The 30 amp one is about 100 bucks more than an equivalent surge/low voltage cut out unit from Camping World. I know some members recently bought units and may want to share what they paid.

I will back up Herk on the need for something more than a good power monitor / surge unit and as anyone who is a regular on here knows I was pretty dead set against using one earlier this year. DUring our trip through the northern states and southern Ontario this summer there were 3 campgrounds that the Progressive Industries EMS unit actually shut power down to the trailer due to low voltage conditions. Just using the Keurig coffee machine on one occassion killed power. So as I said at the start I am now a believer and there will be a Franks unit in our trailer somewhere before we leave in July for Goshen again. DO yourselves a favour and at least give the Franks unit fair consideration I don't believe you will regret it. BTW 2 of the CG's were quite well used KOA's the 3rd was a very popular and beautiful CG just outside Cookstown Ontario.

Go with Herk, he knows. A surge protector alone will not do the job. Low voltage is a very big problem at RV parks. A electric managing system is a better choice. Mine shuts off.
