To remove the power center did you just take out the 4 screws in the corners and could pull it out far enough to be out of the way to get behind it?
If only it had all the screws from the factory...

The factory did make the unit I worked on easy though with plenty of slack in the wiring! I was able to pull it a foot out of the opening. Couldn't help myself and tidied up the wiring rat's nest with some zip tie work before putting in back in with all needed screws!

Voltage meter vs Progressive Surge Protector.
2 yrs ago spent the winter in an upscale indian owned rv resort.
Plugged in BAM. Bad!
Called emergency number and a chief electrician was dispatched to check out my issue. BAM. No indication of elec flow and interruption, open neutral per METER.
Called mobile rv repair next morning.
BAM. Open neutral in post.
Took out our micro and unknowingly weakened my inverter ( later replaced at my cost) Resort replaced my microwave and paid for service call.
SOLUTION: buy the Progressive Surge Guard with lifetime warranty!
Just say'n !
I have one on order for the new unit!

Make sure you get the one with the display screen, it's so good to see and know what's going on at all times.

Isn't the S&P tech heavy? Would you prefer a 1 year warranty?

Any kind of electronic device still under warranty after 18 years is pretty good.

Well...we'll see if they break the magic 18 -- that will happen next year. (They started business in 1998). Given their product and how many RV'ers depend on it, I suspect they will in business well past 2026

You might ask a Canadian that is attending the rally in Goshen to pick you up one and when he go's back up there to ship it to you, other then that your going to pay throw the nose for one being shipped. Might work out. Good Luck

I like our hard wire 50amp Progressive it gives me peace of mind wherever we plug in and when it's storming out. Never a issue yet. I will take it with me if we sell the rv. LOL

I just received my Portable 50 AMP EMS Saturday. I ordered it from RV Safety for 315.00 free shipping. So I just now when to their web site and added one to my CART and plugged in Canada, I couldn't believe it, $708.95 shipping charge which brings the total $1023.95. That's crazy.

UPDATE:
http://www.technorv.com/ is the place to try as Silverbackmel suggested for example it's $310.00 and $44.00 shipping for the Portable Outdoor 50A Electrical Protection System(Progressive Industries EMS-PT50C) to Alberta
