We took our new rig camping last week.
We visited Audubon state park in NW Kentucky as our first stop.
When we arrived I did the mandatory wasp nest check in the power post.
Yep there was a small nest! Sprayed same....
Plugged in and moved on to jacks and water etc....
Wife yells later there's no power to microwave nor AC.
I go to post and the LED on my power wire is on.
I go inside and the progressive surge protector is giving hi voltage fault.
It was reading 133 volts.
That's all. Polarity good, ground good etc just over voltage.
I looked at the cheat sheet and it says it allows 132 volts max.
I was 1 volt over! I thought about it a minute and then flipped the bypass
switch. Outside temp was 90 and muggy and going up from there.
No way we were gonna go 3 days without the AC running.
What would you have done?? There was nothing the camp ground could
do but complain to the power company. The PC might come out and switch
them to a lower tap but I bet not. I figured the PC was running hi in order
to pump a few more KW out to the grid which was humming due to the heat.
The down side was I did not have surge protection and of course we had
a thunder storm the 2nd night!!
