1) I always use "protection" when dealing with the unknown
2) I ALWAYS turn off the breaker at the panel before I plug in or disconnect the shore power plug
3) I ALWAYS use my Franks Autotransformer (in fact it is now permanently mounted in the wires going to the power center)
4) I always use a pressure regulator in my city water hose. I have seen water pressures over 100 PSI at my brother's house (I was helping him trouble shoot why all his faucets were leaking and he had city water)
