Your best protection during a severe lightning storm is to disconnect the shore power cord until the storm had passed. That way if there is a nearby strike it won't have a path into your RV.
The strike would have to hit your RV directly which I hope will never happen.

Thanks for the advice. Last summer, within a period of two weeks, we had two weather related problems here at home. We had direct lightning strikes in the yard, frying our electric dog fence as well as many small appliances - surge protected.
Unplugging makes huge sense! But sometimes it just needs to be stated. Truly appreciated!!
