I'd suggest you save your money and buy the best. Progressive Industries makes several models to meet your needs and,,, they warranty the unit for life.

Autoformer is a completely different unit than a surge guard. The autoformer boosts voltage when it goes low. A surge guard shuts off shore power completly when it goes low.

Ok...so, what's better...?

Is it safe to say with this you won't need a surge protector. .?
