We all know what can happen when lightning hits your home and your television gets fried. Well, a similar thing can happen when you plug your RV into a faulty power box at a campground. If there is a fluctuation in power coming into your RV camper or the power goes on and off, your electrical appliances may be wiped out. It is far cheaper to purchase a power surge protector than replace or repair your appliances.
Surge Protectors Can Save You Money in Repair and Replacement Costs
When you park in RV campgrounds that have too little, too much or fluctuating voltage at the electrical hook up, your electrical appliances are at risk unless you have a surge protector. This is not as uncommon as you may think. These fluctuations or surges in power can create havoc with your electrical systems and result in costly repairs or replacements. A power surge protector or guard can protect your RVs electrical system and appliances from being fried.
A surge protector automatically shuts off the power coming in to your RV when it senses an improperly wired pedestal at your site. It shuts off when the power surges, or when it detects low or high voltage. Once the voltage is within safe parameters the power is restored to your RV. Some surge guards have a time delay built in to protect air conditioner compressors from turning on right away after being shut down. It allows for AC head pressure to "bleed off" first.
