Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough and reliable I bought this item several years ago and placed it on my power pole that provided electricity to my 27ft. travel trailer. One day I suddenly had no power and called the RV repairman. He found that condensation had shorted out the connection from the RV unit to the surge suppressor blasting a hole (literally, as though shot with a .38 bullet) in the suppressor's plug outlet (where the RV's connection went in) and melting a blade off the RV's plug! Thank you, Surge Guard, for stopping the destruction of my landowner's power pole!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Southwire Non-responsive On our first use of this product, the male plug had a burnt looking pin (hot side) and melted rubber around the pin when we unplugged from the electrical pedestal. This was at a Texas state park with about only 50% of the RV sites being used. No issues at all with the power service we had over the two nights that we were there. Tried to contact Southwire for return/replacement. Never got any kind of response for 2 weeks, not even an acknowledgement that they received our complaint. Decided to contact Camping World and they stepped up and agreed to refund our money. Decided to purchase a Hughes surge protector product instead.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works.......but This unit works as advertised and will certainly protect your event trailer from power surges, but be AWARE that the directions included with the unit state that after it trips, it must be thrown away and a new one purchased. It does NOT reset itself as stated by the Camping World post.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Portable Surge Guard Protectors Purchased item on-line through Camping World. It lasted three trips. The surge protector has a loose connection internally. I have plugged it in and get different readings every time and sometimes I receive no light indication at all. I used it in different receptacles and the same thing happened. I would not recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Surge guard This is the second one after having 1st replaced from defecting. It melts your power cord from camper which cost you even more to replace that too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Melted camper plug to surge guard Melted first time using it. Camper plug melted to surge protector. Surge protector started sizzling to camper plug in. Plug camper directly to electric pole every thing ok without surge protector.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Surge protector We purchased for peace of mind after reading about horror stories of poor electrical service in older campgrounds. Ours melted internally just out of warranty. Camping World retail employee told us it was supposed to melt to protect our equipment. I don't think so.... I will not purchase another one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Melted surge protector, trailer cable trapped We were leaving, turned off 30 amp breaker, could not detach trailer cord. Kept trying, finally had to use slot screw driver with help of neighbor, eventually disconnected. The slot on the power surge had melted. Green lights still on to reflect all fine afterwards. Power post registered good with melted power surge.

What does it mean when the 2 green lights dont light up?

heard we had a power surge last pm. No longer lights up. Is the protector ruined?
Asked by: Anonymous
Either there is no power coming through the receptacle or your surge guard is damaged. A multimeter can be used to check for power at the receptacle. You could also try plugging in the Surge Guard in a known working power receptacle to narrow down if the Surge Guard is damaged or not. You can contact TRC's Technical Support @ 800.780.4324 x 20311 (M-F, 8:00-5:00 EST) for further assistance or warranty returns.

Does this shut off power?

Does this unit include a manual reset button or automatically restore power once the power surge or power interruption has passed?
Asked by: HappyCamper
This product does not disconnect power to the RV in the event of a fault or surge, so there is no automatic restoring of power or a reset button.

What does it mean when it displays the reverse polarity LEDs

Asked by: Anonymous
Reverse polarity means that the pedestal has not been wired correctly, specifically the 'hot & neutral legs' were wired backwards. Correct hookup is +(Receptacle) to +(Plug), -(Receptacle) to -(Plug), Ground(Receptacle) to Ground(Plug).<p> Reverse polarity is -(R) to +(P), +(R) to -(P), Ground(R) to Ground(P).

is this adequate for rv vs trailer?

i need something simple for travelling in my rv & staying at different campgrounds each day while driving cross country. is this an adequate device for my RV? someone told me it only is good for trailers and not rv's.
Asked by: steve
Yes this is adequate for RV use. Motorhome of any class or pull behind of any type(5th wheel, travel trailer, pop-up etc), if it has a 30amp electrical system and uses NEMA TT-30/RV 30amp to connect to a power source, this surge guard can be used to help protect the electrical system.

What does the 1-Year Manufacturer Warranty Cover?

I brought one of these early last year, and it melted around socket where the trailer cord plugs into. Is this just what is supposed to do when it gets zapped by high voltage??? Or am I eligible for a new cord? Just wanted to check before purchasing another new one.
Asked by: Nelle48
TRC's warranty document can be downloaded <a href=http://trci.net/media/166590/90606e%20surge%20guard%20warranty%20information.pdf>here</a>. The portable surge guards by TRC are considered sacrificial and would be replaced by the manufacturer or a new unit would be purchased by the owner. Contacting TRC's Technical Support first would be suggested. <a href=http://www.trci.net/contact-us>TRC Contact Page</a>
