X2 for sure

Info is correct. Too much protection stifles normal range of reasoning. It is widely known that the majority of RV issues come through the pedestal.
Not to belabor this longer than has already been spoken, the REASONS are many!
Reduce the risk as you deem appropriate.
Read the other blogs within FR and Keystone forum and you can identify
POTENTIAL risks of the normal camping experience.

My????? Is does a person need to buy both a 30amp and a 50amp? How can you tell a good brand from a bad one?

Do your homework before deciding.

No. Install the unit that has the same rating as your unit. Also suggested is the hardwired unit for security purposes. The pedistal plug in can be easily pilfered.
Turbs had a great idea which I ponied off of for an emergency bypass installation method.
You can tell good from bad by researching the company and reading the reviews.

X2 on Huntsville Bubba's comment BTW.

Also, TVSS is the goal. Chucklehead park wiring is the main culprit.

I am going to get the progressive 50 amp before next trip out. This weekend watched 2 people having major problems at campgrounds. I have been reading up on them but after the fiasco I witnessed this weekend I am sold.

Surge protecters

Ive had our progressive C50 for3 yrs. Two weeks ago I plugged it into a pedistal, the unit code said replace procter. but the unit worked.. two days later I plugged in gain the unit wouldnt turn on the power to the rig. It said Low voltage. I tested the pedistal with my meter the voltage was ok. Sent the unit back to the fact. they replaced the unit . Said the unit waswater dammaged.
