Purchased a Progressive 50 hard wired surge protector with remote for our Berkshire. They work with any amps, 30 or 50. Recommend you get a 50amp.

2011: 54 days, 2012: 218 days, 2013: 175 days, 2014: 196 days
2015: 188 days, 2016: 72 days,

Match the amps to your RV. 50amp gets the 50amp protector.

The Progressive's are very good. I've got the 30amp EMS-PT30C, but you would want either the EMS-LCHW50, which is hard wired or the EMS-PT50C, which is portable. Both of those protect against much more than just surges.

I would get the hard wired unit if I owned a motorhome.

X6...... The Progressives protect against MUCH more than simple surges. For example, open neutral, which will put a full 220-240 volts into every one of your appliances. POOF, everything ruined.

Also, I would get the one that mounts inside, not the external one that hangs on the power pedestal. Less chance of it sprouting legs and sneaking off in the dark of the night. I mounted my own in less than an hour.
