And I put felt pads on the back so it wouldn't mark the wall as it rocks.

One more BTW.. It was on clearance and then 50% off that. Like $3.50 at the dollar store.

How about a piece of velcro......half on the clock and the other half on the wall. That way the clock won't slide back and forth at all.

Final checkout, fridge is cold, runs on LP, fresh tank drained and refilled, flushed out the water lines, vacuumed, figured out a way to run the camper off my inverter (Turn on the TV without firing up the generator or running a cord from the inverter to the TV.)

EMS-HW50C

I installed a Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C... and, yes, my neck is sore from lying on the floor and doing the installation through the furnace air return grate hole! I didn't finish the task of mounting the unit on a wall in the catacombs. For the life of me, I cannot decipher the instructions to "Set time delay jumper on the circuit board. The factory setting is for 15 seconds. Remove jumper to set to 136 seconds." It seems like it's telling me to make a choice (OK, I can do that) and do something (what?, how?). It doesn't help that 'Picture B' shows an arrow pointing a "Time Delay Jumper". I don't see nuthin'.

I installed mine last week. Kept giving me "open ground code". I called the help line and after trouble shooting everything I need to pull it back out and send it back for another one.
The help line was great. Good people. I was satisfied with the tech assistance. Good luck

Seems like they might not be worth it for the price if two of you are having issues, be curious to know if they work better then using a surge protector at the CG, but I have 30amp service not 50 in my RV

What did you do to your camper today?

My inability to understand a couple of installation instructions cannot be viewed as an operational quality "issue".

Mr Dan, I left mine at the factory setting and it's been great. I plug in, not worrying about turning the campground breaker off, and after 15 seconds the microwave beeps and I check the remote. Good to go. Love it

Two of my camping buddies also have the same Progressive system. They like them , that's why I got one. Me taking it out and sending back is not that big a deal. Few screws , put it back in the box and send it off.I wouldn't hesitate buying another one or any Progressive product. Stuff happens and their customer support was great and they back their product 100%.

Ok good to know they support their stuff but how hard are they to install, I am technical and good with wiring and electronics as I am in the IT industry

Thanks, J&T. That helps me know I made the right decision but my puzzlement came from the two active verbs in the instruction: "Set" and "Remove" which implies I must take some action even to leave it at factory settings. I will proceed with the ASSumption that I have no action to take.

[I did send the question to PI through their Contact Us function.]

I'm no electrician and never messed around with anything electrical except for the occasional ceiling fan replacement and such.
The installation is cut and dry. Find a place in line with you power source between the plug on the trailer and your breaker panel. Cut the power cable where you find a spot to mount it. Instructions are simple , attach the wires in line in box matching your colors. The hardest part was attaching the wires in the box cause it's heavy gauge wire. Took me about 2 hrs from start to finish. I took my time.

Installed a 2.7 Cubic foot refrigerator under the countertop. The area was intended to be a desk area but we never used it as such. Now we have extra room for soda and beer. The antenna amplifier was under the countertop so rather than move it I installed a Wineguard RFL-332 sensor pro.

The refrigerator is secured to a plywood base and the base is secured to the floor. That should keep it from bouncing around. If it sufferes from heat buildup I will install an electronic cabinet cooler from coolguys. It has a temperature sensor which turns on the fan at around 86* and turns off around 81*.

Pulled the RV to Discount Tire here in town and had the Chinese Trail Express taken off and Thailand made Maxxis tires installed with steel valve stems and balanced with the TP monitors installed. Now we are ready for any trip.
