2016 Axis 24.1 Surge Protector Install

Today I completed an install of a Southwire Surge Guard RV Power Protector into my 2016 Axis 24.1 RV. I didn't want to use one at the end of the cord for fear that it might get stolen so I opted for a permanent install in the camper. It was simple. Under the passenger side bed there is a transfer switch with 3 orange (10g) wires. Select the one that goes forward to the converter and WITH THE SHORE POWER DISCONNECTED cut the line, bare the wires and install them to the terminals of the new Surge Guard protector. I mounted a board (8-1/2" x 11") in the compartment for attaching the unit.

Message me if you need more info... I like the idea of having my rig protected from bad power or surges for an investment under $200. I bought this unit off of Amazon and it was considerably cheaper than the same unit on sale at Camping World.
I have pictures attached ( I think)

Thanks.
I'll do this sooner or later.
You took all of the
'OK, it's bought. Now what?'
Out of the install.

I put it off for awhile but the thought of frying the electronics convinced me. We go to a bush camp in Canada that generates it's own power and it's not reliable. Piece of cake for install... once you start . Biggest problem was figuring out where to place it.
