RE: Strange power problems with PI EMS 30 and autoformer?

I was going to call PowerMaster (VC-30) tomorrow but can't seem to find them. Does anyone know if they are still in business?

RE: Strange power problems with PI EMS 30 and autoformer?

AllegroD........... please tell me what an ATS is so I can answer your question. I'm guessing "no" since I don't know what it is :) I have 30amp at home. I will do solo checks this week and report my findings.

RE: Strange power problems with PI EMS 30 and autoformer?

Hi, Does it trip the 30 amp breaker without the autoformer? How about without the ems? I left today so I did not try either of the options you ask about.

RE: Strange power problems with PI EMS 30 and autoformer?

If the extension cord was plugged into the pedestal 20A and tripped the pedestal 30A then this sounds like a pedestal problem. I guess one should assume you had some kind on load on the extension cord when you flipped on the breaker? Actually the extension cord was not hooked to anything when I flipped the pedestal breaker. I agree that that part of my problem was probably pedestal related although I could not duplicate the surge with my meter hooked up. But then again, at that time there was no load on the 30amp either.

RE: Strange power problems with PI EMS 30 and autoformer?

I will try the autoformer after the EMS. But wouldn't that leave me vulnerable to a malfunction in the autoformer?

RE: Strange power problems with PI EMS 30 and autoformer?

why plug into the 20 amp? The 20amp was used for an extension cord for other purposes totally separate from anything to do with the trailer. It's just when I flipped the breaker for the 20amp I got a surge across the two circuits (it would seem, anyway).

Strange power problems with PI EMS 30 and autoformer?

Sorry for the length of this but details help: This is not a first outing with these items. Connected as follows: 30amp Post,-PowerMaster autoformer,- PI EMS-30,-trailer. Post had 50amp/30amp/20amp breakers. 30amp checked out fine with hand held checker and open ground detector. EMS ran check and turned on without problem. Plugged extension cord into 20amp outlet and turned on breaker. This caused an over current situation on the 30amp breaker and EMS shut down. Turned off 20amp breaker and EMS reset. Later that evening, with the refrig on electric, the coffee pot, two 12 volt lights, television and satellite box on, I turned on 1 more 12 volt light. EMS shut down everything and showed an "open ground" fault. Reset EMS and it recycled and returned power without a problem. Any ideas on what would cause this? I turned on the same 12 volt light without problem after the reset. Do I just have a sensitive unit? Is this something you have to live with to have EMS protection? When only using the autoformer we never experienced these problems. I may have been having problems and just didn't realize it. Thoughts please....

RE: New Ram 3500

Is this an ad for a hitch that could be for sale?

RE: HP Lap Top will not load.

If you are configured for auto updates you could be a victim of a bad update by Microsoft. Update #3033929 has caused may computers to go into a reboot loop. Check here for how to fix. Fix reboot loop I hope that's all it is. Good luck!

RE: Hitch ball grease

I use white lithium grease and if I'm going to leave the hitch on the truck I tie a plastic grocery bag over it. Grease is there for trip home and not on my pants.

RE: Monument Valley

Tribal RV park has reopened. Best views you can get. To answer your question...I would recommend reservations.

RE: Tonneaus

mabynack is right about the myth busters show. I think they also proved that having the tailgate down does not help. Aerodynamics built into new vehicles take all this into account. I have one and love it. Not for fuel savings but the fact that I can put stuff back there and it's not seen. Mine locks but that is just security in your mind not reality.

RE: Reputable Dealers

I agree with kohai..."Find somebody that really knows RVs and take them with you." There are exceptions, but "reputable" and "dealer" are not usually found in the same sentence. Best of luck in your search.

RE: Pulled pork for large group

I think Super_Dave has some experience in this area. I would try his way if it were me. Just reading some of his posts makes me hungry!

RE: Element for suburban sw10de water heater

Short one. Make sure you get the wrench if you don't have one.

RE: Skyline trailers

We had a Skyline Malibu (2008) It was a nice trailer and seemed to be built well. Had issues from lack of quality control during build process, but nothing major. Our dealer was the worst part of that trailer!

RE: Do I need a larger tow vehicle?

I just bookmark this page for adding photos: Photo upload I wonder if there is an "emission" problem with that TV ?

RE: Cheap AND easy UV protection? Canopies, sprays, covers, etc.

Cheap and quality don't usually go together. We live in extreme hot temps and I wanted to get as much protection for my roof as possible. The best way for "me" was to spend the money once and be done with it. Since you are always replacing the fabric on the canopies I went with a metal carport similar to this: Carport Check locally. Not in your budget (wasn't mine either) but worth it(IMHO) if you plan to keep your trailer any length of time. If you do go that way, consider future RV's and make sure you get it high enough the first time. I learned the hard way!

RE: Pulled Pork Spaghetti

Looks great Dave! Saw that episode also. Need to try this. Just out of curiosity, what was the solution to the canned hams at Christmas?
