Pd ems

Our PD EMS showed a fault recently ( Over Voltage )
The EMS display showed the voltage level at 131 VAC
The manual shows a trip level of 132 VAC
I checked the voltage at the pedestal with my Fluke multimeter and it indicated a voltage level of 126 VAC ( The meter was recently calibrated )
There were several other trailers in that same campground loop with EMS systems and none of them were showing high voltage nor did they trip.
Is there an adjustment on the PD EMS to correct this issue ?

Steve,
I suggest you contact Progressive with that question, if the answer is not in the manual. Their customer service is top notched.

Steve, here is the page on fault codes and what to do.
Rv Surge Protection | United States | Progressive Industries, Inc. | Troubleshooting.
For yours it sounds like a warranty replacement might be required.


They are fairly easy to work with. I had one of the portable units and it faulted and a new one was in my hands in less than a week.
And shortly after they came out with a new version that did not have the problem that faulted mine. (rain)

My thanks to both Jim and Wetzk . After doing some reading / research it appears the EMS is defective
I sent an E-Mail to PD with a description of the problem , when I get an answer back I will post the results

Steve: You really got an Escape?! I thought you got a stick built to supplement the Casita. I want to see pictures!

But then he can't be called the "Danbury Troll."

I wonder if he'll bring the new SOB to the Mississippi River Rendezvous?

Enjoy,

Perry

With all the Wisconsin owners now, I think Steve is busy planning the Cheesehead rally!

Technically we are not CHEESEHEADS or PACKER BACKERS or even residents of Wisconsin
We may live in Wisconsin part of the year but we are still Minnesotan’s and always will be
It’s a promise I made to my mother many years ago which I plan on keeping if at all possible


PS ; As far as being a TROLL nothing has changed

You are not from Wisconsin? That explains so much!!!!

Congrats on the new trailer, I hope it works out well for you once you get the kinks out.

We have owned property in Wisconsin for over 30 years and are still trying to learn the language and the local customs .

I did get a return E-Mail from PD and there is a way to make adjustments to the EMS system . I tried calling PD but the tech who sent me an E-Mail is out of the office . When I get anymore info I will post it .
