What a great idea! Had we thought of that, we wouldn't have paid extra to have ours hard-wired.

I'd recommend Progressive Industries. I like the hard wired unit, with the remote display. Once it's in, nothing to do but check the display.

I bought mine from Tweetys online. Best deal I could find, & installed myself.

X2 on the hard-wired Progressive Industries. Not only surge protection, but also under/overvoltage protection plus will not power up if there are ground/neutral problems. Also monitors voltage, amperage and frequency.

Used to always lock it to the pedestal, but haven't locked mine up in 3 years now and over 150 campgrounds. I don't think most people even know what it is. Heading out Thursday for a 32 campgrounds trip and probably just jinxed myself.

One thing I love.

I hard wired my 50 amp. surge protecter and it is locked in my compartment knock on would it works. I plug it in on the power pole and it check out the power was wired wrong, the site manager said it was my unit. They check it in the morning and they said that i was right and gave me my money back because i needed 50 amp. and had to use 30 amp. So yes I love my protector.
