Video Transcript for Camco RV Wiring CAM55310 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number CAM55310. This is a Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer. The voltage analyzer is going to help protect your RV from improperly wired electrical boxes and power surges. Here at the top, it's got three diagnostic lights that are going to indicate faults before you connect your 30-amp electrical cord. It's also going to feature integrated surge protection that's going to provide extra security. It's got a weather-resistant design so it's going to be a really good protector when it comes to protecting the electrical components. That's got these ridges that run along the housing right there that so you can get your fingers on there, get a nice, secure grip. It's going to make plugging in and disconnecting from the receptacle very quick and easy. These lights are going to light up in different patterns, so whatever indicators are lit you're going to match that up with the code reader down here.

This is your chart. It's going to show you what the lights mean and how they're reading. The first one means that everything is correct. It says, "Correct Wiring". The next one says, "Open Ground", then it says, "Reverse Polarity".

This is "Open Hot", "Open Neutral", "Hot and Ground Reverse", "Hot on Neutral with Hot Open". It's got all these indicators here that are going to show you exactly what you're getting ready to plug your power cord into. Again, you can plug this into the 30-amp circuit or receptacle and then you can actually leave it connected once you find out that it's all good and ready to go and wired correctly; then you can plug in your 30-amp electrical cord directly into this and use it as a surge protection. The overall dimensions of the unit, it's not very big at all. It fits in the palm of your hand. It's going to give us an overall length of about 4-1/4" and overall width of about 2-1/4" and then an overall depth of about 3.5" including the brass contacts here. It can easily be stored inside the compartment and always keep close at hand, that way it's always ready to be used. That's going to do it for our review of part number CAM55310.

This is a Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer. .

excellent product ,great price, quick s hip




by:

The package you sent was buried under a lot of other packages and had been opened or crushed or maybe both. But, both things I ordered were in good shape and the convererter has been installed.
This was probably my fault when I first ordered because I assumed you would be shipping UPS or Fed Ex and through theUSPS. I intercepted it at the post office before it was shipped back to you. We get no mail delivery at our house.




by:

This gives me peace of mind when I hook up to a campsite. And to be safe with a power surge.




by:

Have not had the opportunity to use this yet...so?




by:

Everything I ordered came in one box and was all in good condition. The delivery time was great. I have used etrailer.com now for many things needed for my truck and travel trailer. They never disappoint. This service is awesome. They answer questions with there help line and give lots of documentation to help with setting up and using your purchase. Many of the brick and mortar stores need to learn how to serve the customers as well as etrailer does.




by:

Looks good. Can’t wait to use it!




by:

All items arrived a day earlier than expected! The Camco Circuit Analyzer was less expensive than the dealer and replaced my original that did what it was designed for and saved my electrical system. The mirrors fit like OEM parts and the propane hoses are of better quality than OEM.




by:

Works perfectly




by:

This has worked out well for us. It was brought home to us how important this surge protector is at one of our camping trips last year. There was a power surge at the campground and quite a few people had things burn out. Not us!!




by:

These mirrors are well made, fit like a glove, look great, and installed in minutes. It took longer to view the videos than to install the mirrors on the truck! We're very pleased with this purchase and the quick delivery from etrailer.




by:

Works great! Etrailer has always been a good choice for us




by:

I ended up giving it to my sister as I bought another unit - power management, not just surge suppressor. Not sure how to evaluate. Unless there is a spike and others around me fried and I did not, not sure how I know it works. Mostly an insurance policy.




by:

Defender doing great. Service from etrailer has also been great over the years.




by:

Works great, saved all my electronics twice from lightning storms!




by:

Exactly what I needed. Fast shipping combined with excellent communication. The folks at etrailer have never disappointed me. This is our 4th RV and we always seem to need something.




by:

Surge protection and wiring check is cheap insurance against electrical damage.




by:

I've had this item for well over a year. The hardest test I put it through was nearly 10 degrees F. It performed flawlessly. I'm glad we bought it.




by:

Recently had an opportunity to use the Defender and fortunately it appeared to work as advertised and I had no issues.




by:

You guys helped me with my questions I had....
Ordered,
fit perfect... again, great job!




by:

Works as advertised the as best as I can ascertain. Prompt service from etrailer, as always.




by:

Works as advertised. Helps to ensure proper electrical hook up.




by:

Simple to use before connecting to an outlet and knowing that you have a good electrical supply




by:

Excellent. I don't plug in anywhere without this first.




by:

Easy to use web site with GREAT videos on the products I needed. Great prices, fast delivery. What else can you ask for?




by:

Just received product looking forward to seeing how effective it is on my next trip.

