Progressive Industries HW50C

Just installed Progressive Industries HW50C lat night before we leave for the beach. Went pretty well, now all I have to do is run the lead for the remote display.

Don't put the remote in the bedroom as the light can be real annoying at night.

My remote is located in the bedroom BUT inside an overhead cabinet where the Intellitec EMS lives.

I have a second remote in the service bay that I can view when I first hook up shore power making sure there are no error codes, then it gets switched over to the display inside.

I too had a second display in the electrical bay that I could see as I hooked up.

The inside display was in the toilet room and was easily seen from the hallway.

I left my remote display in the electrical compartment so I can check it during hook up. I've never seen the need to have it in the coach. Other than general curiosity, why have it inside? If I loose power I'll probably go outside to look at the post anyway. Just wondering.

By the way, =LOVE IT=

With the display inside, there is no need to go outside when there's a power problem.

I use the display inside to read PE codes but more importantly for monitoring the number of amps I am pulling on each leg at any given moment especially when I happen to be on a 30 amp pedestal.

Everyone is entitled to do as they please with THEIR RV.

Richard, your coach is immaculate and one could probably eat off any surface in the utility bay...I remember how pristine and clean it was from pictures in the past. I'm so envious of your abilities there.

That's exactly why I wanted my display where it is, I can see it from everywhere except the bathroom and bedroom, which is where I am most of the time when I'm looking.

Last trip to Kansas in May, I had a high voltage shut down at about 4:00 in the morning. My sleeping requirements are: 1) Box fan for noise; 2) CPAP for sleep apnea 3) Ceiling fan on to move the air. So the second I lose power when asleep, I'm awake almost immediately. I got out of bed, went out to the front/salon to the display, checked my plug-in voltage meter, circuit breakers, etc. When all checked out, I could see the PE code was high voltage, since I was in the green again on the meter, switched off the EMS and the power came back on immediately. Then switched it back on, all from the remote panel.

Very handy having the remote panel inside the coach, especially in that circumstance. The remote display having the bypass switch is another good reason to have it mounted inside the coach.

When I installed my Progressive Industries HW50C, I called PI about using a longer cord to power the remote display. They said no the cord they supplied was the longest that would work. They lied. I built my own cord 27.5 feet and works great. So if the supplied cord isn't long enough to put it where you want, buy or make a longer one.
