portable surge protector

So, this is the best one to get for a 2015 Sunseeker? EMS-PT30C RV Power Protection with Surge. It is $310 on Progressive website. On Amazon, it is $261.56 with free shipping. The order is sold and shipped by Amazon, but the product is by Progressive. The description is:Progressive Industries PT30C 30 Amp Portable Electrical Management System. Same thing (?) only $50 less.
They also offer Master Lock 3' Cable. Progressive Industriesí offers a Master Lock 719D Laminated Padlock and Cable. This is the perfect lock to secure your Portable Surge & Electrical Power Protectors to campground pedestals.
$14.95. This can also be picked up locally. So good to go????

Go 4 it! Actual testimony

Have 50amp same system and it is in CONSTANT use, daily, as our Silverback sits on her pad in GA mountains until next trip in September.
I also have the cable Master Lock described. My KEY BROKE IN THE LOCK after a couple of uses. Replaced for free immediately by TechnoRV.com FOR THE REPLACEMENT I WENT TO ACE HARDWARE AND HAD A BETTER QUALITY KEY (of harder composite) made.
This week I went to the mountains and checked the rv and planned on a quick overnight. 60mph winds, VIOLENT THUNDERSTORMS WITH PLENTY OF LIGHTNING, SEVERAL POWER LOSSES AND BACK WITHIN 2 hours of HELL and PROGRESSIVE WAS WORKING IT's BEST!! Power restored each time with 2 minute ac delays....
WHAT A GREAT INVESTMENT!

After the surge suppressor then the next must have is a TPMS. That way when you are plugged in at campground you will have piece of mind and when you are rolling down the highway you will have piece of mind, piece of mind makes camping so much more fun!!!!!!!!!!!

it's already been said many times but having a surge protection / electrical monitor seems like a no brainer. we were in a campground last night watching the lighting show and suddenly a bright flash of light and most rvs lost their power. turns out these were the ones that had protection. within a couple of minutes the protection devices reset themselves and we had power again. would we have suffered damage without one? don't know, but I do no that we did not suffer damage by having one! nor did any of the other rv's that had one. i'm sure this included both progressive and surgegard units, both 30 and 50 amp. they worked!!!

My hard wired 50 amp Progressive protector is always in the circuit and protecting our RV and is protected from the sticky finger bunch that want to walk off with them.

I have portable surge suppressor, I trade campers often and I try to stay away from anything electrical. I keep mine locked around the post, it keeps honest people from walking off with it. No need to try to stop a thief

This is great information. Thanks to everyone for their input. I've read all posts, my question is, I have a Grey Wolf 22RR TT, should I get the Progressive 30 or 50? Price is not a concern as I understand the meaning of value. Is 50 too much?

If your trailer is 30 amp you can get either. If your trailer is a 50 amp you have to get a 50 amp. A 50 amp will work fine on a 30 amp trailer it just won't use one of the circuits. 50 amp trailers use 2 hot legs of power. Do you know if you are getting a portable or hardwired unit.
