Surge Protector

Curious what type of surge protectors everyone is using for their MH. Hard wired or not?

I currently use this:
SSP-50

I will upgrade to this in the spring:
EMS-PT50C

The first one saved me in Myrtle beach this summer. There was an open neutral. I could have had a mess without the tester first.

I use the Surge guard 34750 portable surge guard for my fiver. I just put a pad lock on the breaker box to keep it from being stolen.

Progressive industries hardwire 30 amp. Haven't had an issue that I would "needed" it yet, but isn't that the point? Really hard to get the magic smoke back in all those boxes once it's out!

I want to say I paid $220 w/display from amazon. Then a few bucks for a few feet of Romex wire from HD or Lowes.

Part of your decision should be "if I had a hard wire,where would I put it? How hard will it be for me to put it there?"

There are some pics floating around here (search: surge protector) of owners that included plugs on both sides for easy removal. Mine was an easy install as power comes in to my TT in a storage compartment so I just put it there.

I also hear that PI has awesome customer service and lifetime warranty.

I use Surge Guard 34560 50A Hardwired protection on my 5er. I have plenty of space behind the fuse box and don't need to worry about getting it ripped off. It also has a remote wired digital read out. It's treated my good so far.
