Don't know about that but Progressive gives a lifetime warranty on their surge protectors. Have read that they have replaced them for various reasons.

I've got my SurgeGuard on my coach at home. If I get a bad jolt at the house, I'll move into the coach.

I got around today in removing the 2 32" tvs today. What I found was incredible.

I don't know who they have installing these things, but they must participate on the WWE. Both of these tvs have standard 200x200mm mounts, M6 screws. What I found on both sets, were stripped out screws. No use trying a screwdriver, they were totally striped. Had to use some 4" vice grips to remove screws and believe me, it was not an easy job. Inside a 2" wall cutout with vise grips!! Like to have never got them to break loose. Then, a 1/4" turn at a time on 8 of these screws.

I just don't understand why someone has to treat stuff like this. It is not called for.

The "Whole house" Surge supressor is useless in a surge, it is a spike supressor, I should now, there is one in my radio room here (Just in back of the master power panel, Where better for the radios than near the master power panel, they suck power).

An RV power guard type surge supressor.. now that would have prevented the damage.
Home is where I park it!
