Surge Protector

We purchased a 2011 Winnebago Adventurer. Does anyone know whether it has a built-in surge protector and if not, would it be a good idea to buy one?

Check your manual and electrical panel. Between the two of them you should be able to read about it, or see the data for it. Or, call Winnebago with the VIN.

You are correct but we were given a stack of manuals about a foot thick and I have been too lazy to dig through all of them.

Very few RVs come with them, check manual as cat320 mentioned.

Search this forum for countless threads on them....
My preference is Progressive Industries get it from www.RVUpgrades.com a forum sponsor.

My $.02 is you REALLY need to dig through them to save yourself major mega hassles later.

Progressive Industries has the best customer service you will ever get. You need a good surge protector to protect your electric circuits and appliances. My Progressive SP took a big hit last time out and saved me a lot of money. I just sent it in to be fixed and the President/owner said it would be fixed free of charge.

Old dude 66

If one didn't come with your Motor Home It would be the best investment you can get to protect you MH electronics.

As billieg stated Progressive Industries SP is one of the best on the market. There are others out there. You can get either a portable or built in makes no difference, just get one.

I checked the manuals and called the dealer. There wasn't one in the unit so I purchases a high end hard wired Surge Guard surge protector and installed it this afternoon. Not too hard of an install.
