We've owned 2 Progressive EMS units over the last 4-ish years. A 30A pole mount and a 50A hard wired. IMHO the EMS is worth the extra cost. Comparing its cost against that of the TT is how I convinced myself to buy. To me it's like a TPMS, everyone should have one. Progressive's customer service is excellent and both units I've owned have performed flawlessly.

Both the Progressive PT30C and PT50C (as well as their hard wired versions) turn off power to your rig when they detect a situation that is outside their set parameters. When the hazard is gone they reset and restore power. They also have a 2 1/2 minute delay before they pass power at every start up. This is important if you have a brief power outage that comes right back on. You don't want your a/c compressors to be re-energized immediately so this is another safety for your "stuff".

I absolutely will not plug in anywhere without my PT50C and I have a spare still in the box if my primary one ever has to go back to the factory for service/repaid/warranty. Yes, it has a lifetime warranty.

I use a EMS, but I run that first off the pedestal and into a Hughes Autoformer. I would not camp w/o the Autoformer. So many times low voltage is what will fry your electronics. The EMS disconnects me if the voltage is in the danger zone, but the Hughes keeps my voltage 'healthy' even when its close to the danger zone.

Currently between RV's, and it might stay that way !
