advantages of a hardwired Electrical Management System (EMS) unit over a pole/portable, other than theft risks

For $ 330 I bought a Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C. Ill let you know how the install goes, but it looks pretty strait forward - that's for the feedback

Just for info, There is another thread very similar to this named Surge Protector that was started about a week before this one.

There may be some helpful info as well as duplicate info also.

Volvite- So after some research I went with the progressive, hard wired with remote display. Price, Features, JOF support and user reviews all lined up to be the right choice. I'm pretty handy, so I chose to go hard wired versus post mount

Let us know what you choose to do

Thanks for the feedback. I too would like to hard wire one as well. How difficult is this process? While I'm not an expert electrician, I do most of my own auto repairs and work around the house. Just not sure where to start and install an EMS unit if and when I get one.

Thanks again everyone for your input.

Yup, it's manageable if you are "handy-guy" oriented. I also have one of the Progressive remote display units. Hard part was bending the thick wires where I wanted em. I forget the wire guage I bought but it was suggested in the install manual. Scope out where you will install and estimate the additional wire length you will need. I got mine at Lowes. Buy 2 extra feet unless the run is straight (or make another trip to the hardware store like me).
