You know it would be nice if you included the relevant information such as this in your original post...

It doesn't make my response any different, but the fact that you knowingly plugged into a post in that condition and then question whether or not your surge protecter is doing it's job or not makes me wonder about your thought process...

Go with your gut... that Park Ranger is a fool and is not looking out for you.

Some park rangers are very helpful and realistic about the power situation at their parks. And some seem to be in denial about low voltage, chronic outages, grounding problems, overloaded transformers, and electrical system components that have outlived their usefulness.

Sorry. We are newbies and my husband made that call. I was tired and it was late when I made the first post.

Thanks. I was very concerned about the constant shut off of power over and over. Thanks

Trust yourself and your instinct. Nobody will look out for your things like you will. I didn't mean for my post to sound harsh or be offensive.

The way your original post read was like everything was normal and the park Ranger just doesn't like to deal with people using electrical protection.

There are several plug in testers that will tell you if a wiring condition exists before you hook up. They are inexpensive and can be helpful in addition to your existing protection.

Thanks. No problem. What device are you talking about that we can get to plug in and test? Thanks. I appreciate all help.

Here are a few products that I would recommend getting.

The 12VDC digital voltage display will give you a close output of your 12Volt battery status, from inside the TT, if you already do not have one. The LED displays that come with the TT's are useless.

The 110VAC digital voltage display can be inside your TT and you can take a quick glance on what the CG voltage is.

And finally the Kill-A-Watt meter is the one I mostly use when hooking up to the pedestal. I have a 30 to 15 amp adapter plug and use that between the pedestal and the Kill-A-Watt it displays the CG voltage.
