30 Amp Surge Protector

I'm sure this will open a new opinion arena, but what 30 amp surge protector do many use and why. Prices are all over the spectrum. I do not need or desire a 50amp - even for future use. Thanks in advance.

Progressive Industries - best protection and a lifetime warranty! If you're going to spend the money do it right the first time and get the best IMHO.

Progressive Industries EMS series for sure. Prices have such a big range between brands because protection levels have a big range. You get what you pay for. Here is a link comparing models.

Thanks for all the great Feedback -finally lol. This why I joined this forum. Unbiased info.

Ok, how does one lock it to prevent nice people from permanently borowing it? I see the ring, but how is it locked to TT?


OOPs I just looked up. I guess I could get the hard wired version instead.

I just installed EMSHW30C from Progressive Industries, just be sure if you do purchase this unit, to remove the jumper for a longer delay(for the A/C). Easy to install, don't have to go outside to see trouble codes and you don't have to worry about theft.

I use a long neck padlock and lock it to the steps under the trailer. You can also chain it to the pole with a lock.

Yes, progressive. Mine is 5 years old and is plugged in at home too. I also check the pedestal with a volt meter before plugging in my $200 progressive..
