          I’ve seen others mention using surge protectors. Do you guys recommend using one? How about this one?

              It’s a must-have! And Watchdogs are great. I have the Progressive Industries EMS, but the Bluetooth feature on that Watchdog is a nice feature.

                  I didn’t fully investigate the one you pictured, but I’d step up to the version with EPO or go with the one @tory-jon mentioned. The one you pictured looks to only protect against surges, while the EPO adds low power protection, which is just as bad as a surge.

                          Agreed, go with a surge protector with EPO or EMS. They might cost more, but its extra insurance.

                              I’ve been saved from low power at campgrounds at least twice that i can remember. The damage that would have caused would far outweigh the cost of getting a surge protector with epo
