Good point

Wired mine in a way that I could unplug and bypass the unit if it sacrificed itself, but I was 2,000mi from the porch and needed to be able to still plug in "old school"

Hasn't been an issue yet though.

[QUOTE=GA Navigator;3189246]Wow. No one likes the TRC surge guard? It appears they do the same thing. Is the warranty the main reason the Progressive Industries units are preferred?

I had the TRC 50 amp hardwired in previous MH for 16 years Worked well, identified problems at pedestal on 3 or 4 occasions. Also tripped on nearby lightning strike. (no damage) At some point the main relay began to chatter and TRC replaced the unit without hassle. Bypass was with the turn of a key.

Present RV I have the Progressive EMS-LCHW30, hardwired, mainly because dealer had it available and at a good price. It also works as advertised.. and I do like the readout display.

The original poster's SS-50 surge protector has a lifetime warranty. I hope he sends it to progressive for repair or replacement.
That said, no surge protector will protect from open neutral circuits. He should spend the money and get real protection with the Progressive EMS-50 instead. It would prevent any damage such as he experienced with that open neutral circuit, and many other potential problems. Lifetime warranty too!
