I ordered the EMS-PT50C this past Friday, 4-27-2012, from CW. They had a good price and free shipping. It was advertised as to ship from manufacturer with a delivery time of 2-3 weeks. It was delivered today 5-1-2012. I couldn't believe it. Is this great service from both companies or what?

Now for the reason I bought this unit. It is installed and all is well with power this this site. I hope it stays that way, but I definitely feel better.

I thought the same thing when I looked at it initially. My guess is they went with a contactor over solid state because of the heat dissipation needed as well as the added cost. Actually don't mind that munch because they are pretty cheap and easy to find if it ever goes out.

We ordered the same EMS-LCHW30 from Camping World, got it today and it's installed thanks to all the posts on this forum. What we couldn't figure out is where the jumper is to remove for the delay. We rarely use A/C here in western Washington and haven't figured out if our A/C has a delay but would like to identify the jumper if we decide to remove it. What we did figure out right off is the plug we have used for our trailers the past few years has reverse polarity!

Just came back from our 1st dry camping trip with the Jayco + surge...needed to charge our batteries so powered up the generator and got an "open ground" error so no power to the trailer. Just starting to research to see if we are now unable to plug the trailer cord into the generator to charge up but does anyone know? We had a battery charger so moved the generator to the front of the trailer and charged them that way but prefer using the trailer cord. Thanks if you have any ideas!

Did you put the EMS into the bypass mode? I contacted Progressive Industries prior to purchasing mine posing the question of the "open ground" error when using the generator. They assured me that you can put the EMS into the bypass mode and you should receive power from the generator.

Didn't know there is a bypass mode. Don't remember seeing it in the little install brochure but will find out how to do that as our next planned trip is dry camping again. Thanks for the tip!

If you have the remote display it is the switch on the display. I believe the internal display unit has a blue jumper that bypasses it.

Clint was mentioning the delay jumper - in mine, it was white. I have mine set to long delay...I just feel like it is good extra protection no matter what the A/C delay time. I do get a little impatient waiting for the power to come on when I initially hook up...but worth it!
