To purchase an RV Surge Protector (portable model), within Ontario Canada:
- Visit a few local RV dealers. Many of them will "special order" it for you.
(change Toronto to your city location).
If buying from ebay or RV Dealer, remember to add additional 13% taxes.
If wondering, I recently bought a 12V troller motor for my Canoe via kijiji surfing. The seller only used it 4 times and due to illness, he couldn't boat anymore. Luckily, I was vacationing in his town (which is 8 hours from my location) and stopped into his house. Got the new unit for 1/2 retail selling cost. And, saved taxes as well. Thus, it does save to "surf around" kijiji - even if item is within a different city.
Do "search around" because some places charge 2 to 4 times more - compared to others. Especially the RV dealers. Know your prices before buying....
Also.... If visiting or camping in the north States, I hear Camping World sells the portable units for approx $240. Camping Word members get a discount as well. And being part of your HTT (not seen within your HTT's storage compartment), I'm sure there's no duty / no processing fee (when coming back into Canada).
I agree with your Portable device wants as well. If it acts up or you need of a different trailer, simply disconnect it. Then, re-connect or transfer to a different (future) trailer.... Much more portable compared to a `hard wire`model....
Hope these ideas help...
