Power and Surge Protection

Been a lot of reports of camper damage due to bad park power lately.

I was wondering how many use "protection"?

30 amps Surge Guard - came in handy the second time I used it. Several power outages last 4th of July at a 18 month old campground.

I got a good deal on it last summer:
Sale price $247.99 less $75 coupon = $172.99 for peace of mind

Have a Progressive Industries EMS-HW30C hard wired unit with remote monitoring on order. Like all my other mods for this year just need to find time to do them all.
