Re: Electrical Monitoring System Installation (Surge Protector)

Harold, thank you for the Duo-therm info as we do not have that. We have A/C installation and operating instructions without a word on the delay. We were not installing it, however. We are not electricity gurus such as yourself so would not know a jumper from anything. Looked at the circuit board and do not see anything that seems it might be for the delay. I do have photos of everything electrical. Will have to have someone check it out to make sure the installer didn't forget the delay.

Re: Electrical Monitoring System Installation (Surge Protector)

question for Harold and Cathy,
Is the shelf shown in both your installs standard in the Escape under seat area? I'm planning on installing my EMS as soon as my 19' arrives home. I've installed one before in another trailer so I'm familiar with the install procedure but not where it is located issues. Will I need to obtain some wood shown where you installed the unit? Is the existing wire long enough? Maybe ask Reace to leave some slack in the converter install to make it easier? Thanks for any help...

never in doubt, often wrong

Re: Electrical Monitoring System Installation (Surge Protector)

The plywood was already there in my trailer, I think it covers part of the black water tank. If you have the detachable power cord, you will already have 10/2 Romex wire going from the socket mounted on the side of the trailer to my breaker panel. I just cut the existing wire and hooked it up to the EMS and then bought another piece from Home Depot to go from the EMS to the panel. The service is 120v 30A so the wire has to be 10 gauge.
