In some cases the cost of the return of appliances such as these is more than their worth to the manufacturer.

What do you think about the Splendide W/D it was $1345 w/tax? And everything was never used.

It would appear you surge protector will not protect against improper wiring

"The Smart Surge 240V/50A provides 5-mode, 1650 joules, and 45,000 amp surge current rating. The built in surge status indicator notes the condition of the surge protector.

Additionally, the dual line circuit tester checks for: Reverse Polarity, Open Neutral and Open Ground prior to use. Sleek, compact, portable design makes it easy to use".

Three questions to the OP:
1) Will they replace with the same make/model appliances?
2) Do you have a place to store the old appliances?
3) How long do you plan to keep your RV?

If your answers are "yes", "yes" and "a long time" it might be nice to keep them to salvage any knobs, panels, and/or anything that did not get damaged, then use them as the replacement equipment ages. My 2˘...

Someone needs to post side by side diagrams of a 50a 240 receptacle and a 50a rv receptacle. I can't find mine.

ALL 50 Amp RV sources ARE 220 Volt. Thae fact is that the RV does NOT use 220 volt. The Busses in the distribution box are split, so each side gets 110 Volt. For this reason is why some people state that RV's are ONLY 110 Volt. So just for clarification, There IS 220 Volts coming into the RV but it is not utlized in that fashion.

Pardon me, but I don't believe that is correct.
