Those with portable surge protector
While plugged in at your home do you always use your surge protector?
I can see why to always use at campgrounds because of lots of things there. High demand on power causing low voltage- high voltage-bad wiring-etc etc. But at home those are not near as likely to happen. Just curious what other do.

I do not surge protector at home - only at campgrounds. But all wiring, circuit breakers, box, plug, ect for the home power setup is only a year old.

Donít use it at home. I know exactly how it was wired, with what materials and how old it is. Should be good to go!!

I use a 30amp surge protector at home and a 50amp EMS unit at campgrounds.

Potable PI Unit
It is plugged in FIRST CG, at Home, at friends etc

I have NO control over what the Power Company does
Got it and it would be silly NOT to use it

I use mine at home. Surges/brownouts happen too often. I see it like insurance. I never need it until something bad happens. Then, I'm glad I have it.

Always use it, home and away. There are a lot of variables before the power even gets to my home.

Stuff happens. Anywhere.

If your not using it all of he time, why use it at all.
Even new wiring can develop a fault.

Your neighbor could cause a BIG voltage drop. Most houses share a transformer with a few others, just like a campground.

I just plug it in out of habit. It's free to use so why not.

I use mine at home out of habit and for cheap insurance.

Mine is hardwired so obviously I use it at home, but if I had chosen the portable type I would still use it at home.

It's never plugged in unless the surge protection is used.

I run two. My coach has a built in Progressive system that came with the coach. When camping I plug a $100 SurgeGuard portable into the shore power box. I figure if it takes a hit, it will save the built in system and I can stay up and running, then buy another.
