Surge Protectors

Question to my fellow seasonal campers. I keep reading about surge protectors. Never had one in eight years of RV ownership.
Can someone please tell me in very simple terms what they do and why I need one? Thank you.

Couple links for ya:

RV Surge Guard Guide

The RV Doctor: Are Surge Protectors Needed in RVs?

They will block a surge of electricity from frying your onboard electronics. Some will even shut down if it senses low voltage saving thing like your AC unit.

I'm a seasonal camper from Mi. also We enjoy the fact that we go up and there is no set up and teardown. A lot of people like to travel to different locations but I like to enjoy my time in northern Mi. We also have a marina for boats and pontoons and I keep my fishing boat there. Our lake is a no wake lake so no jet ski's or speed boats. During the week I go fishing and have the lake to myself most of the time. Just me and the Loons lol. We just purchased a new Silverback29RE 5th wheel last spring and enjoy the extra room. Our C.G. is in the Rose City area with abundant wildlife and many lake surrounding it to fish in. I built my deck in 4'x8' sections so it can be disassembled and moved easily. It is bolted together with carriage bolts. Some of these pics have our old camper in them a jayco32bhs.

Oh yes our campground supplies the 100lb cylinders you must buy your propane there though but they come and get them to fill them. It is very reasonably priced too. I take my grill 20# cylinders there from home to fill because it's cheaper than to fill them here. They also supply us with fire wood for a very reasonable price and deliver it to our lot. I have two 100# cylinders because my neighbor moved out last fall and her cylinder was full so she gave it to me to use. Our campground is a family cg. with many activities throughout the year. It doesn't open until May 1st and closed October 31st if you want to deer hunt you can pay 11.00 a night to camp during deer season. Then they only have one bath house open for use because only the one has heat. We have full hookups but not all sites do but they do have honey wagon service for those that don't. Mostly the lakefront lots. We have wifi in our trailer we pay for through the local land line phone company. Also direct tv with our own dish.

Wiscamspin:

Where is your seasonal? We are from southwestern Wi, and have thought of trying a seasonal site within a couple of hours of opur home. Although we love the Mississippi River , we haven't found any that we would want in that area that meet our specs.

We are moving our new trailer we bought last fall to a seasonal spot this weekend. For the last few years we had a 17 foot Wildwood 17 XL Hybrid which we used to search around checking out campgrounds. Late last year we went to a campground that a business associate has a site at and has been bugging me to go check it out for some time. Both the DW and I fell in love with it right away and then pulled the trigger on a 2013 Wildwood 29BHBS. It has tons of storage space and I think it will serve us well in its new spot. I used it right up until late October last year before packing it up for winter.

Can't wait to get it set up and enjoy.
