The autoformer is a line conditioner and needs to read the low and high on the line supply to function. As such, with an autoformer there's no need to have low/high voltage protection, and the Hughes I know have surge protection. You could certainly used the protections against open neutral or ground, reverse polarity, and 240V, so one of the PI's Smart Surge Protectors might be a good fit. Drop PI an email: they response quickly.

For the sake of discussion, what is everyone's opinion on hard wired VS portable? I've read enough to see that I want a progressive industries (EMS) unit for our new trailer but I'm having a tough time deciding if I want hard wire or portable. Thoughts?

THEFT and plain ole forgetting it. Another is having to do with non std pedastal and not enough clearance. Another is wrestling it and plugs in pouring rain.

We didn't feel we would know how to properly wire a hardwired and the hardwired were more expensive. Also the portable can be easily used in more than one rig if you trade trailers.

Basically the major pros to hardwired is set and forget and theft protection.

The major pros to the plug in is being able to check the pole without plugging in the whole trailer and portability to from trailer to trailer.

Though most of the hardwired guys will tell you the hardwired's just as portable. Several have even installed theirs with plugs on the cords making them easy to pull out.

I've got the portable for mine, since I knew what I have is just a starter trailer and I'll be upgrading eventually. Don't know what I'll do if ever upgrade to a 50A rig. Might hardwire, might not. We'll see when I get there.
