    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well so far We've had this surge protector for over a year (8 camping trips) and we never really needed it until our last trip when we discovered that 1/2 of the 50 amp service was not working - of course it was just as a storm was coming in and we were trying to get the trailer set up. We called the campground office and they came out immediately to fix it. While the 1/2 service probably would have reduced us to only one AC, the temps that weekend hit almost 100 with 85% humidity and that second AC was fairly necessary. We greatly appreciate this unit and are grateful to have it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work as intended I purchased this product in July 2014 when we purchased a new travel trailer. We keep our camper parked in a monthly lot rental and this unit is always plugged in. In September 2015, due to a lightning strike that affected several RV's up and down the row from ours, this unit did not work as we had understood it would. This unit did not stop permanent damage to our converter, microwave, and refrigerator due to a power surge. It appears that most customers, like us, trust that this product will work as intended, but until a fateful moment when the product is actually needed, you will never know for sure. I say this because all lights indicated that everything was working fine, but did not work as intended. Maybe mine was a defective product, or maybe these are just a way of providing a false sense of security. Either way, needless to say, I am very disappointed with this product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 50 amp surge Plug this in 50 amp plug, noticed smoke coming from my DVD player, I unplugged it. I then plugged it into the 30 amp plug. Came inside, smoke rolling from my microwave. Unplugged the surge. I had the manager from the campground come and check the power to the pedestal and it all checked out. Left the surge guard off and plugged my power cord in and everything worked. Of course my DVD player and microwave were dead and had to be replaced. All lights lit up. I am now afraid to use it now.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blown Inverter I purchased this product from Camping World, I used the surge protector and everything seemed to be just fine. The next time I tried to use the protector, it blew my inverter and I had to purchase a new inverter before I could go camping. The lights on the surge protector will not come on at all. This one appears to be wired wrong.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too many issues and not enough solutions We purchased the 50 amp and 30 amp surge guards for our 38' 5th wheel to use on our recent trip to Idaho. While easy to use, we noticed that we seemed to have electrical issues in our RV. We thought that it was our remote location (at Crater Lake), but eventually it became obvious that it was the 50 amp surge guard! Once removed, things returned to normal. We returned both units and now they are charging us a re-stocking fee which I feel is wrong! My recommendation - don't buy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Resolution of detachment power cord issue Save a one gallon plastic milk jug. Fill it with Quikcrete and water (including through the plastic handle). When you plug your detachable power cord into the surge suppressor (with locking hasp) and post at the camp ground, lock the gallon jug onto the power cord. If somebody wants the surge suppressor that bad, they'll have to either cut the 50 amp power cord, break the hasp or saw through the concrete handle,or carry all of it away together... and that's mighty heavy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right price for good coverage I really like this. Reasonable price for good functionality. The only drawback is that you cannot see the green lights in the sunlight. I had to come back out at night the first time I used it to make sure that is was functioning. Now, I am satisfied that it will do what it is supposed to whether I can see the green when I plug it in during daylight or not. I am very pleased with this and glad I waited until this came along.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value This is a good product. Good indicators to show many different types of faults. The only drawback is that the three green lights that indicate all is well are very hard to see in daylight and bright sun. If I cup my hands tightly around the unit, I can see the lights during the daytime. There is no problem seeing them at dusk or in darkness. Nevertheless, a good product and essential for safeguarding against RV park surges.

    Does the protector still protect when power drops and then resurges?

    Some places we have been have lost or dropped power an then had the power come up to norm. This ahs resulted in converter and appliance problems. After spending several hundreds of dollars in repairs we are trying to find a surge protector that will stop a low drop and a high surge with returns to regular wattage that will not go past the protector and not do damage inside.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    SKU#73995 will cut power if voltage drops below 90. However, to have actual Over/Under Voltage protection, you will need to upgrade to one of the models like SKU#81278 & SKU#90196 by TRC. Or Progressive Industries models SKU#56422, 56417, & 56420.<p><a href=http://www.trci.net/products/surge-guard-rv/comparison-charts>TRC Surge Guard Comparison Chart</a><p><a href=http://www.progressiveindustries.net/#!blank/pu6ux>Progressive Industries Unit Comparison Chart</a>

    Will a 30amp surge guard (with adaptors) protect a 50amp motorhome?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    No, the Surge Guard should match the electrical system of the RV. With adapter/pigtail, a 50amp Surge Guard can be used on a 30amp source.

    Can you connect between cord and unit or does it have to be plugged directly in campground outlet.

    Asked by: Sandy
    For the surge guard to work optimally and as designed, it has to be plugged in directly to the campground outlet. However, if a Voltage Regulator product is also being used, then the Voltage Regulator can go first then the Surge Guard.

    Does this have a time delay before it resets?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    No, it does not have a time delay. I just purchased one and it lets the power through immediately upon turning on the pedestal breaker. To test it I turned the breaker off to simulate a power failure and turned it on after a minute or so. It powered up right away. It may protect from surges but probably won't do anything for your AC compressor in a very short duration power outage.
