Jayflight 25RKS G2 Hardwired Surge Protector

Can anyone give me instructions for installing a hardwired surge protector? I do electrical wiring at home and would like to install one on my TT. Not sure how to access shoreline cable. Any ideas or pictures appreciated.

There is access under the fridge.....Looking to the rear is the cable coming from outside terminatinf into a juntion box. This is probably where to put the surge protector...My guess of course
I really like this floor plan and have made some changes
Moved the TV out of the upper cabinet, addes draw under seats,replaced the stereo with Jensen 975 so the TV sounds through the main speaker
Have PICS if interested

What year is your rig...mine is a 2006 so may be different

I installed the EMS-HW30C Progessive Industuries Surge Protector (hardwire) in my 2013 26 BH after I purchased it. It was the first mod I did to the TT. I pulled out the circuit breaker panel box below the fridge (or where ever yours is located) and installed it in the space behind it. I had to loosen a few wire hold downs from the floor/deck for more slack to allow the panel to pull forward out of the way some more so I could have some more room to work with. I secured mine to a vertical panel at the back of the opening. All I had to do was cut the shore power cable and connect it to each side of the Surge Protector (the one installed had a specific side for the breaker side and pedestal end of the cord). Just ensure when you cut the shore cable you leave enough on the trailer/circuit breaker side to be able to maneuver the Surge Protector to secure it. It took about an hour--only do the fact it is a bit of a tight space. The actual wiring was very simple and the instructions for the device I installed were very easy to follow. Sorry I did not take any pics. It was my first mod and I was excited to get it done and forget about taking them.
