We have a Progressive 50A hard mount and I just removed it. As soon as we pick ip our new coach, the Progressive will be installed-- on it's third coach. Don't get much better than that. Mine even found a problem with our local electric coop's high line transformer. We keep the coach plugged in at home and it found the problem the electric company didn't have a way to see.

We have the 50 amp Progressive EMS installed in the electrical power bay. It comes with one remote display which we have installed next to the EMS so we can tell everything is ok soon after plugging in to a pedestal. The EMS itself does not have a display in it. You can buy an extra remote display kit which comes with a switch so you can switch to display #1 or display #2. It also comes with a telephone style wire that has RJ11 connectors. My wire was too short to go where I wanted my display #2 mounted so I made my own with the proper length. If you make your own, care must be taken when you crimp the RJ11 connectors because this is not a telephone application cable. I believe a telephone cable has the conductors crossed over and the EMS display cable is straight through. However, I can't remember at this point (senior moment!) so it may be the other way around. We have our display #2 mounted in the hallway control panel where all the other goodies (tank monitor, inverter control, pump switches, generator controls, etc) are mounted. It is very handy in that location because we can easily see what the voltages and amperage draws are on each leg of the 50 amp shore power without having to go outside the motorhome. The EMS constantly scrolls through all the information so you don't even have to touch it.

I have two remote displays. One in the service bay to view immediately after hooking up shore power. The other is located next to my Intellitec EMS unit in an overhead cabinet inside the bedroom. I use that to monitor the amount of amps on each leg that I am drawing from the shore power connection.

There is an A/B Switch kit that you need if you want two displays.

See photos.

Ok, just looked it up. The 50 Amp Progressive EMS uses a data or straight cable (not a telephone or crossover cable) to connect the remote display to the display switch. Both cables use the RJ11 connector. The difference is a matter of where you put the wire conductors in the RJ11 connector when you crimp it on to the cable.

Have a surge guard and an autoformer. With the poor electric quality at many of the older campgrounds, especially in the summer with lots of AC running, they are a must.
