I think you'll be happy with the PI PT30c EMS. I also purchased one from CW a couple months ago when they went on sale for $215. I was also on the fence b/t this and the regular PI surge protector but at that price figured better safe than sorry.

I did a lot research at the time and the consensus on the forum was more is better.

Enjoy!

I've supplemented my progressive surge protector with the TRC Digital Line Monitor, which has high/low voltage alarms. I've put an angle plug in which I put the monitor on so I can watch readings going in & out of the trailer. We've never been close on low or high voltage so far, but the piece of mind being able to see what the current incoming voltage supply is makes me feel better in a busy campground with everyone's A/C's on.

J&P,
How much should the monitor cost?

Purchased mine from Camping World here locally. Cost was around $35, but you can probably find it cheaper elsewhere(Tweetys, PPL, etc.). Research and read reviews from others and see if its something you could use.

I just received mine and have a question. The operating instructions tell you to plug it into AC power and it will run it's tests. Is that with the TT plugged into the protector, or do you plug the TT in after it runs it's test?

Plug it in, let it run the test program, if all is well (no errors) then plug your TT into it.

that's the one I got too and just got it last weekend. Before, I couldn't justify the price but Camping World just started selling them for $215 and I also had a 10% off coupon. Best price hands down. Made in USA with a lifetime warranty!
