Electrical Protection

For recent Entegra buyers, did you need to add a surge protector to your coach, or does Entegra come with that protection standard?

The transfer switch has some surge protection built in however, it does not cover high and low voltages. These are what can toast your electronic. I use the Progressive Industries EMS-50HWC, it is more than surge protection it also protects against high and low voltages, open neutral, open ground, reverse polarity.* Great unit.

Some people go with a portable unit that you plug into the pedestal each time you camp. Personally, I like the hard wired version as its always there and I don't have to think about it. With the portable unit, I think people can get forgetful and not hook it up. Only takes one unprotected brown out and there are $$$s out the door.

In my last coach, it went in the compartment with the power cord and transfer switch. My assumption is that when my Entegra comes in, the dealer will install in the same general area - makes sense anyway.

We use the Progressive unit also, but we use the portable unit. We purchased ours from Lawrence RV products. We also bought our Tire Pressure Monitor System from them. Great folks to deal with.
