Power Surge Protector

I have a 2014 Tiffin Allegro and looking for a good power surge protector for my coach. Any good recommendations? Looking for the best product for the money. Thanks.

We have one from Progressive Industries, hard wired in our rig. We know it works. It's shut down the power in our rig several times for various reasons. It's also kept us from plugging in at bad posts. We wouldn't have an RV without one. If it's hard wired, you don't have to worry about someone trying to take it, but you can buy the portable ones.

There are a lot of threads on this subject. However it seems like most people prefer the surge protectors made by Progressive Industries, (myself included). Great RV protection and it has lifetime warranty.

Rather than "surge", your biggest threat is under-voltage. The EMS products from Progressive Industries protect against under and over voltage as well as surge... all with lifetime warranty, as mentioned above. And they really do stand behind their products with great customer service. They do sell a lesser "surge" protection product but, as under voltage is your greatest threat, EMS is the only way to go.

+20 on all the Progressive comments. We have the portable unit from previous 5er, so I just modified some ends and wired it inside the MH electric bay. It's really still portable if I ever need it to be.

I would not consider anything except the Progressive Industries. Use the HW50C if you want hardwired, or the PT50X if you want portable. They protect you against EVERYTHING!

Progressive Industries for me as well. I use the portable version. The life time warrenty is nice as well. A friend had his blow out in New Orleans last month, nice to know it's just a matter of sending it back for free repair. The fact that his coach suffered no damage was the main thing.

Agree with everything said about Progressive Industries. I opted for the hard wired one so I didn't have to worry about someone stealing it and not having to deal with a lock, etc. Plus, the hardwired one comes with a remote you can mount inside of your MH to monitor, and has field servicible parts in the event of an "event".

Ditto on Progressive. My first unit failed in 4 months and they replaced in no questions asked. Shipped one out of Ben before I could get themselves the old one. Bought a portable and wish now I would have gone with hard wired....one less thing to do when setting up.

I'll throw my hat on the PI PT50W. Saved my rig from huge brown outs at a Michigan State Park last summer. Rangers came over and told me I should just plug directly into the pedestal! Told them I trusted my Progressive to protect my rig, not them!

TRC---Surge Guard
Limited 1 year warranty
Lousy customer service
NON filed serviceable


Progressive Industries---Surge Protector
LIFE Time Warranty
GREAT customer service---tech service
Field serviceable


Easy decision........

Hardwired full bells/whistles with remote display is the way to go

I use Progressive for surge and Hughes for low voltage boosting.
