Is the plug on back of your trailer round, or square? The round plugs are all being replaced with square ones because of issues.

Gulf Waters RV Resort. Very nice, owner park. Each site is owned. Lot's of very nice rigs, 4-5 RWs in here, have not met anyone yet. It actually is in Port Aransas on Mustang Island. You must have stayed in Salida at 4 Seasons.

I've got the square with a 3-14 build date.

Think I will still pull it and check. Who needs the misery of finding out later.

Yes, it was Four Seasons in Salida. Thanks for the head's up on Gulf Waters Resort. That is one we have zeroed in on from web sites and it's good to have your endorsement.

WOW I can't believe how lucky I have been, not one issue other than the wreck a year ago and my Dealer and the factory reps were great. Good luck and I hope all works out for you.

I have been very fortunate with my 36RE. We've had some small issues, but with reading here on the forum I check the problems that are identified and it seems to be keeping problems from happening. Thanks to all who identify issues so others can learn and prevent occurrence in the rigs.

Update:
Made it back to Salida, put 2300 miles on the truck and rig and things went just fine. The roof repair by the mobile repair guy went really well. We discovered a 2" slice in the membrane in the front left corner. It was just enough to catch some air and bubble the front 3-4 feet or so. He removed the catch strip around the front cap and pulled back the membrane and reglued it to the deck. Got it back under the cap and installed a second catch strip behind the cap. Had to "tape" the slice, but he says that stuff is forever. Caulked the entire repair and did not have a single problem on the way home. The tape and caulk is paintable, so will have to touch it up back to black. We never could determine whether the slice was from original install or what, but it was clean like a razor knife cut. Did not look like a tree branch or like that.

As far as all the electrical goes, we have not had a single problem since we tightened the neutral lug at the rear. Hear at home, we have a clean 120 on each leg now. However, I do think it is wise to put a 50amp surge protector in just in case and to avoid any future problems.

The repair guy took photos and will bill RW directly, did not cost me anything. He also fixed the fresh water drain, and replaced a few screws for the fender braces.

All is well that ends well.

I've been carrying one in a box for the last 2 years. I hope this year I'll find the time and ambition to install it.

Yes...and not just because you're a RW owner. Normal utility voltage is simply not of consistent quality not to have some protection.

I will comment on this since I started the thread.

I have burned the Bluray, Dirt devil vac, the bedroom tv twice, the fireplace and the ATS due to what I believe was a loose neutral in the shore power plug in the rear. I am going to install the EMS from Progressive like Brad did for sure. There are so many sensitive items on today's rigs that it makes so much sense and with the flux in some parks in their electric supply, it will prevent so much damage.

Funny, I was adding the booster for a TPMS system last night and noticed many of the power and ground lugs around the battery compartment were fairly loose. Loose enough they would eventually cause some problems.

Something to look at on a regular basis I would think.

The simple answer...YES!!!

We had ours installed by the dealer, hardwired, by our dealer before taking delivery. I did this because of horror stories I heard before ordering our Redwood.

The guy right next to me in the campground we're in didn't have one, at a prior C/G he parked at he plugged in, next thing he knew smoke was coming out of the pedestal. Apparently there was some problem with the C/G power, it melted the prongs on his power cord and melted the 50A receptacle. He had to replace almost all the wiring in his coach and most all electronics; TV's microwave, coffee maker, AC's, etc. He now has a surge protector!

Yes. The main advantage to having it hardwired is less chance someone will steal it, these things are expensive...but worth it!!

If you can get it installed prior to delivery, that is excellent. If not, a hardwired unit can be installed by yourself. We consider it insurance on the components of the RV. And yes, the hardwired unit will not be conducive to 'sticky fingers' removing it from your RV.
