RE: wiring a 30 Amp Power Outlet 30A Circuit Breaker {{UPDATE}}

"Features all-in-one construction for factory assured terminations" I'm guessing, it's all wired up with the breaker already wired to the plug. There is probably a pig tail from the other side of the breaker that you have to connect up. THAT would be great if it has that... Its amazon so nobody go really call... thanks

wiring a 30 Amp Power Outlet 30A Circuit Breaker {{UPDATE}}

Have a 30 amp outlet next to our TT in the lot but the breaker is in the garage a distance away. so I want to install a 30amp plug with a breaker in the box also so I can shut the power off right at the box when plugging and unplugging the TT into it to save me walking a 100 ft to the breaker box... I will be buying this box from amazon... 30 amp box and breaker My question is does anyone have a site to show me how to wire the breaker to the outlet in the box??? checked utube but nothing that I found that shows this, only how to just wire the 30 amp outlet only....thanks

RE: Surge Guard Protector..????

THANKS... CHECKED IN TO THE SOUTHWIRE SURGE PROTECTION and I do see a difference in the joules, the progressive EMS-PT30X has 1790 JOULES and the SOUTHWIRE has a 2450 JOULES rating. Is 660 JOULES difference that big of thing???? I still like the PROGRESSIVE look and cover but if 660 JOULES (not even sure what they are, LOL) is that much better maybe I will rethink...................THANKS Joules are a measure of energy, in this case energy that can be absorbed from transient surges. ("Surges" here mean quick spikes that are significantly higher voltage than expected.) Neither are anywhere near what it would take to protect from a very close lightning strike, which is probably the most common cause of significant surge damage. I would not worry about that difference one bit. Drew E u were spot on in ur explanation of joules. here is a pretty good article to read if anyone else out there is looking for info on a EMS plug..... What Are Joules And Are They A True Indicator Of Product Quality? Among the other specifications found in the above 'surge protectors' for RVs reviews, you will see the joule rating displayed. You will notice that the Southwire 'surge protectors' have a higher joule rating than the Progressive Industries 'surge protectors'. But what does this mean and is it important? First, let's explain what a Joule is. I don't know about you, but my eyes bug out when I read Wikipedia's definition of Joule. So let's see if we can simplify what it is. A Joule in the context of RV 'surge protector' for RVs is the maximum amount of energy that a 'surge protector' can absorb and dissipate as heat. This comes into play when there is a voltage spike or power surge in the power supply. So in theory, the higher the Joule rating the better. But does this really matter? One of the MOST important factors when looking at a surge protection for RVs is the response time. In other words, how quickly the camper 'surge protector' will respond, for example, to a sudden voltage spike. You want this to be an incredibly small number, so that the power supply issue doesn't have a chance to damage your RV. The Progressive Industries 'surge protectors' for RVs have a response time of less than 1 nanosecond (one billionth of a second). That's a really small number, and thus a really fast response time. So while Progressive Industries might have a lower Joule rating than Southwire, it really doesn't matter. The Progressive Industries unit will have disconnected from the faulty power source before the excessive energy needs to be dissipated, thus protecting your RV. This in one of the many reasons we picked Progressive Industries as having the best RV 'surge protectors'. Portable Or Permanent Surge Protector? HERE IS THE ENTIRE ARTICLE IF ANYONE WANTS TO READ IT...................... SURGE PROTECTOR INFO

Thank u for ur response..

RE: Surge Guard Protector..????

Advice I've received said to stay away from Surge Guard products. I know from experience, Camco's top of the line protector is a bad investment. When mine failed due to water intrusion (it was never immersed in water but did hang outside for a month when it rained several times - it claimed to be water resistant), I called asking where I could get it repaired and was told it was not repairable. $250 on a non-repairable item doesn't sit well with me - never again. The Progressive line of protectors has a lifetime warranty that users say they stand behind. https://www.progressiveindustries.net/our-products Just to clarify Southwire Surge Guard now have lifetime warranty and also detect load side issues, I know hard to believe an RV maybe miswired.

RE: Surge Guard Protector..????

The advice given here about the Progressive Industries EMS is the best advice,If you are looking for the plug in one The best choice would be the EMS PT 30 X Right now Tweetys has the best price. I prefer the Hard wired one myself, not because the fear of theft or forgetting it just one more thing to drag out and put away. The hard wire one is an easy DIY project they even have a CompanyVideo showing how it is done. Thanks for the info and u r right, tweetys is the best price after checking many sites... they even beat Amazon who want 229.00 for the same one. I am leaning towards that model after reading many reviews and videos.. thanks and thank you all for the help...
