I don' t know why the mfrs don't install them on FW, I had them on MH and it is great to have.
As stated, the Progressive Industries Surge Protector protects you AND displays your amp pull, as well as voltage. I wouldn't plug in without one.
That would have been the one to get, maybe you can sell yours?
There is something called the Kill A Watt but that's only monitoring the outlet you are plugged in to, not the entire trailer line.
The reason they are not standard is people already gripe about the price of trailers anyway. Add more, and they still want it dirt cheap.
