Scot, change to the Smart Plug, get the second generation unit, and save the old Marinco unit. Check with your insurer. Some offer a rebate if you change to a Smart. Mine did, though that was several years ago.
I had an early 50amp Smart Plug fail. I hadn’t heard about issues. Is there information available on that?
