Spike, thanks. Your url is the very same photo I was looking at when saving the faulty url. Confusing. You are right, though. You can't even read the model number at the page I ended up sending folks to. Must have screwed up somewhere. I'll save your url for when our new trailer comes in.

Hi there... Yes. Their pictures can be confusing at times.

For more details (from TRC - makers of Surge Guard devices), surf:

30A "hard wire" = http://www.trci.net/products/surge-g...s/30a-hardwire

50A "hard wire" = http://www.trci.net/products/surge-g...s/50a-hardwire

Their differences??? 50A has 4 x LEDs on their front panel and 4 x Wires (Red, Black, White and Ground). The 30A only has 3 LEDs on their front panel and only have wires (Black, White and Ground).

When purchasing, one must always select the appropriate model - for their RVs/TT main panel configuration. Or, the appropriate model based on its Power Cord wires.

I hardwired my 30 amp one in so it could not be stolen... at the same time I changed the cord to a "plug in" style.

Spike, was I just lucky on my surge guard unit, because I didn't know it was to be model specific, just a 30 amp job? Or does one size pretty much fit all? I will be buying another for our new Jayco Eagle 320 RLDS, so your info is appreciated. I did check price with the dealer and it was over 500 installed, but if memory serves, we paid just under 200 and another 70 for installation. Of course, I don't know what brand the dealer had in mind. And while I'm picking your brain, is the surge guard model we've discussed here inferior to or less than what I've seen called ems units? If so, is it a whistle and bells difference or a more substantial difference?
