Goshen Surge Protectors for purchase?

We have yet to get our surge protector for our new unit. DH has decided we will wait til we go to Goshen. I think from what I've heard that there will be vendors there setting up shop and I was hoping we could buy a good quality one there. Any idea if this is so? Hoping from all the endorsements I've heard about that maybe Progressive Industries will be there??
Thanks!

Yes they do but are you going to plug in your RV prior to that? If you are how would you know if there are issues with the RV park power. If there are issues with the power that you plug into, it could be low volts, that would cause damage and you will not know for some time. I know that one would cost more in Canada but I would not plug in without a power management system. Good Luck

A surge protector saved our rig while in Montrose, CO. Wouldn't be without one. We're ordering a Progressive for the 5er.

I am quite interested in the Progressive Industries brand due to the lifetime warranty and it seems a lot of people have been getting them and through that I have heard about their excellent customer service post purchase.
If I wanted to get one and have it installed close to Goshen if we were to head out there a day or so early, anyone know of a place I could pre-arrange to have this done?

If you wait until you get to Goshen, I have an extra surge protector, I'm on the parking commette, You can use my extra portable 30 amp plug in if you want. Just find me before you plug in, I shouldn't be hard to fine. If you need 50 amp sorry can not help..........

Thanks gljurczyk, I very much appreciate the offer. I might take you up on that until DH can install one on ours! I will let you know.

We actually installed a Surge Guard in our Wildcat just a couple of weeks ago. It comes with an optional display unit which we have not yet mounted because we are unsure how to run the cable from the unit itself to near the main door. I hope this query can be answered in Goshen.

Not knowing how far you'll travel to get to Goshen, I think you're taking a chance if not using a surge protector now. I ordered a Progressive, EMS, via Amazon
