Looks great ……. you got spoiled with such an easy spot to mount it. Our first trip out after installing ours, it dropped us off the campground grid 6 times in the first 24 hrs. for low voltage. I guess ignorance was bliss for me, pre EMS.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I slept better last night knowing it was installed. Just this past weekend while at home, plugged into the garage, our area got a brownout. I unplugged it right away to be safe.

This weekend we're camping off grid, so it won't really matter but Im so happy knowing I have it now.

There is no need to unplug it when you see there are problems with the power - that's the job of the EMS. It will keep your trailer disconnected from power until it feels it is safe. Just leave it plugged in and let it do it's job

Sorry, this was before I installed it.

Good advice. One situation where I'd consider unplugging the trailer is in a thunderstorm, if there are lightening strikes in the vicinity. While the EMS will probably protect the trailer in the event the campground or house were hit, the EMS is going to be destroyed by the lightening. Both Sure-Guard and Progressive specifically exclude lightening strikes from their "lifetime warranty".

So, it may be a good idea to be "pro-active" and protect the EMS from lightening rather than install a new one after the strike...... YMMV
