Just ordered a hardwired 50 amp Surge Guard from CW for $224.99 I'm sure I can take it to Grumbines RV when I do my walk through and have them install it for me. Maybe I jumped the gun but the price was a savings of $155.00 off. anyone ever installed their own surge guard?

I had one wired in on my Montana, not that difficult to do. I will say anything is better than leaving it unprotected when hooked up. They pay for themselves the first time they trip. That group at Grumbines is pretty good, and shouldn't have any problems. Haven't looked at where the connection can be made on the Redwood, but should be pretty much the same and not too bad a job.

When we got our 2012 Redwood RV ( previously owned ) I boughta surge protector that plugs into the 50A power on site for about $150.The RV connection plugs into it. It identifies polarity, grounding, proper wiring to cord. I put a padlock on the disconnect to capture the unwanted removal by aqnyone. While I did that, I also placeda surge protected plug strip in the locked compartment and ranour cable lead thru it. Voltage spikes can come thru cable and telephone lines as well to damage equiptment.
