I've had the portable Progressive 50 amp (the one that's about a foot long) for 8 1/2 years now & it has saved us more than once, the first time it fried the surge protector & fortunately I'd bought the warranty at Camping World & they replaced it for free. Personally I like the portable as we are on our 3rd rv using the same one, I've seen others with built in that was a lot of work if it had a problem, but it's a personal choice, but definitely need one.

bought the newest revised model 50 amp from e bay works great just plugs in line at the pole plug

Technology Research 34850 50 Amp Portable Surge Guard portable

the hardwire units has a remote digital voltage monitor display option

progressive dynamics makes some good units to, made in michigan , good warranty

the hard wire unit with monitor is the best if you want a more secure install with voltage monitor inside takes some work to install.

your choice

We have the Hardwired Progressive with Remote Display. One advantage of Progressive, they have a Life Time Warranty.

Same as Danny ~ the portable 50a progressive and it's saved the coach at least twice that I know of. As the saying goes "won't leave home without it". And yes, it's plugged into the 50a outlet at home when the coach is in the driveway.

50 amp portable Progressive. Like the life time warranty. Reasonably priced.
