Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough and reliable I bought this item several years ago and placed it on my power pole that provided electricity to my 27ft. travel trailer. One day I suddenly had no power and called the RV repairman. He found that condensation had shorted out the connection from the RV unit to the surge suppressor blasting a hole (literally, as though shot with a .38 bullet) in the suppressor's plug outlet (where the RV's connection went in) and melting a blade off the RV's plug! Thank you, Surge Guard, for stopping the destruction of my landowner's power pole!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Southwire Non-responsive On our first use of this product, the male plug had a burnt looking pin (hot side) and melted rubber around the pin when we unplugged from the electrical pedestal. This was at a Texas state park with about only 50% of the RV sites being used. No issues at all with the power service we had over the two nights that we were there. Tried to contact Southwire for return/replacement. Never got any kind of response for 2 weeks, not even an acknowledgement that they received our complaint. Decided to contact Camping World and they stepped up and agreed to refund our money. Decided to purchase a Hughes surge protector product instead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Melted camper plug to surge guard Melted first time using it. Camper plug melted to surge protector. Surge protector started sizzling to camper plug in. Plug camper directly to electric pole every thing ok without surge protector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Southwire surge protector Works as advertised. I haven’t gone to a campground that has lousy electrical service to test it, but can’t see why it won’t work. I have a 1999 Coachman 5th wheel and it is in good shape and want to keep the electrical components that way. I assume there is better technology in the newer model campers to prevent damage, so felt it was a good fit for my older camper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. Caught faulty 30 to 15. New to rv camping and was able to get this on sale for 69.99. Seems like a good investment that a lot of people do not take.. in fact on a walk around the rv site it was far more common to not see one being used. The light indicators also caught me using a faulty 30 to 15 amp converter at my home. It showed an open neutral and after troubleshooting my system was at risk from a 5 dollar part that was not working.. good entry level product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to unplug RV shore cord from this protector! The surge guard works fine BUT it takes two of us to unplug our 30 amp cord from this thing! It’s been used a few months a lot and yet it still becomes the thing to sour a moment when we unplug. Crazy! Our rv attached 30 amp plug works fine in all other devises so the surge guard receptacle is to blame for needed gorilla strength. Not sure what to say further, but if you have arthritis or are weak pass!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Surge Guard #2 This is the second one we purchased in a 12 month period, so here's to keeping our fingers crossed! We don't know if maybe it did the job and that is why it just quit working or if the item was not good. So we thought we would give it another try. For the price I am hoping that it quit working due to a surge protection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great surge protector with one flaw. Works great. It has little lights to tell you that everything is running as it should be before you even plug in your camper. My only complaint is that they choose very dim lights in a green color. They can be very hard to see during the day.

How many joules? It would help to list that in your "specs."
