POLL: Do you use surge protection?

Just curious how many folks use electrical surge protection for the AS?

Not yet but I have considered it. I do use a Kill-a-watt monitor to view campground voltages.

I was just shopping for a TRC Surge Guard 34750 - but the reviews on performance and customer service have me wandering if it is worth the cost. I have a 30 amp that I used on our prior travel trailer but need a new one for 50 amp service.
are there recommendations Surge protectors other than the TRC Surge Guard 34750?

Yes, and I am glad!

Have used my surge protection for the past 3 years, never found a problem until this spring. Wasn't going to use the surge protection in a regional park, but thought what the heck. Plugged it in and got the error message that there was an open ground. Checked a couple of other sites and all were the same.

Alerted the campground ground managers, who promptly fixed all the power monuments.
