30 to 50 surge protector.

I went on the forum search and I think I might have this right. If I buy a 50 amp surge protector and put my 30 amp conversion plug on I will still be protected. Does this make sense to all of you or am I just confusing everyone. I just don't want to have to but 2 surge protectors. Jim

rvjimmy,
You are correct. The 50 Amp surge protector will also protect you if you are attached to a 30 Amp post. "Not to worry." You don't need to buy two surge protectors.

Yes. When we bought our 50A from Progressive Industries I emailed them to ask and they responded very quickly that it will work for 50, 30 20. I think we got it from Amazon.

X3. I've used mine on 30 amp and confirmed it with PI.

Had a chat with Pusherman last night and he said the same thing, it will work on both. He should know as he is in that business. He is going to send me some info on getting one, I think I'll go with the hard wire one as it is harder to steal. Jim

As I read all these threads regarding surge suppressors I am struck by the disconnect between reading about what great people we RVers are and what thieves we are. Love thy neighbor -- but don't trust him.

My guess is he is talking about people stealing the surge protectors.

Me thinks so too. And while I assume the best of people, I wouldn't leave $350 on a pole either. Locked in the electric bay works for me. Don't want the hassle of a lock box and chain either. Just seems like a hassle factor I don't need.

I'm confused on this post what do they mean. Jim

I believe what he means is the theft of surge protectors that are plugged in at the pedestal. PI makes both a hardwired and an inline portable. You can buy a locking box that will keep the portable version somewhat safe, at least from honest people.

When I get one I will get the one that hard wires in. By doing this its in the compartment and out of site out of mind. As far as theft I think it occurs more from none campers than from campers, most will police themselves and their neighbors. JMHO. Jim

I have not bought one yet and have seen the locks, hard wired, etc.. Does anyone actually have first hand knowledge of a theft at a campground?
