I'm installing a hard wired 50a EMS in the new trailer, is there any reason to keep the 30a EMS?

Even if plugged into 30 Amp, the hard wired EMS would still work.

I will go with the NOPE as well. unless you still have a 30 amp trailer

IF you often park on 30 amp sites...... You might keep it as a "Spare" in case the 50 goes diodes up (Fails/dies) but otherwise it's dead weight.

or find a buyer


Home was where I park it. but alas the.
