We got a surge protector from Camping World at 30% off the internet price. They were great about honoring the internet price; we just had to bring in a printout. They also had a free lock, free cleaner with a $25 purchase and little cups of ice cream as a treat! Our local branch of Camping World has been great to do business with.

I got this one: Amazon.com: Technology Research 10175 Surge Guard 50 Amp Voltage Regulator: Automotive

They have both 50A and 30A versions. I liked it because it has a line conditioner and sturdy legs and handles which I can use to chain to something to secure it. A determined thief can probably cut the chain but will deter more than the plastic holder the other inline surges have. Plus this way even if they run off with my cable they will not get the surge.

A number of brands and models have been discussed here on the forums. I purchased the EMS--PT30C from Progressive Industries. Seemed to me from reading the comments that this is one of the preferred ones.

More info here: EMS-PT30C
