The podcast has been addressing RV electricity and the challenges that it can create for RV users, and the subject appears to be a popular one among listeners. Today we’re going to look at a company that specializes in surge protection for motorhomes and towables.
This week’s guest is Bobby Raatz, director of sales for mobile power and electrical safety equipment with Southwire, the company that produces the Surge Guard equipment.
Located in Carrollton, Ga., Surge Guard is a product with considerable name recognition among RV owners and many dealers carry the product.
Bobby describes Surge Guard and the types of products it offers to RV owners. He also explains how the systems are designed to work to prevent damaging electrical surges from harming RVs and the sensitive electronic equipment installed in them.
The devices feature very easy-to-read screens that show what problems might be occurring on the electrical line coming from the power pole. If there is a problem, the Surge Guard system will not allow electricity to pass into the RV.
We also look at common electrical problems at campgrounds and how the Surge Guard equipment can prevent spikes, surges and under-voltage from ruining a camping experience.
He even offers advice as to what RV dealers can do to help spread the word about surge protection equipment.
