How Can I Power My Camper From a Generator With the Hard Wired Watchdog Surge Protector?


I installed your watchdog 50amp hardwired surge protector, question is, do I need to install a bypass switch to the surge protector? I have a generator I will be cranking up at times. Could you send me a link to the 50amp bypass switches? Thanks

As I am not sure of your specific camper there are a couple options to check out.

First the Hughes Autoformers Ground Neutral Bonded Plug for Generators # HU33FR is designed to allow you to plug into your generator without causing the Power Watchdog Surge Protector # HU27FR to fault. The plug inserts into an unused outlet on your generator to create a neutral to ground bond.

If your generator is an onboard unit that is hardwired to the camper you will want to install the surge protector on the shore power wires before they go into the Automatic Transfer Switch # 34270278.

If neither option is possible for your specific camper please let me know what you have and I will help to find a resolution.
