      Curtis (RVillage Founder) February 24, 2018 Portable. A definite MUST have. Here is the one I have. http://amzn.to/2EP5gnB Highly recommend. This is actually a pretty good deal. I think I paid 475.00 for mine.

      WNYBob February 24, 2018 Yes, I like and have a portable one. But look at an EMS over a SSP. EMS=Electric Management System over a Surge Protector.

      SouthParkSteve February 24, 2018 I have an older 1995 travel trailer--nothing too complicated electrically, other than perhaps the converter.  Do I really need more than just surge protection?

        RCAircraft February 25, 2018 I believe a quality MOV based transient voltage protector would do well for you. I have a Redwood fifth wheel RV which is loaded with electronics and do not use any full RV "surge" or "line conditioner" protection. I have fairly simple plug in "spike"/MOV...  more

      360TRUE (Paul & Gail) February 25, 2018 I agree - portable. I have the progressive 50 amp. Has saved my bacon several times. When it blew, company honored their warranty and sent me another easily. If hardwired, you need to submit documentation about who, how, when it was installed.

      FromNH February 25, 2018 I have pretty much the same protection with a portable one for half the price of a hardwired. I did invest in a cable lock though.

      Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) February 25, 2018 We have the Progressive Industries “50A” hardwired.  It’s an EMS, which includes surge and transient protection, but does more than that.  Very satisfied with it.  If you get a portable one, be sure to get some sort of mechanism to secure it.

      Steve and Donna Gordon March 5, 2018 We were thinking of getting one, but didn't realize you could buy one to hardwire.  Where do you hardwire it in? Before the fuse box?  or near the outside plug?  Sorry if this is a silly question, but just wondering.  We may do that in...  more

        Bruce & Linda (Omnibus) March 6, 2018 Not silly at all.  The AC electricity coming into our rig goes through a disconnect switch and then through the PI-EMS.  The output of the PI-EMS then goes to the transfer switch, which allows the coach to get power from the on-board generator i...  more
