Awesome! So cool to see so many new buyers of the 36qbok. It's a great model for our growing family. We thought we were good with the 34 BH TT but quickly found as they grew so did our need for more, and separate spaces.

Congrats on your new 5er! Can't wait to pick ours up.

Thanks for the welcome! We are just south of Pitt...so I'm sure your Cincy snow will be coming our way!

Too bad mother nature didn't cooperate, but good things come to those that wait!

Question. Anyone using surge protection on your rigs? I have a portable 30A now for the old TT. Was wondering how difficult it would be to put in a hardwired unit from progressive industries, EMS-LCHW50C?

Any of you do this yet?

I have the SurgeGuard hardwired 50A to go in when I take delivery. I plan to
install it either under stairs, behind the subwoofer, or go thru the basement if necessary. i prefer to have it where it can be seen. There's pics in the link in my sig of the one i installed in my last unit. Do not install these units on there back, as the instructions say not to, and that's the way my dealer installed my original 30A one, and I originally did the 50A that way, until a member on another forum saw my pics and pointed it out.

Please document the process with steps and instructions. :-) I want to add one.

Sure thing. It's really a 1 maybe 2 beer mod....just depending on where your panel is, and what you have to do to get to it.

I wish I could measure things in just 1 or 2 beers! I'm not handy in the slightest! Everything takes me a while and multiple trips to the home improvement stores.

My panel is under my fridge...

Yes! This would be so helpful. I'm handy, but not an electrician. I can follow directions too, just ask my DW.

To be honest, I don't think it's going to be that hard, I'm just more concerned with where to tap in and cut the existing wire. I'll be looking for your mod review on this one.

Consider yourself lucky 'cause then it's a 3 or 4 beer job .

Our unit has arrived at the dealer!! Planning on PDI on 2/16. Hey mhuffs..are you scheduled to pick up your's this weekend? If so, and you get a chance, take a look at mine and let me know how she looks..I noticed the dealer has my unit on thier inventory web site without pics, not listed as "pending sale" or "sold"....just "call for show price" and "make an offer"....does that sound typical? Since I custom ordered and they are holding my earnest money I think they should at least list it as a pending sale.
