Since my shore power cord enters the coach at the driver's side rear corner it made it simple to choose a location for the EMS-HW-50C device.

My rear closet has a recessed plastic container which gets used for shoe storage. I removed the plastic container and found plenty of room below to mount the HW-50C.

The remote display is mounted in an overhead cabinet in the bedroom near the Intellitec EMS System Panel.

I mounted mine vertically on the wall to the rear of the power cord reel. Chuck, I dont see how there is much room to mount it in front of the reel since at least on my coach, the reel is mounted far forward in that compartment. If I have to get to it to replace the board, it is only remove 4 screws that hold the reel to the floor, swing the power cord reel out of the way, and I have easy access to the HW-50. Not a lot of work in that process.

And I think most people understand, but even on the new coaches, what you are getting is a power transfer switch which has a Surge Suppressor incorporated in it. If you get a major power surge then what is blown is the Surge Suppressor part of the unit. When people say, "It's one surge and done", that means that after the MOVs blow to protect the switch from the surge, then they are gone and done reset. However, the transfer switch continues (in all likelihood) to function, but you just dont have any surge suppression system, or low or brown out voltage protection. That is what the HW-50 is doing that is different than your transfer swith. The progressive in front of the transwer switch disconnects the coach from the shore (or shore and generator ) power source if there are voltage or grounding or wiring faults on your power source and keeps the coach isolated until that problem is removed.

Mounting Locations will vary by models and years of production as in the case of our 16 Anthem we did a floor mount behind the power cord reel and an A/B switch with a readout aside of the power cord reel rocker switch amd the other in the 1/2 bath control panel cabinet. I plug in at shorepower check readings wait for transfer switch and then slide the switch for inside readout so I can quickly check if any problems occur.
Access to the PI either side by reaching past or removing power cord reel. There wasn't enough room elsewhere in that compartment. The other choice of course is the outside portable model.

BINGO! and that is what I am going to be looking at or even a ceiling mount or further behind the power cord reel. Even after removing the reel, there is not much room to change the board with the Aqua Hot and lines in the way. Coming if from the P/S in my freezer compartment there is all kinds of room to work comfortably. Installation and service room, I found out are two different things.

In my 2017 Anthem 44B, there are very few options on where to mount the HW50. Thanks for the mounting tips. I'll remove the power reel and either mount it behind, or consider a ceiling mount.
