I had one of those for my 30A MH last year and was going to get one for my new rig this past spring. However, when I saw all the hassles that people were getting from park owners, accusing them of ridiculous things such as causing electrical problems for others, I decided to get the Hughes PWD-EPO series, instead. It does basically everything the autoformer does, except it simply shuts down at low voltage, rather than changing the amperage. It also automatically restarts once it finds power has stabilized for a set period of time, which I believe was 30 seconds. It also has a bluetooth connection, so you can see what's going on with it without leaving your coach. It's a great buy for just over $200.

Yes. I also have redundant protection too. It can't hurt.
