We’re fairly sure that some of the techies reading this are RV owners. Do you have a surge protector that you use with your RV?

Many RV surge protectors and Electrical Management Systems (EMS) have various modes that prevent damage to electronics, and computer during an electrical surge. These modes prevent water penetration and ensure that the electronic devices are still safe during a power surge. Surge protectors also keep your appliances working properly during a power outage or power surge.

A surge protector is often used on your RV when an electrical source is either turned off or disabled during an electrical storm or power outage. Most Surge protectors and electrical management systems will protect your computer, tablet, and smartphone from surges up to 8.4 volts.

If you have no surge protectors installed, you should keep in mind the following tips to keep your computer, tablet, and smartphone safe.
