Any suggestions or if you know the difference between the two , they both have the same Joule protection ..
The 34750 has LED lights to what is happening and the 34850 has a LED screen to inform you of the functions.

I got my new trailer set up today and started to dismantle it. Wanted to be sure I'd have the room for a hardwire unit before I pulled the trigger. Found tons of room, so I have the Progressive EMS with remote panel on it's way!

If you are using an inverter genny, be sure to seach the forum for a ground plug. PI's won't turn on unless you "trick it" for a true ground. At least that's what I had to do with our honda.

Smart decision. Nothing good comes from an electrical issue far from home. Minimize your potential issues equals HAPPY CAMPER!!
Enjoy!

Surge

Well, 16 moves in 47 years. NEVER a power surge.

1st RV (new) in 2011 in upscale resort in AZ, open neutral. fried micro, electric hot water ignition and inverter.

Moral of the story: perhaps RV parks are not the same electrical grid, regulated and monitored electrical feed as HUGE power companies with all sorts of built in protection to keep houses and buildings from devastation.

Ya think?' 😀

Electrical storm in Naples, Florida 2 years ago. Fried circuit board in A/C. Killed the thermostat. Blew a hole in the hot water tank thermostat. Ruined the breaker for the hot water tank. Destroyed the power converter. Battery died the next day. Guess who has a surge protector now.
