For complete protection, we recommend our EMS units.

Frequently Asked Questions
EMS-SURGE & VOLTAGE PROTECTION MODELS
Q: Should a Hardwired EMS be installed before or after the transfer switch?
A: A hardwired EMS should be installed prior to the transfer switch. The reason for this is most RV generators already have built-in voltage and frequency protection. If the EMS is installed after the transfer switch, this leaves the transfer switch vulnerable to power problems.
Q: Can I use an adapter and maintain full protection?
A: Yes. An adapter can be used and the RV will maintain full electrical and surge protection.
Q: Is there a difference in protection between the different EMS models?
A: No. All EMS's offer the same protection.
Q: Can I add a second remote display to the wired in models?
A: Yes, but only to the EMS-HW30C and EMS-HW50C models. An additional remote cannot be added to the LC-HW30 and LC-HW50 models.
Q: IF MY UNIT IS DAMAGED DUE TO A POOR CONNECTION IS
IT COVERED UNDER PROGRESSIVES' LIFETIME WARRANTY?
A: Progressive Industries Lifetime Warranty Policy does not cover damage to the unit and/or pigtail due to
a poor connection.
In order to protect you and your RV we recommend you take preventivitve measures before connecting your
portable unit to the pedestal and/or electrical power. Ensure the blades on the pigtail are not discolored and
