Progressive Industries 
Surge Protection  
 
The integrated “Electrical Management System (EMS) helps to protect your RV against voltage fluctuations, power surges and incorrectly wired shore power which can cause severe and costly damage to RV appliances and electronics” (ProgressiveIndustries.com).

The EMS Surge Protection system is a great tool to help protect your investment. With that being said it can also be quite frustrating when it stops power from coming inside the unit and you’re A/C doesn’t come on to cool off the camper. Don’t get too alarmed just yet as this is what it is designed to do when it senses an issue at the shore power in the campground. There are several reasons why the surge protector stops the power but all of the reasons are protecting your camper from possible damage. When this does occur, we want to take a look at the surge protector display. This is typically mounted in 2017 and prior models under the street side bed compartment. You will simply lift the access panel located under the bed and you should see the display mounted on the wheel well. On 2018 models this display has been moved to the rear cabinet on the interior wall next to your fuse panel. Below we will review each error code and what it means.

•Display is blank – This means there is no power getting to the surge protector itself. It could be that there is no power at the pole or the display is not connected to the main control box.

•E0 – Normal Operating Condition. This is what you should see if everything is working properly. It will also scroll through other information to display volts, hertz, etc…

•E1 – Reverse Polarity – This is a common issue at many campgrounds where the Hot and Neutral wires are reversed. Without a surge protector you would still get power and never know that there was an issue but reverse polarity can have negative effects on sensitive electronics.

•E2 – Open Ground – This is common when connecting to a generator as it is not grounded. The only resolution to get power into the camper is to use a Neutral Ground Plug in the generator or switch the surge protector into bypass mode. – *Please see note below on switching into bypass mode.

•E3 – Line 1 High Voltage – This occurs if the voltage jumps above 132v. This will cause the system to work intermittently and can be very frustrating as it might cause you’re A/C and Microwave to kick on and off erratically.

•E4 – Line 1 Low Voltage – This occurs when the voltage drops below 104v. This will have the same effect as the E3 error code.

•E5 & E6 codes are reserved for the HW50C models only and should not display with the model equipped in the Oliver camper.

•E7 – Line Frequency High (Above 69 cycles) – this is a measure of how clean the power being supplied is. The normal reading should be 60Hz. This is where the term Pure Sine Wave comes into play as it needs to produce clean energy or a rhythm.

•E8 – Line Frequency Low (Below 51 cycles) – Same as above

•E9 – Data Link Down (Call Progressive Industries Tech Support 919-264-6964)

•E10 – Replace Surge Protector Module (Call Progressive Industries Tech Support)

*Switching the surge protector into bypass mode is not recommended unless you are certain that the power supply you are connected to is a good power source. A generator must be pure sine wave to ensure that it is producing clean signal to the camper. If you do choose to bypass the surge protector, it does still disable the surge protection portion of the EMS; however all other features are disabled.
