Three years ago my son lost his converter due to a lightning storm. I wasn't using a surge suppresor then, but I bought two (one for me and one for my son) so I might be better protected. I figured with all my camping I had been pretty lucky not to have had any problems. What I had been doing was checking out the electrical post for any problems, but that is not going to protect you from an electrical surge or spike. Even now I think the next step should be a voltage regulator. I have been using a voltmeter for questionable electrical sources. That certainly helped me in Baja California where I ended up not trusting any of the rv parks electrical. Now if someone would only put out a combination box that had everything needed for electrical protection.