See what our Experts say about this Camco RV Surge Protectors

  • Can the Camco 30 Amp Voltage Analyzer Surge Protector work on my Generator
    Absolutely! I think it is a great idea to use this type of protection on any non inverter type of generator. These types are notorious for power surges and the Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer part # CAM55310 will go a long way in protecting your electronics. I've included our video for you to check out.

  • Does Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer # CAM55310 Have Internal Breaker
    The Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer # CAM55310 that you referenced has an internal breaker that will automatically reset. You wouldn't need to reset it manually.
    view full answer...
  • Humming Noise Coming from Camco RV Power Defender
    I checked with my contact over at Camco who confirmed that the humming sound coming from your Camco RV Power Defender # CAM55310 is nothing to worry about- this is completely normal with products like this and mean they're functioning correctly. They mentioned that it will sometimes be louder than others and will even change from a softer hum to a louder one, so that's something to be aware of going forward as well.

  • Troubleshooting Older Model of Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer After Power Outage
    Your older model of the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer # CAM55310 definitely appears to have been damaged by your recent power outage/surge. I did confirm with Camco that a yellow light just on the rand hand side is not an error code so this points to some kind of damage within the part itself. I do recommend replacing your unit with the current model. This does have integrated surge protection to provide extra security and a weather-resistant construction to protect the electrical...

  • Will The Camco Power Defender Voltage Analyzer Allow An Electrical Panel Door to Close?
    The Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer # CAM55310 will add about 2-1/2 inches of additional depth to your cord connection. Most of the panel doors will not close when you have a cord installed and this will obviously add more to that. It will in most cases still allow the panel door to shield the connections from rain.
    view full answer...
  • Is the Camco RV Power Defender More Than a Surge Protector?
    The Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer # CAM55310 will offer 1,050 joules of surge protection. It has a dual function of not only a surge protector but also a tool to determine if the power supply is correctly wired to protect your RV electronics before you even make the connection to your RV power or check for damage before reconnecting following a power surge. I've attached a video to assist.
    view full answer...
  • Will Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer Shut Off with Over 30 Amps
    The Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer # CAM55310 referenced in your question features a 30-amp rating but it will not shut off automatically if the amperage rises. If you are over 30 amps, the breaker on the panel you are plugged into should trip or shut off at that point. The surge protector will protect against things like lightning strikes or sudden voltage spikes. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that you can also check out.

  • Will the Camco RV Voltage Analyzer Part # CAM55310 Protect from RV Hot-Skin Condition
    RV hot-skin is a condition that causes the body of trailer to hold an electrical charge due to a fault in the ground on the shore line power outlet. The faulty ground at the shore line outlet will be detected by the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer part # CAM55310 making it a very safe investment.

  • Does the Camco RV Power Defender Reveal If Surge Occurred?
    The Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer # CAM55310 will offer 1,050 joules of surge protection. It will not give any indication if a surge has occurred but rather will trip the breaker in the panel upline from the unit. If that breaker is reset, power will still come through the Defender and you'll get the lighting codes for any issues that could have resulted from the surge.

  • Warranty on the Camco RV Power Defender
    There is a 1 year, limited manufacturer's warranty on the CamCo RV Power Defender, part # CAM55310.

  • Is the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer Weatherproof
    The Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer # CAM55310 referenced in your question does indeed feature a weather-resistant housing that will protect it from the elements. This voltage analyzer will plug into a 30-amp receptacle at an RV park to test for improper wiring. The diagnostic lights on the unit will indicate any faults before you actually connect your electrical cord, protecting your RV. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that you can also check out.

  • Why Would Trailer Marker Lights Come on When Trailer is Plugged into Shore Power
    You have a short somewhere. It's possible your RV has the "hot-skin condition". RV hot-skin is a condition that causes the body of trailer to hold an electrical charge due to a fault in the ground on the shore line power outlet. Since trailer lighting grounds through the frame of the trailer this will short out trailer wiring potentially and is most likely while your taillights are still on. The faulty ground at the shore line outlet will be detected by the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage...

