As far as the switch to bypass the circuitry, is that a separate component or is that feature part of the standard surge protector?
I know it is needed with the Yamaha generators.
The by pass is a built in feature of the EMS from Progressive.

Just had a few mins to do a bit more research on this. The Honda, Yamaha and Champion brand inverter generators have the floating neutral. The EMS will not like this condition, throw an error code and not allow power through to the coach.

There are 2 ways around this from what I gather... first is to use the ground bonding plug insert in one of the 15A sockets which then ground bonds the 30A and you're good to go.

Second is to install the bypass switch (separate device) and just bypass the EMS altogether. Not sure which is best.

I have a hardwired 50A unit with remote switch and display. I simply by pass by switching the unit off. The unit is then not protected, but all my breakers are off except the converter 2x's a day to bring the batteries up. My main concern is in a CG where my unit has protected me numerous times and mostly on low voltage.

The ground neutral plug is another way to keep the unit on.

Genny in sig below.

Is your protector made by Progressive Industries?

I suppose that surge protection isn't really as necessary when hooked up to your own generator, right? I mean, how often do the new inverter generators put out bad power? (too high, too low, spikes, etc.)

I have not had an issue the few times I used it with this rig and the EMS. First rig did not have an EMS. I will rig a plug this season and see what the power output is. It's cheap and easy enough to do.

The whole point of the inverter genny is that they provide clean power for sensitive electronics. Though if you have a gas issue it could provide either low or high voltage.
