Hard wired surge protector, Minnie Plus 27RPDS

.Anyone have this model and installed a hard wired surge protector? I’m having a hard time finding a place to mount it.
Looks like most likely scenario is to pull the breaker panel and run a pigtail up into the bottom of the pantry??
Any ideas most welcomed.
Larry

ETA - Apparently I can’t edit the subject? It’s a 27 RBDS, my apologies

Since I wanted a Progressive EMS, I decided to get an external unit so that my significant investment followed me and not the trailer should I decide to move to something else.

Now I’m kinda’ wishing I had gone that rout as well. The reports of them being stolen swayed me to the HW model.
I purchased the surge protector in anticipation of the TT purchase so I could get it installed right away. All the YT videos I watched showed an access panel of some sorts so I assumed.......there would be one. I know.....

I keep the camper in storage so my ability to work on it is limited, I’ll delve into it a little deeper this weekend.
The side of the bathroom vanity is against the wall that the breaker panel is located, hoping I can run a camera in and find the wire. If so I can mount the unit there and run the remote into the pantry maybe.

I have the Progressive external unit, also. I have a locking cable which I can use to lock the unit to the pedestal. Or use a longer cable and lock to my trailer.

Since it’s so hard for me to find time to work on the Minnie, I decided to return the hard wired unit (ain’t Amazon great) and ordered the external one.
I’ll get a cable lock for it.
Thanks for the suggestions, this just made life a little easier.

I went with the hard-wired Progressive 30 amp surge protector. I installed it on our travel trailer after a surge trashed our microwave and transferred it from the trailer to our Suncruiser 35U. If you can change an electrical outlet in your house, you can install one of these.

Note that the surge suppressor module is replaceable so you don't have to replace the whole unit. I don't believe this is true of the external/portable units.

On the portable units, they ship you a new unit and you return the defective one.

On my camper there is no easy access to install the HW unit. Iím sure I could cut things apart and get it done but just donít have the time or place to do it.
