You arrive at the campground –
about to connect your truck camper to the power pedestal-
there is a moment of hesitation.
Are you confident the pedestal is wired correctly?
Is there an open neutral? Are the lines properly phased?
What protection do you have against a bolt of lightning
that strikes a telephone pole a 1/2 mile from
the campground during a thunderstorm?
Should you encounter a surge in power, have you considered the cost of replacing your electronic equipment? Such as the computer(s) that is filled with your financial or medical records and family photos, Kindles/iPods, the microwave, refrigerator, HD television. The camper’s equipment such as slide-out(s) and jack motors control boards?
With today’s RV containing sophisticated and sensitive electronics ($$$)
faulty electric power or a power surge can damage these appliances or electronics
Question – should you encounter an electrical surge that damages your truck camper’s electronics, do you feel strong enough and know how to hand crank in your slide-out(s) and raise your jacks?
Two options from one manufacturer
Hardwire internally OR mount on the pedestal
Surge protectors are a necessary safety device.
Just as crucial to you and your family’s safety as the CO2/LP gas and smoke detectors.
