Hi Steve, Coilers,

My advise would be to hook them up normal, ground the case to the power
ground (green wire), and put the two in series.  With their ratings, I
see nothing to be gained by paralleling them, as you're well within the
amperage with your 5 KVA pig.  I went an extra measure by putting some
MOVs from line to ground on the line side of the filter, just in case
a few transcients do manage to get through.
