Expert input on Surge Protectors

Please review the following:

The first two units are from the same manufacturer, but significant price differences (both show retail). Is one of them just overkill?



This next one is quite popular, and sold at Camping World and several other RV stores.

50 Amp Portable RV Surge Guard - 34750

Given the purpose is to protect your RV, and not just driven by cost, which unit (or is there yet another) would you suggest.

Can't comment on the others, but I have the EMS-PT50C and have been pleased with it. It picked up a couple of problems (low voltage at one campsite and a low frequency condition at another site- Disney's Fort Wilderness). Don't recall what I paid or where I got it, but if you search the internet, you can find it for much less than the $430 that progressive's site has it listed for. After a quick look I found this surge supressor at tweety's for $350. You may be able to find it for even less if you spend some time looking.
Good luck.
