    Surge protection

    Just wondering what owners are using for surge protection? I'm thinking of buying the Progressive Ind. 50 amp model. I've read good things about them. I couldn't find anywhere in the Heartland material what the factory supplies or recommends. thanks

    Hi Jimpav,
    Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum and Family. I'm sure you will find lots of good information here and meet lots of great people, especially when you attend some of the rallies.

    I have the Progressive Ind, 50 amp model and very pleased with it. I'm sure the factory does not supply or recommend a certain protector.

    Enjoy the forum.

    PT50C Progressive industries

    I also have the PT50 C by progressive industries. It give full coverage, voltage protection, amp readout, loss of ground, surge protection, polarity protection. It is nice to just plug in and after it checks everything send power to the coach after a 136 second delay. It then continuously monitors your electrical conection. This is an EMS, electrical management system rather than just a surge protector. Highly recommend it.

    Get a surge protector. We had one installed last year on our LM and it saved our coach this past winter. We were experiencing low voltage and if it were not for the protector shutting the current down we probably would have lost or damaged appliances, computers and who knows what else.

    We do not recommend any one brand of surge protector. Please consult with your local dealer for aftermarket solutions.

    We have the Progressive Industries 50 amp portable model. We had it go out once due to a surge and the company replaced it without questions. I personally highly recommend their products and the company.

    I guess I can chime in with my 2.
    We purchased the Surge Guard 50A portable. It has saved us twice.

    And the moral of that story is you MUST have a surge protector of some kind.
