  1. New RV Question

    Hello all: I'm a new member and we're picking up our new DP as soon as some warranty work is complete. In order to provide protection at the pedestal I have pre-ordered a portable surge protector, specifically a Progressive Industries EMS-PT50X. While performing a walkdown of the RV today I snapped pictures of all of the equipment I could see and upon returning home I discovered the unit is already equipped with a Surge Guard Transfer Switch, specifically the 41260. Are these two devices redundant? Will the portable unit enhance the protection or hinder it? My (newbie) understanding is that the transfer switch, while providing a certain level of protection, provides a different service than the Progressive Industries Unit. In addition, the Progressive Industries unit provides me with diagnostic information concerning the feed. So, OK to use both or should I return the portable unit? Thanks. Jp
