Surge protectors

What's the latest opinion of 50 amp surge protectors. ( in line at post )

I see units everywhere from $100 to $400.

Thanks. I've seen that link. Should I go for the 30 or 50?

You go for the size of your rig... most likely 30 amp. That way the plug and power all match.

X2 on the EMS-PT50C . It has saved me more than once. I never ever hook up without it.

What does your trailer have? A 50 amp will be next to useless if you have a 30 amp trailer..

I would NEVER plug into any power outlet without one...

I have a Progressive SSP50 for sale, if anyone is interested (just send pm). My previous RV was 50 amp but my Jayco is 30 amp so I don't need it.

Just to clarify......

Many times, this thread included, the term "surge protector" is used generically. Let's make a clear distinction here.

A "surge protector" in its true sense only suppresses very high, short duration voltage spikes. It does NOT protect you from the more common problems of improper voltage and mis-wiring.

An Electrical Management System (EMS) does much more than a surge protector. In addition to surge suppression it will shut of power for under/over voltage, open ground, open neutral, reverse hot/neutral.
