If you're talking about the power dropping down low and/or going up then an autoformer is what you need. I'm ordering a Hughes Autoformer. Surge Guard makes a similar product. Check them out and see if this is what you want.

What kind of issues are you having?

In almost 50 years of camping, I can't say I've had "numerous" problems when traveling.

me either, in over 94,000 miles and almost 5 years... and never used any type of ems or voltage regulator, or anything...

what 'symptoms' are you alluding to? what makes you think you have 'voltage' issues?

If you are dropping voltage, your ac will not function properly. Especially two ac units.

I had installed soft starters on the acs and you can barely hear them run after.

I also use a Hughes Autoformer. Best investments ever for the rv

Voltage stabiles

We have a Progressive Industries EMS and a Hughes Autoformer.

My husband does it all but sometimes we have plugged in and the electricity is wired wrong and he knows right away. One of the places was a KOA and one was our nieceís house.
Sometimes we wake up and microwave clock is zeroed out and we know we had problems during the night but the electricity is back on. The error codes on the EMS will show high or low whatever.

My husband is/was an IT guy and says you have to protect all the electronic stuff.

I donít know any technical terms except what I hear, you will get brownouts until something is damaged beyond repair if you donít protect all the electronics. Itís not cheap, I think we spent about $700 total on these 2 things. But he says he wonít go without them.
