A picture of the unit would help. It would depend on if the surge protector is a outside weatherproof one or if it has to be put inside out of the weather. If outside type then it would be a easy matter of getting adapters and hard wiring the adapter to it so you could plug in to a campground or rv park outlet and then plug your rig into it.

If it is a inside type then you will or should have a wiring diagram / schematic to see where you can hook it into the wiring on your rig. I assume your rig is also 50 amp. Post a picture of the surge protector if possible and the name of the manufacturer.

it is a 50 amp hard wired but my rig is 30 amp. the 26.5 RKS is on order so i just wondered if there was anyone out there that had a simular rig and how much room there is to wire up a surge protector. thanks, tom

Tom in case you don't know it 50 amp is for a 220 volt service and 30 amp is 110 volt service. a adapter for 30 to 50 only uses one leg of the 220V service. another factor is grounding so the skin or ground won't be hot. There should probably be room to install it if the unit is not to big.
