Have since driven 500 miles, 1 week testing, hooked up 24x7 running A/C - all good. Good enough for me, so routed the new cable notches.

I agree as well. Very nice and clean install and all is out of the way and can be removed if replacement is needed...

I like that it is out of the way and one less thing to worry about leaving behind

Many thanks to Alex AVI for his project to install the surge protector inside. I hired an electrician to do a similar project after leaving my surge protector on the power pole at an RV park this summer. The RV park found the surge protector the next day and mailed it to me but I needed a better solution.

We rewired the exterior plug to a 30 Amp adapter and then wired a second 30 Amp adapter back into the transfer switch. Not as elegant as Alex AVI's installation but just as foolproof. I won't forget to plug it in and it doesn't have to be unplugged when we depart. If it fails I can connect the two adapters for an easy bypass.
