We camp in full hook up sites in private and state parks, never had a problem. Finally is there a way to test a pedestal before hooking up?
Thanks for any responses.
I have never heard of a factory installed surge protector (option) unless it was purchased from CW and they installed one
As John stated only protection in standard rigs is the Circuit Breakers/Fuses which basically are sized to protect wiring in the trailer.
Before you purchase any type of additional protection I would do I search on the site such as surge, EMS. There is also some good comparisons of the portable versus hard wired units.
I highly recommend considering one, that is ,if you do not have one already
