About ten years ago a friend of mine was driving his brand new Freightliner on the Ohio turnpike and was struck by lightning, so needless to say there was nothing but the rubber tires touching the ground. It completely destroyed the electrical system. Like others have said, when lightning strikes your pretty much toast (no pun intended)

I've been saved many times by my faithful ole Surge Guard from power problems at campgrounds over the years, but I have no confidence it could protect me from a lightning strike. I don't think anything could.
