Need your Surge Protection help (for my Trailer).
My family has a Travel Trailer that uses 30 Amp 110/120V Service. Its connected to the camp ground's electrical grid that some call "dirty". re: Some ups, some downs but is known to spike. Already burned out 1 40A convertor in our previous smaller trailer. As a lesson learned, the Camp Ground owner suggested we use Surge Protection in our new Trailer. But, he doesn't recommend a specific product.
Was told that for "most efficient" Surge Protection, a 3 Tier Surge Protection configuration must be used. This 3-Tier is also known as "cascade Surge protection". re: Surge Protection at the Service Post / Line (which could be RV Surge Guard or better Progressive Industry Surge product), trailer's Main Panel 110/120V Surge Protection and sensitive wall outlet Surge Protection. Thus, 3 different layers - for best protection.
For trailer wall oulets, I bought a few Surge Protection "plug ins" from Best Buy and installed behind our LCD TV, DVD Player, Coffee Pot and trailer's 3-way fridge. The product I used is: http://shopper.cnet.com/power-equipm...-32401294.html
For my Trailer's Main Panel (which is 110/120V - max 30 Amps), I was thinking of using the Intermatic product or the Sycom Product. Their details are:
Intermatic AG2401C-IND (110/120V device) http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/fi...a%20sheet.ashx
Sycom SYC-120HW (110/120V device) http://www.logicsolution.com/SYC-120HW.pdf
For my Trailer's Main Panel, is the Sycom or Intermatic product better?
Sorry... I don't know clamping details or joules from a "dent in the ground" (sort of speaking). Thanks for your 110/120V main panel product recommendation....
