Anyone use these # voltage boosters

Just ordered Hughes Autoformer Voltage booster 50 amp. Another 2015 A/S International camper recommended it to us. Going full-timing , so the premise made sense to us. Any pros /cons , experience with
these units ?

They work up to a point. Disadvantages are weight, expense, hassle of setting them up, and theft concerns.

Be aware that a truly large voltage spike will burn up the autoformer as will as half the electronics in your trailer.

Also be aware that serious voltage sag will drop below what the autoform can correct.

Thanks Jammer, hopefully we won't encounter those conditions. May I ask if this happened to you ?
