Here is how I wired in my "portable" so its out of site but can be unplugged to "test" pedestals or removed if I move on to a different camper or if it malfunctions I can just remove it and still have power.

Any protector that is 'one time use' is best entitled a scam. A protector must perform its function and remain functional. As even applies to protectors for lightning. We are not discussing that completely different device that is also called a protector. But even those protectors must remain functional after each event.

Grossly undersizing a protector to fail on any first anomaly gets naive consumers to recommend it. That increases profits. And is dependent on superior protection that is already inside every appliance.

Different devices (all called protectors) are for different anomalies. All must remain functional in order to perform a useful function.

Think you misunderstood Bobs point. He was referring to security. As in here today, gone tomorrow.

Sometimes amazing how much some people will spend on tools so they can steal something that costs less.

Where does one buy a protector for that anomaly?
