Finished the install. Made a Black cable for the monitor and re-routed it. Looks great and I like the remote display location.

No one will ever notice the sub of wire under there! Very nicely done!

I see you have a 30amp service, is the 50amp wired the same way? That's a great location and write-up!! Thanks.

Basically yes, but you'll have an extra wire on a 50Amp connection.

Thank you, I was debating about getting a hard wired or the plug in style. I was a little intimidated by the hardwire install. This made it look rather easy. This is on the short list now. Nice work and thank you for the share

Nice job. I think I'm going to go hardwired with the next camper.

I ordered one for my 29.5BHDs yesterday. 50 amp model. This spot does make the most sense. I have seen some installs done near the converter, but this seems to be the spot. The remote panel is what I have on my mind. Not sure where I want it. I'd like to get it near the power and usb at the counter area but that would require some snaking, unless I put it near the converter. Once I get it, I will post some pictures of my install, seeing it will be 50amp

This is no question the best place for the surge protector. I did mine yesterday. One thing I will add. If you have 50 amp service, expect to have to muscle the wires as they are very thick and rigid. I'm thinking 6 gauge wire so its not forgiving at all.

Dave, does your surge protector hum? I can hear mine in while sitting on the couch.
