Ok, let me be clear about what I have, use and recommend. It's the Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C, which is hard wired inside my electrical bay of my Newmar Canyon Star. Mine is wired before the transfer switch & does not provide protection should any issues arise with my Onan auxiliary power unit (APU). The chance that my APU hiccuping is far less than a campground's electrical power pedestal. In retrospect, I probably would be better served to have had it wired so that it would give protection from both external (campground) & APU (generator) electrical sources. At the time, just didn't think of it. Might have it changed sometime.
Hope this helps with your decision, but any protection (surge guard or EMS) is better than none.
