They "try" to up the power output if it drops below the established levels. They cannot, and do not, "generate" additional current/voltage above/beyond the limits of the input power from anything I've ever read or researched.

What about the Hughes autoformer? Anyone use it? Seems this might be a better, all be more expensive way to go.
I leave my pup in the trailer all the time when we leave for a bit. My EMS doesn't just shut down power "because". I've never had it cut power when we've been gone - and we have left for 3-4 hours. On the other hand, puppy is not going to die, or get uncomfortable, for the length of time we leave her....and we love her as much as we love our kids. If your EMS is cutting off your power that often and for that long whoever is supplying your power needs to correct it.

Thanks for letting me know how the Hughes works. Iíve been working on understanding AC for the last few years. I took me a solid sit down and think to figure out Ohms.

I havenít bought the EMS yet. Iíve just heard they can stop if voltage drops and was concerned about AC kicking off and not kicking back on. Iíve just been running 1 AC and spending more time in our friends home.

Yuma is a conundrum. Iím told they have 100k permanent residents, and another 100k that winter, but they do not have big RV parts store. Foothills is small and they have good repairs it seems. I would think they would have a camping world or something big. No one in town has an EMS. Was looking for a progressive, Foot hills had the surge, but not the low voltage. Iíll wait till Iím home to get one and wire it in.

Thanks for all the input and explanations.

Justin, I failed to answer one of your key questions; "does it turn back on?" Yes, when the failed condition is corrected the unit restores power.

Depending on the length of time you are going to be away you could possibly order the EMS online?? I'm sure Amazon and other outlets sell them.
