  • New Progressive Industries 50 Amp Electrical Management System

    Edit: 11/28/17

    We have just decided to keep the EMS and use it in conjunction with the autoformer that at first we thought would replace it. Turns out, having both seems to be the ticket. Sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused!

    ============================================

    We just bought this but decided not to use it. The comany we bought it from won't take it back because we opened the package. We will deliver it to you for $300. If interested please send a private message. It is the 50 amp model that you hard wire into your RV so it isn't outdoors where it can be easily stolen or ruined by rain. It includes the remote control panel.

    Why did you decide not to install it?

      We decided on the Hughes Autoformer instead.

        Expiring minds are curious as to why you decided on this over the PI?

          Both nice units slight different functions and abilities. If you really want (money aside) the best protection for your rig, use both of them together Autoformer then EMS.

            I watched the Autoformer video.

            I was surprised they recommend putting a brick under the unit and a plastic trash can over it, to keep it away from water since it's not weatherproof.... and it's "designed" to be used next to a outside RV pedestal in the elements?

              That is true, but a lot of people use them and like the way they function to boost voltage. It is nice to see we have some choices based on our individual needs.

              $300 delivered is a good deal for someone on the EMS, should be gone in no time!

                I do not think that the Autoformer (at least by reading the site) protects the system like the Progressive EMS does. I saw nothing that provides a readout, just colored light displays, and I did not see where it blocks the issues prior to energizing the coach.

                It does have an internal mounting kit: https://hughesautoformers.com/produc...ll-kit-50-amp/

                  I think the OP was just looking to sell the EMS, but a Progressive vs Hughes thread might be a good topic.

                    For the voltage boosting ability the PI doesn't have. Our thinking is that more problems may be caused by low voltage than by spikes. This unit protects against both. I have to admit some ignorance and limited knowledge on this subject. We may wind up using both units as suggested by another poster... still learning, here.
