surge protector

We are new to airstreaming. We have a new to us 1987 excella. It was updated at Jackson center with new wiring and plumbing 2010. The trailer has 2 ac and 50 amp cord. Looking to buy a surge protector. We stay mostly at state parks with 30 amp service. Would you buy a 30 or 50 amp surge protector?

Thumbs up Welcome Aboard....

50A....might as well be able to run both AC's if the occasion arises.

Why Progressive? Quality, warranty, features.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

Buy a 50 amp, and a 50-30 amp adapter. That way you're covered either way.

And X2 for Progressive.

Nothing better than Progressive I'm aware of. Never one returned and with the lifetime it's hard to beat. Good job there, you will love it!
