I'm picking up a new AF 1150 in a couple of days. Do new campers come with a power cord and can you suggest a surge protector?

Thanks,
Rick

I doubt you'll get a free power cord. Now that you have the rig, you'll have the joy of buying accessories for it.


There is something special about camping in an RV.

Consider an autoformer with surge protection.

You should get a 30 amp cord from the manufacturer or dealer about 25' long either wired direct with the male end pulling out of a storage area or a separate cord that you would store.

DarkSkySeeker, you're in the neighborhood. We're in Forestville.
