Uninterruptable Power Supply

First let me say Good Afternoon!
I camp stationary at a campground in Southern Indiana overlooking the Ohio River. As this is a fairly wooded and rolling area we tend to have power blips. Power to entire campground will go out for 1-5 seconds then pop right back on. No amount of protesting has gotten the issue resolved (it's power coming into campground, NOT anything at the campground). I'd like to get an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) similar to that being used on my computer. However I've not had much luck finding one capable of handling 110V - 30amp supply. I'm wondering if anyone else has come up with a solution for this? I'm trying to keep my AC, inverter, etc. from getting these blips/surges as I can't imagine it is good on them.
Thanks in advance, Cory

I expect something that could get your AC through a short power outage would have really big batteries (translate to $$$). I would look into a good surge suppressor to protect the electronics. I have my second Progressive Industries unit and it lets me get a good night's sleep.

You can do it, the issue is that:
1. It's expensive
2. Many require 230V input.

If your campground can facilitate 230V, APC can likely help you.

Unfortunately UPS modules are designed for linear loads (constant load, I.e. Servers, etc...) and not motor type loads. The AC unit, a vacuum, electric heat all will cause the system to transfer to bypass and not support load. 30A, 3kVA 120/208/240 UPS modules are available for around $1,200.00 for a basic unit with minimum battery runtime, you just may have issues depending on what is operating in your RV.
