My advise... being a cop and all (no one listens to me until it happens) is to get one!
Everyone I know didn't have one and said they would never need one.
with my trailer being 2 weeks old we took it to Saint Andrews campground in NB Canada
240 volt surge for over an hour because of a bad wiring time bomb.
campground owned facilities but the power company was blamed originally.
8 trailers damaged including ours.
800 dollars later we had the situation corrected.
One gentleman and his girlfriend (80 and 78) had their trailer lite up like the 4th of July. Microwave, fridge, air con all fried, and their trailer was 15 yrs old.
They got next to nothing.
That was Sept and we had to fight with their insurance co. for repayment which we got end December.
I installed a 30 am Progressive industries hardwire unit for the 259 it was selling for (if memory serves me correctly) and will not have this sort of nightmare again.
So stop thinking about it and like Nike says "Just do it".
