I have one, it is always in use. My trailer is parked at my home and the surge protector is always inline. I treat it as part of the connectiing cord, unplug the surge protector then the power cord. Use a bike lock to secure it.

Also the one we use.
Mostly on the pad at home as the power company just realized that electricity needs working transformers.

I got the EMS-HW30C installed in mine we works fine and with the remote it even tells you what the problem was. Installing it in the inside allows me to also monitor the generator power coming in which I heard could also sometimes being trouble some. It also helps not to leave it on site when packing up.

A good one also protects against low voltage (resulting in high current flow) and that's more common than many may realize. We have one and use it.

That is one that did the job it was supposed to do. Point of interest surge protectors get hit by lots of brief unnoticed surges any time they are in use. Over time these little hits begin to add up and the switching circuits in the surge protector begin to slow down. and are more likely to let surges get through before the protection can react. I have seen recommendations for the protection of sensitive electronic equipment because of this response slowdown with age surge protectors should be considered a consumable item and replaced at least every three years. (Of course this recommendation came from a vendor of surge protectors.)

Make errors otherwise the Great Spirit realizes
you have finished your purpose on earth.
