Progressive Industries EMS-LCHW30 install review

I made a response to a post regarding power quality at CG's, being nieve I assumed all would be good at CG's. There were many responses in that thread that swayed me to want one, and research pointed me away from one that hung outside, and towards hard wired and a remote display, but I found this one for $190 and forwent the remote display.

I ordered an Progressive Industries EMS-LCHW30 last weekend and it came in today. I have already installed and can verify it works/is receiving clean power from an outlet in my garage. Very simple install, cut cables out a foot from the inverter, strip back 3" and connect trailer end to the load side and the cord/receptacle to the line in (my next mod, I bought a 50' 30 amp extension cord, $39.99! I will use with a receptacle on side of trailer). Couldn't of been any more simple.

Many might think it's overkill what I will do to my sport 8, but I got a good deal on it and will get a lot of use out of it. After the receptacle is some sort of ammeter, there are a few inexpensive ones on the eebay... Might put some sort of platform on front to hold another propane tank and 2nd battery

We have a Jayflight 24RBS. Found the water heater and I assume inverter under the refrigerator. There are two identical looking black cables under there. How do we tell which is the correct line to install the EMS, since there are no schematics in our owner info.

First, disconnect all power! It's no fun getting zapped (don't ask me how I know). When I installed mine under the frig, just disconnect the shore power wire from outside that runs into the inverter. Connect that wire into the EMS as instructed. Then run a short piece of 14/2 wire from EMS back into the inverter to the same terminals as originally installed.(hint: take pics from phone before you disconnect so you know what goes where) Easy install.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

I have a different model trailer but this is how I did mine.
