Thanks everyone for the great advise! We will be going with the Progressive Industries brand and got the booklet for the different styles of protectors and will be ordering online.

As for the rock that few up, it hit the body of the MH just at the drivers side window level. And it hit pretty hard, but didn't leave any damage.

Added window awning

I have a 3120 with the drivers side slide, Ref and dinette. I wanted shade and rain protection for the dinette window. I ordered a Carefree 5.5. ft and mounted it right next to the top Ref vent instead of centered over the window for better rain protection since my window slides from that side.
The 5.5 ft top rail is 66 inches long, Material is 61 inches and the arms are 68 inches outside to outside. Only thing I didn't care for was the self drilling screws they supplied to mount the arms. I used ones with a heavier screw thread. Hope I was able to help.

Progressive 30 amp all the way.. have not had it power since dealer pick up without it, and the coach stays powered 24/7.

One more surge question - the 30 amp protector: We occasionally stay on 50 amp sites because at some campgrounds, they are nicer. So can I use a 30 amp protector on a 50 amp site?

I gather your RV has a maximum rating of 30 amps; so plugging it into a more powerful circuit (50 amp) will not make it draw more power than it is designed to do. That said, most every 50 amp shore power outlet post that I have come across has both a 30 amp and 50 amp outlet on it; so just plug in a normal. If the post only has a 50 amp outlet, you will need a male 50 amp to female 30 amp adapter (Camping World, Amazon, etc.) which you would plug in first. Then plug in your surge suppressor and then the RV power cord as normal. No harm to the surge suppressor or your RV, they will only draw the 30 amps required, no more.

Okay, great. I have a dog bone converter to convert the 30 amp plug to 50 amp. We've been to a couple campgrounds where only 50 amp is available on a site.
