In cases like that, it's usually low voltage that is the problem. Basic surge protection devices often do not monitor for that condition. You need the more advanced models, or an inexpensive plug-in volt meter that you keep an eye on when the power is suspect.

True that. A low voltage cut-off will save a lot of trouble more times than a surge protector. I know our original A/C died from low voltage over a long period. Built-in management system including low voltage and surge is the next new improvement, after the new tankless hot water, the ProPride, and a better 3-stage converter that we installed already.

Keeping Surge Protector Plugged In?

We have an external Progressive Industries surge protector but it doesn't want to say plugged in at the pole. Curious, how do folks handle this? It seems to heavy to stay plugged in. Thanks!

I carry a small block of wood and an adjustable bungee cord. If the Progressive seems to want to fall out, put the block on the back of the plug and bungee it. This seems to be a problem only on older pedestals where the plug is somewhat worn.
