Do you want to know the best way to bring your RV trip to a screeching halt? Plug your RV’s electrical directly into the pedastal without a surge protector and take a spike to your system. You can take the chance, but why would you want to? We all carry insurance in hopes that we never have to use it. It’s true that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of protection.
I personally use Surge Guard surge protectors and absolutely love them. For me, protect my RV from Power Surges and Electrical Issues is of paramount importance
These new Surge Guard portables with LCD display offer more than twice the Joules of power surge protection than the previous models. Compact and easy to use, they plug in between the power pedestal and the line cord to provide protection. Designed for all travel trailers, 5th wheels and motorhomes, Surge Guard portable power protectors shield the expensive electrical equipment in the RV from faulty park power by shutting off the power when problems are detected. They continuously monitor for voltage and amp draw plus reverse polarity (miswired pedestal, elevated ground voltage) and shut off power when open ground, open neutral, and low (<102V) and high (>132V) voltage are present:
- Built-in intelligence
- Automatic reset on power restoration
- Thermal protection against plug and receptacle overheating (Patent Pending)
- LCD display (English)
- Multi-mode surge suppression
- 128 second reset delay protects A/C compressor
- Convenient plug disconnect handles
- Weather resistant
- 30 amp unit has 2450 Joules of power surge protection.
- 50 amp unit has 3850 Joules of power surge protection.
If you don’t currently have a surge protector for your RV, I highly recommend that you purchase one soon. I guarantee you that the cost of a quality surge protector is far less than the cost of losing your electrical in your RV.
