I just had a 50 amp portable model fail. Called Monday morning and had a new one yesterday. Progressive Industries indeed has excellent customer support.

Where do you install the surge protector? I'm a newbie with a 2000 Newmar Dutch Star. I recently ran into trouble when I plugged my 50amp cable into shore power and saw big sparking arcs from both converters in the power compartment. The 110 appliances worked that night and the next morning, but the 12 volt lights were dim, the fridge was off, and the control panel was dark. The batteries had a full charge and normally would have given us bright lights all night long.

I am another happy Progessive Industries customer. Had my portable EMS-PT30C melt a plug and sent it in for a rebuild for $89. I knew it wouldn't be covered under warranty as it was my fault for not keeping the unit's prongs clean. They sent me an entire new unit with all of the upgrades. If you have one of the older versions check out their website. $89 certainly beats spending $350 for a new unit. Thank you to Progressive Ind.

I have a 50@ Surge Guard 34850. Used it all the time. Works well on 30a also. Has protected numerous times on high voltage. It shuts off and resets at 132v. Only takes 128 seconds to diag and reset.
