    Where Did You Install Your HW50C?

    I won't be without a Progressive Industries HW50C 50 Amp Hardwired Electrical Management System. Where and how did you install yours? Got pics? Thanks for sharing.

    Hey Chance,

    I mounted the main box in the basement behind the wall inline with the power cord. I placed in on top of a piece of 4x4 I screwed to the floor to keep it out of any potential water leaks.

    Currently I just velcroed the remote to the basement wall. Eventually I want to move it up with the light switch panel in the trailer. Just have to get the nerve to figure out how to route the wire.

    Like Brent, I installed the HW50C control box behind the electrical breaker box inside the cabinet on the floor. However, I mounted the monitor just above the cabinet door so I could see and monitor it from inside the fiver. Hey Brent, love your mod's area and videos, great ideas!!

    I'm working on an article about our install now. On our 385TH, I could see a bundle of wires penetrating from the underside (behind the basement walls) up under where the electrical panel is. I unscrewed the electrical panel and I could see the same colored wires running to the right of the panel. I took a solid fish tape wire and carefully ran it up with those, and then went upstairs and found it to the right of the panel with those wires. I attached the cables I needed run (two silver-satin type cables, one for the EMS display and one for a switch to control our inverter) and then went back down to the basement and pulled them carefully down.
