Thank you. I've edited my post to include the Pix.

From the looks of your pictures, the EMS "may" just replace that junction box. Having the integrated display may not be that big a draw back. Most of the time the EMS just does its thing in the background. If you got the remote display, the wire for that is like telephone quad wire, and could be fished through some small spaces.

Yeah, it will be replacing the box. Theres no way for me to phish that wire from the rear of the trailer down the side to where I'd like the remote display to be. Besides, all I'd have to do is open the door below the sink to read the integrated display when needed.

Thank you guys for your advice. I've got the EMS installed.







And there is a little more room for storage.

That looks great! Hey - you even got a little bit of floor space back!

Yeah, just a wee bit. Never the less any amount helps. Thanks for pushing me to the EMS unit instead of the cheaper solutions I was considering.

Is it normal for this unit to have a slight hum?

Yes, the hum is normal. There is a contactor in there, which is basically just a big relay. It relies on a magnetic coil to energize the relay - thus the slight hum. I noticed it at first, but quickly got used to it and dont even think about it anymore.

Hey - that is perfectly legitimate question even for experienced people! 99% of folks will never see or know what a contactor is. They are commonly found in home AC Condensers units (The outside unit) and in commercial applications. It is what makes the loud "snap" sound whenever the unit turns on. It is also a common part that goes out when the service man comes. The arching every time it turns on/off over time can wear out the electrical connections - but fear not - your EMS only has a fraction of the turn on/off cycles. If you do ever have to replace it, they are like $10. What you are paying for in the EMS is the circuit boards and their development costs (oh - and a little profit for them - but thats ok - It is made in the USA!)
