Are you plugging in at home on a Ground Fault Protected circuit? Then stop. These circuits have tendency to cause issues with MH Surge Protector circuits.

I can't imagine why. I've done it for nigh 20 years and never had an issue. The only thing a GFCI does is measure amps in & out - has no effect unless it opens the circuit.

We had exactly the same issue with our Progressive which repeatedly cut off power because of high voltage. Each time it would reset and restore power.

Since this occurred at our own RV site property, we called the power company and they tightened every connection from our pedestal all the way back to the distribution transformer. The problem never reoccurred.

The power company technician told me "you RVers are the only ones with equioment sensitive enough to react to this sort of thing." His opinion was that the high voltage transient was caused by a combination of poor ground connections in the circuit.
