Only if you misswire it or if it does damage...

Funny but I've never read where someone's trailer took a direct lightening hit and their unit got fryed. Of course I would rather replace the surge protector than all the electronics inside my trailer.
Happy trails,

I also installed the EMS-HW30C last spring, easy install and no problems. I leave my TT plugged in all the time at home so it's nice not have the portable unit exposed the weather year round, like the 2+ feet of snow we have right now.

Happy trails,
I was in for a little service on my new Jayco, and one of the employees pointed out a 3 month old Jayco 5'er in for repairs. I believe the number he mentioned was $5000.00 in damage from a surge. He said to me, 'Get yourself a surge protector' and I did so immediately! I guess it doesn't happen often, but if it is yours.....

I am sure glad this topic is still active,
Here is the deal, I have an older 5th we keep at a year around camp site at a lake it takes a 50 amp plug. For all kinds of reasonings wife and I bought a 21' Jayco TT to travel in and it has a 30 amp. Ok,,,I sure can see the advantage of a inside surge, and if it was just for the jayco this is the way I would go. But as of late, a couple of years now, every time we go to the 5th the LED clock is blinking its power has been shut of and restarted due to a power failer.

So this little voice keep saying you had better get a surge protector, but I ask myself for both !~!!! So if I bought one of these portable 50 amp models for the 5th year around, then when we traveled un plug the 5th 50 amp take along on the jayco. Plug one of these small 50 to 30 amp adapters into the male from the extension of the Jayco TT then into the lower 50 amp female portable then would I be ready to go for power to the 30 amp Jayco ??
Also, are these portable models to large not to be stuffed up into the inter part of these outside metal campground boxes ,and then shut the lid to lock at the bottom to hide. Outher wise I will have to disconect the 5th to store such, ever time we leave due to theft ?
