Went dinner at a nearby Mexican restaurant with some fellow campers tonight. Came back and the microwave was showing zeros instead of the time. Checked the PI EMS and it was showing a PE04. So it had shutdown for a low voltage while we were gone, and then powered backup when voltage was safe. Thus saving wear and tear on my AC.

That happens a lot to me also. Remember, a lot of RV parks are old. The state park I'm hosting in now for my 5th summer dates from 1950. Initially it didn't even provide electricity at the sites. 20 amp was added first, then 30 amp, and now some sites have 50 amp, but the wiring hasn't kept up with the increased load so voltage issues are present when it is hot. How many more RV's today have 2 a/c's, microwaves, washer/dryer's, etc.?

Yep, my PT50C is the first thing I plug in and the last I unplug every time.

What did you order? A surge protector or an EMS?

We got an EMS from Amazon and it is fantastic. Granted, we use a cable and lock it into the podium 'cuz it ain't cheap!

We use a surge protector, water pressure regulator & water filter. Cheap insurance. No problems to date.
