Lightning Strike Near CG

Well, my PI/EMS earned it's keep last night, and probably saved me a few bucks

We had a rain storm with wind and plenty of lightning pass through late last night (northeast of Tulsa) and from what I have heard a handful of folks incurred electrical damage to their RV's. Representative of the damage: MH's can't raise levelers, couple TV's and amplifiers, electrical receptacles, circuit boards, etc.. A Direct TV truck came into the CG a short time ago and I was told that a couple Direct TV satellite systems were fried as well.

I slept through the whole event

With our new JayFlight, I took steps to install a PI/EMS identical to yours Bob. Glad to hear you had a positive experience with yours in the last 24 hours!

Progressive Industries Electrical Management System. The link I referenced in my prior post provides some detail.
