Thanks to the Electrical Monitoring System...AGAIN!

Yesterday we plugged into our 4th campground 50 amp electrical supply on this trip and our Progressive EMS showed low voltage. Sure enough, the campground handyman had to replace a bad circuit breaker. We've gone nearly 4 years and never saw a problem.

The EMS was a good investment

I have a Hughes Autoformer...have you looked into getting one? I believe it's supposed to help in situations like this.

I agree....A few years ago (before I started using the Progressive EMS) I had one of my inverters fail because of a surge or low power (not sure which) and had to have it repaired at the tune of over $2,000.

I would agree the autoformer would help the OP in this situation. The problem I see though there was something wrong with the breaker. Sounds like it was defective and needed replacement. I am only speculating but it was probably converting voltage to heat. Not a good thing no matter how you look at it and a major issue in the long run.
Glad the OP called to have it checked and replaced.
