I was also thinking of changing out the hard cord for a more flexible baloney, that would be more manageable in the future, and smaller with more amperage rating, we use it often in temporary installations in manufacturing plans, when they wanted it running right away, and then permanently wiring it while they ran,,, some day in the near future!!!

Found the posts!!!

Here's one of the ones TURBS posted with pics:
New CC question

Here's one that helped me better understand which plugs to get:
Surge Protector

After everything I have read, the Progressive Hardwire combined with the 'portable' install method is the direction I'm going. Now I just need to get my electrician/hubbie to install it

Ok, after reading here, I find a surge protector a must , I am looking at two ,34750 and 34850 . They appear to have the exact same protection features but are $150 difference in price , I am not looking to take the cheap way out ,but $150 is $150 . Any suggestions or if you know the difference between the two , they both have the same Joule protection ..

Personally and only my opinion.
Buy a progressive industries ems .
Made in the USA
Lifetime warranty.

I cannot comment on the two you've listed because you didn't list a brand name.

Further more you get the best bang for the buck with a progressive hardwired unit.
They have more protection then all the others I've seen.

Those look like Surge Guard model numbers. Like Turbs said, the Progressive Industries is the better unit, but the Surge Guards are still fairly decent.

The key is to make sure you're buying power protection and not just surge protection. I remember the Surge Guards had a chart on their website comparing their different models, and showing you what's not covered with their cheaper ones. Might want to look them up and find out the difference between the models.

I checked, these are Surge Guard numbers.
Remember, NO LIFETIME WARRANTY. You should research all of the positive stories regarding Progressive. I bought mine thru Technorv on Monday and received it today!
Free shipping AND NO TAX! Techno was a FR vendor at The Rally 2014! Trustworthy and very reliable!

Surge Protection Question

We just purchased a SurgeGuard surge protector. Being a newbie, do you have to figure out away to make them theft proof? Or do people pretty much leave them alone...

Securing Your Surge Guard

i am not criticizing Surge Guard. I bought Progressive. It came with a metal collar to lock the unit to the pedestal. Also I bought the suggested
Master Lock adjustable inter locking cable lock for $23. It fits thru the collar and around the pedestal.
Surge Guard sells a locking security box that locks your 2 cords together.
It is plastic. Read the blogs out there.
For added protection, you can fashion a smaller type chain around the neck of the unit and lock it tight to the cord, stays there, no need to remove and then have sufficient chain, 6 ft to wrap and lock to the pedestal.
I lock evetything down. I have had stuff stolen and recovered from the least suspected person. Why buy when you can STEAL seems to be todays moral failure. 😞
Yes, even fellow campers!!

They have a plastic box which locks the cord too the Surge Guard, however it will only keep the honest people honest. Even with the Progressive portable model with the steel plate, if someone wants it they will get it. When I replace mine it will be with a hard wired model.
