RVUpgrades -- New! Surge Guard 30 & 50 AMP Voltage Regulators

03/01/10 - New! Surge Guard 30 & 50 AMP Voltage Regulators

March 1, 2010, 3:02 pm

Dont Worry About Low Park Power Again!
Todays RVs contain advanced electronics including computers, TVs, satellite receivers, microwave ovens, air conditioners and other sophisticated appliances. Poor power quality entering an RV can not only effect the longevity of electronic equipment and motors, but can lead to thousands of dollars in repairs and create frustrating, unnecessary travel delays.

In addition, the Surge Guard Voltage Regulators are the first boosters that include intelligence with easy-to-read LED status and fault indication panels. These LEDs show ground status line conditions as well as indicate the under/over voltage conditions of each output line. This product is designed to be fault tolerant so that it can not be damaged by an open neutral that results in high voltage on one of the incoming lines.
In the Low Voltage (Boost) Mode the Surge Guard Voltage Regulator raises the output voltage by 10%over the incoming line voltage. In the Bypass (No Boost) Mode the unit becomes a bypass element and simply passes the input voltage directly to the output. In the bypass mode the unit exhibits minimal insertion loss.

Using the Surge Guard Voltage Regulator in conjunction with a Surge Guard RV power protection product provides the ultimate combination of low voltage and Surge Guard protection. The Surge Guard must be plugged in after or down stream of the Surge Guard Voltage Regulator. A variety of Surge Guard products protect your RV from: High/LowVoltage, Open Neutral, Miswired Pedestals, and Surges.

I put up the piece as it was given to me. They must have moved the location or modified the URL info.

At a high level, no difference. Some at the detail level of how it operates, though. I think the Surge Guard unit has better power monitoring (diagnostics for park power) and easier to read display.

These are the same units that are sold at Camping World for less especially if you are a club member.

My opinion is that when it comes to low voltage situations at questionable RV parks and other locations in the boonies, the Powermaster will do a far better job at about the same price. I have heard that the Hughes autoformer has had multiple problems which forced a closure of the company followed by someone else taking over. And then there is another company making these called Franks Autoformer. Not too many good comments on that one either.

This thread started about talking about the Voltage Regulator manufactured by TRC (Surge Guard). If you look at the control board of TRC's regulator, it is not much different than the Hughes controls. The big differnce between the two is the transformer(s). The TRC unit is not potted. In my estimation this is an accident that when it happens, an RV will burn to the ground. The line anyalization feature can be purchased for around $5.00.
The Powermaster Voltage Controller is another option. The transformer(s) are potted and the controls are unique that they have eliminated most of the problems with voltage controllers. I don't think that you will find many people saying that they have had prolems with their Powermaster.
