Surge Protectors

I have been doing some research on surge protectors and basically everyone says you should have one. We are looking at a 50A model & if we buy a hardwired model we will have to pay someone to install it. 
Is the only downside of a portable one the fact that it can be stolen?
What do you use?

we have a Progressive Industries portable 30 amp power manager. It is fantastic and has almost certainly saved our electrical system a few times. This is the one we have:

EMS-PT0C

We connect the metal collar on the cord with a padlock to our coaches power cable to prevent theft. I HIGHLY recomment their products.

We use a Progressive Industries SSP-30 and couldn't be happier with it. I (Bryan) wouldn't take our rig out without one. I would actually like to upgrade to the EMS series at some point to further protect ourselves.  As far as theft issues, we really haven't had any.  I really highly recommend Progressive Industries.

I'm not sure what model we have, but we have a 30A portable one that we've used for years (bought it with our Oliver, and kept it for our bus - as we rarely need over 30A).   Haven't had a theft problem... yet. 

 

We will probably be building a 50A one into our electrical system at some point.  It's on that list of 200+ to-do items :)
