I feel that surge protection is a necessity with the wide variety of electrical quality found in campgrounds today. I've plugged into one pedestal to find it tripping brakers left and right. I moved to the next spot and found no problems. They ended up replacing that pedestal sometime within 2 months because there was a brand new pedestal when I came back.
Freak storms with electrical activity or just extremely high electrical demand by other campers can destroy electrical motors and appliances in your trailer. Why take the chance? The Surge Guard is worth every penny as long as you buy the locking device to prevent theft.
