My compartment is 13" high like yours. Yes the AutoFormer is 12". The reel appears to be about the same height as the AutoFormer.

IMHO it is a great mod it really helps with the low voltage parks. I removed the junction box at the frame and installed a male Camco 50A end to plug into the back of the AutoFormer.

Hughes now has a user replaceable surge section which is a great improvement over its older design which had to replaced by Hughes, or at least a professional.

I have the 30A Hughes Autoformer and I put in a surge protector before it to protect it also. The surge protector is not an EMS, hence it won't shut down on low voltage and I don't want that as the Autoformer corrects that.

It works amazing and I'm very happy with the set up. Ive tested it again and again by adding load, it never fails to correct the voltage or very close.. Very impressed.

I can give you $1650 reason why you want to use a EMS device.
You will only make that mistake once by not using one.
