Probably is but we are talking about EMS and surge protectors.

Yes...sorry... back to scheduled programs.

Now that rinsing is on my mind. Are these units weatherproof...I live on the wetside of Washington state.

Yes very weatherproof. But if I am at a site where it isn't covered when hanging, or where it sits on the ground, I put it in a plastic grocery bag.

Waterproof!!

No need for a bag...unless you are in a flood!

If so I would have been long gone.

We have a lock down procedure but only use it in 'questionable' places.
I NEVER plug in anywhere without my PT50C. I have seen lots of issues with power over the past 6 years full time and so far I have been protected or just lucky. Either way, I will NEVER plug in anywhere without my PT50C. I even have a spare brand new one still in the box to use if my primary ever has to go back for service and it does have a lifetime warranty. It also has a chain around it to the power pedestal and hasn't grown legs yet.

Now we would all probably agree that power at our home or home base is good, right? Not in a campground that is old and in some cases not maintained well. But at my home base site 2-3 years ago which is in a residential area my PT50C shut off my power at 3:00am. I woke up when a fan on the dresser quit. I didn't think too much about it since power does go off occasionally. When I got up I looked at the PT50C and it showed a "high voltage" issue had occurred. I thought it was a power outage, but the voltage was right on at that time. At 3:00am the next morning it happened again. I went outside right then and looked and high voltage again. The PT50C shuts you off above 132 volts and it was showing 134 right then, but no power to my 5'er. I turned off my main breaker and called the power company. They came out and found a dying transformer which they replaced. My neighbors told me later they had been experiencing burned out light bulbs.

Again, I NEVER EVER plug in without my PT50C.

Surge Guard by Technology Research Corporation (TRC)
I have the hardwired 50 amp and also the remote monitor. This unit works awesome, it is pricey thou.
What I really like if there is a problem it cuts the power OFF before it damages anything and delays for 2 minutes the power back on.
The monitor also tells you what the problem is..........Not a code you have to look at a paper to see what's wrong.

I took a lightning hit last year and my TRC unit was fried. I called them and they said it was not repairable but they would sell me a new one at a discount.

I now have a PT50C. It is repairable.

What does the Pt50c do that the SSP50 does not?
