Please go to the Progressive Surge Protector web site. We all who own one have said all that can be said to endorse Progressive. We know Progressive protects. A full timer told me about his experiences with others - only one he would recommend is/was Progressive.

Franks Autotransformers

This unit from Frank's Electronics not only protects your unit from surges, spikes, high and low voltage; it can "repair" incoming low voltage that can damage your air conditioner's compressor over time!

Yes sir, they are not cheap; but way cheaper than a new air conditioner or compressor repair; certainly cheaper than buying BOTH a EMS and autotransformer separately.

Saved me THOUSANDS at this campground!

Do you REALLY know what is in that pedestal?

NO......your meter looks like it pushed the 'tilt' button. So far, I've been lucky. Don't know if these type problems show up more in the Eastern areas or not because the campground are older and have more usage or just live in a more harsher element.

Each campground is unique but they can all have problems.

A 50 amp service, for example, can lose its Neutral in the pedestal (broken or burnt wire) and put 220 volts on your 120 volt appliances.

Campground transformer fault putting out higher or lower voltage than proper.

High resistance connections at the sockets due to plugging and unplugging "hot" (not tripping off the breaker before hooking up and disconnecting) or loose blades in the socket. This reduces available voltage because of the higher than normal resistance.

In the past I had a 30 amp extension cord plug ends corrode and heat up. It dropped the voltage and shut down my $3,000 fridge to the point where I needed to reboot a circuit board in the back of the unit. Now I have a 50 amp hardwired surge protector inside my RV away from the elements. It makes for a happy camper.
