I think it's an excellent idea to buy one. You never know the kind of power your connecting to. It's cheap insurance.

Campgrounds can be pretty weird so far as electricity and water go. Suyrge protectors ands filters are good.


The Airstream is sold; a 2016 Nash 24M replaced it.

It is lke an insurance policy you don't need it until you do and then if you don't have it it is to late.

Amen to that! Once the surge hits, your stuff is toast. Until then, it's just cheap (relative to repairs) insurance.

I have had one for 5 years been RV'ing for 8 yrs.

After plugging into shore power and the polarity was reversed it cooked everything inside the trailer. I even use it when plugged into my house just in case of a lighting strike.
