Hey all,
Just curious to see who has tried the Hughes 30 amp bluetooth surge protector? I am looking for one with a slight limited budget but still would like some protection.
Thanks,
Curly

it's cheap and you get what you pay for. get a full function surge protector, not a $100 special.

If you like the Hughe's product why not spend a little more and get one that actually protects something?
Hughes WatchDog
Or look at a Progressive Ind. EMS

We have a 30A hard wired Hughes Watchdog with bluetooth. Works great, is an EMS type. On recent 4 week trip, it did it's job on low voltages, disconnecting and sending warning. Reconnect without any yelling and screaming!! Feel very satisified with purchase!!

Hughes has a warranty, not lifetime, but you can purchase a module if it blows for very little $$$'s and simply replace yourself. Don't have to send into them for "repair" or warranty.

I have a Southwire/TRC Surge Guard

Now far as I know both Southwire/TRC and progressive Industires make a number of products
The PI HW-30 C is top of the list and teh Southwire hardwired close to it and on sale this month at Camping world (WHY I have that product instead of the PI)

These units not only protect against Spikes (Tranisiebt high volteages some of which can be downright impressive) but guard against the accidental "OH C!!! I pluggeg into 240 volts. or other high and LOW voltage issues.

THey monitor voltage. current and alert about bad wireing (Reversed or missing wires)

Very nice.

One feature I like on my TRC by default and the PI by option is the delay turn on. Over 2 minutes if power "BLINKS" (goes off and right back on) tears up refrigerant compressors something fierce. but mine sits there for over 2 minutes to give the compressor time to relax a bit.


Home is where I park it.
