Rated 5 out of 5 by from An EMS from Progressive Industries is a Must The EMS-PT50X (or the PT30X) from Progressive Industries is a "must have" for anyone with an RV that contains expensive electrical appliances and components. It is not only an effective surge protector for your RV, but it also protects you from several common potential campground power anomalies that may occur, like low voltage, high voltage, open ground, post mis-wiring, etc. Progressive Industries has long been known as the best in the industry, when it comes to protecting RV electrical systems from external power anomalies. I use mine in conjunction with the the combo transfer switch/surge protector that was factory installed in my Tiffin Allegro Bus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big and Bulky This item is much larger than I expected. Maybe I missed the size in description, but it was twice the size of others I had seen. I'm not sure of the 5 minute delay prior to allowing power to the rig but it can be inconvenient. My first use encountered a pedestal that the 50 Amp service was mounted upside down and to low to the ground to suspend the unit. The connection cover would have stayed open and directed water into the unit. I did plug it in long enough to check the circuitry of the park and it indicated all was well. Seems to do the job, just bulky and not quite as convenient as I might have thought it would be. Does seem to be well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EMS with Surge Protection First time using circuit protection. Just been extremely lucky in the past with my older trailer. Now have a much larger and pricier trailer, Which we really like. Therefore the move to improve. This unit delivers as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I got this about 3 months ago and love it. My Country Coach has a built in Surge Guard but having this lets me check the power before I plug in. I have a cable where I lock it to my coach so it doen't get a set of legs and walk off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EMS RV Protection This portable unit offers total electrical protection for your RV. Much more than just surge protection alone. It is also available in a hard wired version. Choose a 30 amp or 50 amp device

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still the standard by which the others are judged! Checks the pedestal's circuit quickly and it's easy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power protection with no worries This is a simple to use yet sophisticated device that protects your RV against faulty park wiring as well as power surges and faults that may occur. Just plug it into the park power pedestal first and let it analyze and tell you if all is well BEFORE plugging in your RV. Works great and gives me confidence that I don't have to worry at all about damaging my equipment. The locking ring and a bicycle cable lock also give me confidence it will still be there in the morning. Well worth the price.

If you have a 50 AMP electrical on TT but have to reduce to 30 AMP at some campsites then can you use a 50 AMP surge protector attached to the 50 AMP electrical line from TT then attach a reducer to 50 AMP surge protector for 30 AMP to plug into post??

Asked by: Taiter69
Yes, you can connect this 50amp surge protector to a 30amp outlet at the post with an adapter when a 50amp outlet is not available.

Do you have to have a 30 amp and 50 amp for when you are in sites that aren’t both?

Asked by: Yogi
The amperage of the surge protector is to match the electrical system of the RV, use a 30amp surge protector on a 30amp RV and use a 50amp surge protector on a 50amp RV. If a different amperage power outlet is the only thing available, you can use a power adapter to connect the surge protector to the outlet. The more common scenario is having a pedestal that does not have a 50amp outlet, you can use an adapter to connect the 50amp surge protector to a 30amp outlet on the pedestal.

I have a doubt. Since I am in Europe, the frequency here is 50 Hz. I have a 230/120 transformer in my RV but obviously the frequency remains at 50 Hz. Could I have problems if I install the EMS-PT50X at the input?

Asked by: Tony65
The surge protectors we carry run on 120v / 60 Hz for use in North America. These surge protectors would have to be connected to transformed power for use overseas.

I had my electrical go out while in an rv park. I thought I'd blown the breaker but it was still set. Something in the surge protector had tripped and now it doesn't work. It's suppose to have a lifetime warranty, How do I get it replaced?

Asked by: Bill
They will shut off on their own if voltage drops below 113v (could be 110, but check the manual). High or low frequency will do it to. We have experienced this several times. It could be an issue with the power supplied and not the device. Double check the volts and Hz before you condemn the surge protector. It may be doing what it is designed for.

Is this unit weather proof? I assume it shouldn't lay in standing water but is it okay if it gets rained on?

Asked by: NewCamper
Yes, this surge protector is weather resistant. It can be exposed to outside weather(like rain) but should not be submerged.

Is this unit resettable or is it a once and done

Asked by: Navy Vet
The unit is designed to shut down power temporarily to the RV if the voltage drops below 104V or if the voltage rises past 132V. In the event of a power surge causing the surge protection devices across line to neutral(L-N), line to ground(L-G) to become damaged or depleted within the EMS unit, the display will show an E10 error code. This indicates that the surge protection is depleted and is no longer providing surge protection to your RV. It is recommended that you replace the surge protector. This error will not shut off incoming power to the RV.
