Style Name: EMS-PT30CSize: 30 Amps
After reading stories about RV owners experiencing a surge, low voltage or bad ground which seems to be the biggest problems; then the financial cost of the repairs, I bought one. With all the electronics in the RV plus the additional items like plugging in a lap top, cell phone, eBook reader, ice maker, etc...A low voltage, bad ground or surge could cost hundreds or thousands to replace or repair all the appliances and wiring; plus the protection of a possible "open ground" or "ground fault" that could lead to electrical shock and result in personal injury.

There are 2 major brands: Technology Research Corporation (TRC) Surge Guard and Progressive Industries. I had a TRC brand product for a couple of years and then I purchased a Progressive Industries product. The reason I bought a Progressive Industries product are as follows:
1. Made in U.S.A. (TRC not made in America)
2. Lifetime Warranty (TRC 1 year warranty)
3. Surge Indicator: If surge protection failure occurs within the system,
the Progressive product has a "Surge Indicator" that alerts you of the
system failure. (TRC does not have this; the TRC product will continue to
operate but provide no protection)
4. Open Ground Protection: If the pedestal is not ground properly your RV will still
operate but you and your RV become the ground; this is not safe
5. High/Low Voltage Protection
6. Time Delay for A/C Compressor
7. 3-Mode Surge Protection
8. Reverse Polarity Protection
9. Open Neutral Protection
10. AC Frequency Protection
11. Accidental 240V Protection
12. Built-in Lock Bracket: Allows the unit to be secured to the power source to prevent theft
13. Made in the U.S.A. and Lifetime Warranty

I purchased this Electrical Management System (EMS) back during the winter. I've used it every time we went camping. Two weeks ago I was at a State Park in Michigan and the (EMS) shut everything down. I was like what the heck! Then I thought, oh the (EMS) is doing it's job. I went to check to see what the error code was and it read low voltage was detected. Two minutes later every thing in the trailer kicked back on. I must stress!!!! If you camp and plug in, you must have this! I just got my Trailer last October. I would've been pretty upset if my electrical equipment have gotten fried! Also, the product is American made in North Carolina.

I know its a bit of an investment, but compare the features to other 'surge protectors' and feel confident that you are protecting your investment! Progressive Industries now backs this product with a lifetime warrantee! This unit constantly tests your shore-power for surges, low/high voltage, and cycles(hertz), and will interrupt power within nanoseconds of detecting a fault. It also has a delay to protect your a/c compressor(s). The display is easy to read and cycles between: voltage, amps, and cycles(hertz). Should an error or fault occur, it will restore power once the error or fault disappears, and store the last fault code in memory until you clear it. It is also weather proof and includes a locking ring. For the money this is the one.

We have used this little baby for about 20 camping trips, never a problem. Recently we stayed at an older campground that was being renovated. Plugged in the Progressive unit and the voltage was at about 112 volts. Pretty low. Plugged in the RV and set up camp. After a few minutes with the air conditioning on the progressive unit tripped. After a few minutes it reset. Then it popped again. I spoke to the manager of the campground and asked if I could plug in next door (no one was there). Also pretty low voltage. The campground had been dormant for about two years so we figured out that the contacts in the power pedestal were a little corroded and in some cases bugs had moved in. After plugging and unplugging the Progressive a few times I guess we knocked off enough crud to get better voltage. No more breaker trips for the rest of the trip.

Low voltage is worse than power spikes. It can really do a lot of damage to the expensive appliances in your RV. The Progressive box probably saved my wallet a lot of pain. Glad I bought it.

Purchased the 30amp model ( only has 825 Joule Rating ) for a 29 foot travel trailer February 2016. Face of unit has instructions for the possible light ( green, blue, red ) combinations and a operating guide for when the unit instructions fade. Surge protector has a limited lifetime warranty ( does not cover weather shield ) which is only good as the Company backing the product, and can only be tested after the unit has a problem.

This unit has a security tab of soft metal to secure with lock and chain, but I think it could be quickly defeated with a good lineman's pliers. Hardened steel would have been better. I used a 7' Kryptonite double loop cable and a Master lock to secure the unit against the fast grab thief, but this would not stop someone with bolt cutters.

A flip open weather shield is attached to the unit with 4 screws, a rubber gasket forms a seal between the unit and the weather shield. There is no gasket for the flip open shield and this might be a problem with rain or snow. It does have some rubber fingers on the bottom of the shield ( cord entry point ) called a splash guard to prevent rain from hitting the ground and splashing up into the unit.

Surge protector is 14.5" in length, 5" in width, and 5" in depth with the weather shield attached. The unit size fills the power pedestal and this prevents the door from properly closing. This allows sun, rain and snow to have direct contact with unit. The RV Park Manager said that I could cover it with a garbage bag, but I decided to protect the unit with a 12.00 Lowe's garbage can since the park needs to read and bill for power use. I can only hope that other Managers are so easy going.

This unit was shipped directly from the Company by FedEx in it's product box.
