....if you update to a 50 later (rv), take it with you....if you use plugs on each end of wiring. And get the digital read-out

Did you guys go with the remote display? If so, where did you mount the display?

I'm gonna go ahead and order one today... Need to order a new torque wrench to keep in the truck for the Andersen anyway.

No idea yet where I will put the remote display but I got it. Actually got mine on eBay from CampingConnection. They have a website as well but he had the 50A one for 300.44 and there was a code at the time to get $20 off from eBay. Arrived in just a couple of days.

This is a rear kitchen model, so mine went next to the power center under fridge, next to co sensor

That 50amp works correctly in the 30? I am looking for 30 progressive eEMS for my Roo but will go to a UL 5er in the next year so if I put a 50 in my Roo which is 30 that is going to work right?
