I hard wired mine in my rear storage compartment under my lower bunk and ran the remote display right into my trailer. It was where the junction box of my incoming 30 amp service and the house wiring was located so it made sense to me. I basically just eliminated the junction box and replaced it with the EMS. That was of course after moving it to a much better location - specifically one that was not directly under a water valve!

Just a note... a person with a pair of wire cutters and a spare 3-prong power cord need not buy anything at all.

I took an older computer power cable, cut it off a few inches from the 3-prong connector, spliced the neutral and ground together, then tied the wires off with wire caps and wrapped it all in tape so nothing would come apart.

Hooked up my 2 Honda generators to the trailer for the first time yesterday, worked like a charm.

I love turning gasoline into cold air... :P

I simply put mine in the rear storage where the 50A cable enters the trailer.

I didn't even bother to mount it, really. With the 50A wires going in and out of it, it's not moving much anyway.

I do recommend NOT cutting the existing 50A cable, just disconnect it from the receptacle and use NEW 50A cable between the EMS and the receptacle. There was barely enough wire for my install and it was a serious pain in the neck due to the short lengths I left myself with.

X2 on Fire_Instructor. Put mine behind the fuse panel/power converter.

It's going to depend on the model and year of your RV - each floorplan is different.
