Progressive 50 amp EMS install
Another item in my mods for 2015 is install a Progressive 50 amp EMS / surge protector. I wanted to place the unit in a location where I could easily access it, should an item need replacing. In my Coachman 360IBL the 50 amp service is accessible underneath the stairs. I freed up enough slack in the service line to mount it there without adding additional wire.
50 AMP SERVICE LINES ARE A PAIN!!! Super stiff, difficult to cut, etc.
Picture 1: Take off the 2nd step vertical front cover. Service line can be found here.
Picture 2: I've cut the service line.
Picture 3: Ready to install.
Picture 4: Inbound lines ready.
Picture 5: Location under stairs.
Picture 6: Fully mounted and ready EMS.
Picture 7: Bunkhouse remote head unit. I attempted to run the cable through the wall but there is a board that prevented this. I ran the wires externally in the bunk room. I wanted the doors to properly close around the remote head which required me to recess the mount. I liked the idea of the remote head easily accessible, but yet not flashing bright lights all the time. This location allows me to close the doors. I also added a battery voltage monitor.
Picture 8: Remote head. (I'm going to take the white caulking off because it turned out horrible)
