They didnt explain how it happened and I would not have expected they would. My concern was that it was showing 5 volts too low, which would have it cut off way too soon. Maybe I am just a little too picky - I measured mine with a calibrated Fluke true RMS meter.

In Progressives defense, I have heard nothing but glowing reviews from everyone that has had one and that they are very good at fixing and replacing anything that goes wrong. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt on this one and hope this was just an anomaly.

I always bench test things like this before I install them if I can. Again, I am super picky and want my stuff 100% so maybe it is a little overboard - but also goes with the tinkering gene I have.

Is the hard wired system any better than just using the TRC surge protection power cord that you just plug in? That sure is a lot simpler and is supposed to do the same thing at about 1/3 the cost.

The Progressive EMS does a lot more than surge protection -- it shuts down in the event of under or over voltage, reverse polarity, or bad neutral. It also comes with an optional display that shows voltage, amps, frequency, and error codes.

Basically you just plug the camper in and it will analyze the power and then turn on if OK. You no longer have to get out your meter and line checker to verify the pedestal before you plug in.

You'll need to do some research. The Progressive Industries version protects against low voltage, surges, reverse polarity, accidental 220V plug in and about everything that can go wrong with shore power. I think the ones that plug into the pedestals are only surge protectors. It's also easier for the plug-ins to grow feet and walk off. I can guarrantee that when I sell my trailer, my EMS unit goes with me.
