Electrical Pedestal Units – Plug the RV Power Cord into these units

RV Electrical Accessories for an RV can be the most useful thing that you can have aboard when traveling to different locations and having to rely on RV Park pedestal power.  These sources of 120-volt electrical power can be some of the most unreliable sources there are!  You have to take steps to protect your RV from a costly issue arising from you plugging into an improperly wired source, electrical surge, or just poor quality power.

Imagine plugging your RV power cord into the RV parks electrical pedestal and seeing sparks coming from the plug!  Does this happen? Yes, it does, and more frequently than you think.  Not only can the RV power cord be damaged but the electrical equipment inside your RV can also be destroyed by issues like this.

So, what can you do?

There are ways to protect your RV from disaster!  Here are some prevention suggestions, depending of course on the electrical service requirements of your RV.  These units should be placed between your RV’s 120-volt power cord and the RV park’s electrical pedestal.

Hard-Wired Units – Some Assembly and Electrical Knowledge Required

These units are usually mounted inside a storage compartment where the RV’s 120-volt power cord is located.  This device will be placed between the RV power cord and the first device it usually attached to.  For example, in a Class A RV, if the power cord normally goes directly into a transfer switch, the new hard-wired EMS would now be placed between the incoming power cord and the transfer switch.
