Shoreline junction box

I am new to this forum process so I apologize if I'm doing this wrong. I have a 2015 Eagle 325BHQS. I purchased a EMS (electronic monitoring system) and going to install it myself. I haven't dug into it yet to locate where the wiring is located in the camper and wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction. I assume the shoreline power comes in and goes to a junction box then goes to the main panel?? Where is that junction box and how do I access it?? I greatly appreciate the assistance.

The shore power line comes into the back of the main breaker....at least it was on my north point. Disconnect the main wiring from the breaker and put the end into the EMS. Then get yourself a short piece of 6/3 wire to run from the EMS to the breaker. This way you donít have to cut you shore power line and if you sell your trailer, simple to put back to stock and take EMS with you

No junction box on my 2017 Eagle 293RKDS. Ran straight into the transfer switch. Than to the breaker panel. No junction boxes at all. I put mine between the shore line and transfer switch.

While it'll add cost, installing a pair of connectors and plugs to the EMS in / out side and also shore power cable after cutting it gives you flexibility. Twist lock style.

I did this on my TT and love it. Not havingnro try and shove the power cord back into the little cord holder is awesome. Well worth the money.
