Surge Protector

I have the optional EMS in my trailer but it buzzes, enough so that I can easily hear it outside the trailer. Talked to the factory who had me clean the contactor which quieted it down some, but not much.

For those that have the EMS, can you hear yours? Trying to give it a sound level is kind of difficult, you can certainly hear it throughout the trailer.

I don't hear mine at all. Now the power fan... on high... that drove me outside. But, I understand that will quiet down with use.

Sorry I can't be more help.

Ditto on the "no noise" from ours.

Okay, so a whole bunch of us say "no noise." Not to question you... but are you absolutely sure it's the surge protector? Like I said, the power fan drove me out of Ten Forward on high.
