Does 50 Amp Surge Protector Offer More Protection than 30 Amp Surge Protector?


2016 Jayco 32BDSW 30 amp electrical service. I am wondering if I can use a 50 amp surge protector on my 30 amp camper to provide more protection?


Expert Reply:

The Hughes Autoformers are certainly the deluxe of all the power protection products. On top of all the low-voltage, high-voltage, Mis-wiring protections they offer - the hardwired units offer protection from thieves! This unit goes inside your coach instead of hanging from the outdoor post.

However, buying a 50-amp unit offers no more protection than a 30-amp unit IF your coach or trailer only connects to 30-amps. If your camper only plugs into 30 amp then you should purchase the Hughes # HU77FR. If your camper plugs into 50-amp service then the Hughes # HU27FR is for you