  • Do I Need To Replace A surge Protector After It Is Tripped
    Your Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer # CAM55310 should be fine if you've only activated the surge protection once. Your unit is rated for 1,050 joules, and if you've had a 200 joule hit, in theory, you still have approximately 850 joules left, which is still really good. Typically, you'll want to replace your surge protector every 2-5 years, but if you've had a frequent amount of hits you'll want to consider replacing sooner.

  • Dimensions of Camco RV Power Defender part # CAM55310
    The Camco RV Power Defender part # CAM55310 is 2-1/4 inches wide, 2-1/2 inches deep, and 4-1/4 inches tall.

  • Availability of Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer for 30 Amp RV Service and 50 Amp Plug
    There isn't a version of the Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer # CAM55310 that would allow you to connect your RV's 50 Amp power plug directly into a 30-amp receptacle at an RV park. You'll need to use a power cord adapter like # CAM55185, as you mentioned.
    view full answer...
  • Comparing Camco RV Circuit Analyzer and Voltage Protector for 30 Amp Service
    In simplest terms, the Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer part # CAM55310 acts as a fuse and the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Protector part # CAM55301 acts as an auto-resetting circuit breaker. Therefore, if the fuse blows it will need to be replaced but if the circuit breaker trips it will go back to functioning as normal once the fault is corrected.

  • Difference in Circuit Protection Between Camco 55310 and 55312 Power Defenders
    The Power Defender, part # CAM55310, is referred to as a voltage analyzer where part # CAM55312 is called a circuit analyzer but essentially it's the same protection. The difference is that # CAM55310 protects up to 1,050 joules while # CAM55312 protects up to 2,100 joules.

  • Does Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer Dogbone CAM55313 Correct Miswired Outlets
    The Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer Dogbone # CAM55313 will tell you if the power outlet at an RV park is wired properly to prevent damage to the connected RV's electrics, but it does not correct for any mis-wired outlets. It is a warning device only. My contact at Camco confirmed that when three of the four LED indicator lights are lit yellow on the main body of the unit the outlet is wired correctly. They also offer a similar unit, their Power Defender Voltage Analyzer # CAM55310....

  • Joules of Surge Protection for the Camco Voltage Defender
    I spoke to my contact at Camco and he informed me that the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer # CAM55310 that you referenced offers 1,050 joules of surge protection but it's primary function is to determine if a power outlet/pedestal is wired correctly. For more voltage protection you may be more interested in the # CAM55301 that offers 2,450 joules of protection or the part # CAM55306 that provides 3,850 joules of protection. Review videos for all three products are attached.

  • Recommended RV Power Monitor/Defender for 50-Amp Service
    No, instead you will want to use the 50-amp version of the Camco Power Defender, which is their part # CAM55313. This provides the same circuit analyzer and voltage monitoring functions along with surge suppression but in the 50-amp capacity you need. A similar but better option is their RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor # CAM55306 which provides those functions but adds the ability to automatically disconnect when dangerous incoming voltage levels are detected. It will automatically...

  • 50-Amp Rated RV Power Protection Device to Guard Against Bad Wiring and Voltage Irregularities
    Yes, Camco offers two items similar to the 30-amp RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer # CAM55310 that are suitable for your RV's 50-amp electrical service. Part # CAM55313 is a 50-amp Power Defender Circuit Analyzer that provides both diagnostic and surge protection functions. Camco also offer the 50-amp RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor # CAM55306 which adds the additional capability of automatically disconnection when dangerous voltage levels are detected, anything below 102V or above...

  • Comparison of Camco Circuit Analyzers and Voltage Protectors
    Camco Power Defender voltage protectors, parts # CAM55301 and # CAM55306, have a bit more protection than the circuit analyzers, parts # CAM55310, # CAM55312, and # CAM55313. Both the analyzers and protectors have diagnostic lights for faults but beyond that the analyzers are just surge protectors. The voltage protectors go a little further by detecting the voltage and shutting off if the voltage level falls below 102V or goes over 132V. The voltage protectors also reset themselves...

  • Power Cord Options for 30 Amp Twist Lock Connector on Travel Trailer
    Yes, the Mighty Cord RV Power Cord - 30 Amps - 25' Long # A10-3025EDBK will work great for your application. It doesn't have the fancy fault lights that your current wiring does so you might consider using something like the Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer # CAM55310 as well which helps check for faults. You can use an extension like the Mighty Cord # A10-3025EH but I wouldn't go above this additional 25' of cord. If you anticipate needing more than that 25' of that initial connector...
