Reading this thread:
Is my 30 amp Cable Toast?
got me thinking.
I know there could be other things that caused the issue in the above thread, but for arguments sake, lets say it was a surge.
In a case like this, would a portable unit be better? Since the portable unit would be between the campers power cord and the pedestal, when it cut the power, then nothing would be coming through the power cord.
With a hardwired unit, the power would still be running through the cord to the EMS. Meaning that if it is an over-voltage situation, then the potential is there to cause damage to the power cord and receptacle on the trailer. In this case it just resulted in a few burned prongs, but worst case scenario could be much more damage.
Any thoughts? Am I over thinking this?
