I have waited long enough and I am going to buy a 50 amp surge protector before our next trip.
One simple question - what would happen if you have a portable surge protector plugged into the TT and the power cord and a power surge occurs. Would the power cord be damaged if this occurs?
My reasoning is that it might because the surge protector would only sense a surge after it left the power pole traveling though the cord and shut down before it entered the TT. I don't think the cord would/could be damaged if the surge protector was installed beteen the power pole and the TT.
Don't misunderstand - I certainly will take a damaged power cord before frying my TT electronics, but I was just wondering.
