Most likely it was the best deal, at the time. Largely due to Internet shopping, "the best deal" has a short shelf life. Just like the stock market, it's hard to buy exactly at the bottom or sell exactly at the top.

Think of it this way, you have yours installed & protecting you.

Not too sure which model PI you had gotten however I just looked up Jet.com for the model I purchased years ago and HERE is what Jet.com is charging for it now. $296 is a great price for that specific model.

I paid $365 with shipping from RVUpgrades.com back in 2010 and they are now down to $327 plus shipping.

Tweety's has my model at $303. Curious as to which model you are talking about.

This saga is coming to a close. The dealership repaired the electrical damage. I needed a brand new microwave and a new converter. Somehow we got lucky and the A/C, Fridge and all the other electronics seem to have survived. Even the repair technician said somehow I got really lucky. I am posting a few pics. To ensure this episode is not repeated, I purchased a TRC RV surge guard Model 34830. So far so good. Just in time for us to move into the TT for a month while renovations take place.

Thank you all for your technical knowledge and moral support. If you don't have a surge protector...now you have a reason to get one.

The TRC units do the job until they breakdown. Then you have to replace the entire unit at your cost if out of warranty.

The Progressive Industries EMS units are modular in that you can usually resolve a problem with replacing a component inside the unit.

Plus the BIG difference is that the device is warranted for the life of the unit not just the purchaser.

My money is with the Progressive Industries.

This is good news, Frank. So glad to hear that you are heading out to actually camp. I hope other things don't start failing prematurely over time.

Now it is time to go and enjoy those Happy Trails!
