Video Transcript for Camco RV Wiring CAM55301 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number CAM55301. This is a Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor. The voltage monitor is going to protect your RV from excessive voltage and power surges. It's going to automatically disconnect when dangerous voltage levels are detected and then it will actually reconnect with the voltage levels stabilize, usually between 102 volts and 132 volts. The female end of the unit is going to connect to your RV'S 30 amp power plug. The male end of your unit is going to plug into a 30 amp receptacle. It's got the built-in handles on each end that's going to make unplugging the cord very, very simple.

It's going to feature a water-resistant design so it's going to protect all the electrical components. It's also going to feature a multi-level surge protection that's going to work together with the diagnostic lights. That's a great system to have in place because it's going to visually alert you of any faults that the system may have. It's got a reconnect delay. That's going to protect sensitive equipment like air-conditioner units. It's going to protect it by not rapidly recycling the power. It's a great system to have in place, it's really going to protect your overall connections. If we take a measurement of overall length measuring from end-to-end it's going to give us a measurement of about 24 inches in total length. That's going to do it for our review of part number CAM55301.

This is a Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor. .

The Camco RV Power Defender has been great for me. Twice it has saved the electrical system in my motorhome so it has more than paid for itself. Contractors get in a hurry and wire outlets sometimes with reverse polarity, unaware to campsite owners and campers. This can cause a short in your RV and a shock potential when you think appliances are turned off and they still have a live current running through them. I would highly recommend this product . E-Trailer sells these at an affordable price so there is no reason not to have one to protect your RV from costly repairs. 600227

Great price , no disappointments. This a quality unit. Rather large but after the first time using it got use to it. Works great as advertised. I used a quality bike cable lock to secure this to the RV park post ( for security reasons) this is a investment that I want to protect like my RV and electrical system ,etc. After doing much research about a surge protectors I realized that this would be valuable tool for protection from electronic /electrical problems saving me a ton of money and down time use of my RV. The unit constantly diagnosis the in coming power and has easy to understand led lights. I would highly recommend this product. etrailer prices were great, shipping is as always fast and packaged carefully as with all my purchases from them . 691090

Had another brand that I purchased from [camping retailer]. When it went dead after only 2 years (and only 8 camping trips) I called the manufacturer who said [camping retailer] had sold me a "sitting in the warehouse" old outdated product....which could not be fixed. Very happy with my new Camco power protector. Will always shop at etrailer first. 695777

Possibly too sensitive. I was at a site and it kept resetting, knocking out the Air conditioner in late June in Houston. Gives good peace of mind and I've used it at every other site since. It's a sizeable and heavy piece of equipment. 639512

by:

I have not had any damage to electronics or anything else since I started using this unit and there has been a few power outages and surges of power off then on again quickly which is usually when the voltage spikes would occur and possibly cause the damage. 639504

A power surge can happen anytime and you absolutely need to protect your substantial RV investment with the appropriate rated surge protector. I trust CAMCO products and etrailer is an excellent sourcing partner that I've relied on for years. 611407

Ask the Experts about this Camco Accessories and Parts

  • Can RV with 50 Amp Socket use 30 Amp Service at Campground
    Yes, you can use your RV that has a 50 amp outlet with a 30 amp power source by using the dog bone adapter like the part # A10-3050FHVP. You'd just have to make a note that you have a lower amount of amperage available for your accessories. The # CAM55301 that you referenced can be used and will help prevent you from drawing more than 30 amps.
    view full answer...
  • How to Connect Surge Protector When Using 30 Amp to 50 Amp RV Adapter Power Cord
    You have it exactly right. Starting at the RV you will plug in your 30A power cord like # 277-000147 which will connect to the 30A surge protector, such as the Camco # CAM55312 or the multilevel # CAM55301. Then from the surge protector you will use your adapter like # A10-5030FHVP to plug into the 50 amp shore power outlet.

  • Recommended RV Surge Protector Voltage Regulator for 30 Amp Power System
    For any trailer or motorhome system, I recommend using a surge protector to protect your trailer electronics and components from issue. For your 30 amp system I recommend at least the Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer Dogbone - 125V - 30 Amp # CAM55312 which will protect from a single surge has indicator lights of faults. This will require replacing after a surge and will not allow you to safely reconnect your system after a fault so you would be taking a risk if you reconnect....

  • Will the Camco RV Power Defender Part # CAM55301 Work with an Inverter Generator
    As long as your inverter generator has a 30 amp RV receptacle like what is shown in the attach photo then yes the Camco RV Power Defender part # CAM55301 will work for you. You may also want to consider the lock part # CAM44290.

  • Can RV with 50 Amp Power Hook Up to 30 Amp Power Source
    You can indeed connect your RV with 50 amp power to a 30 amp power source. To do this you can use an adapter like the Mighty Cord Generator Adapter # A10-G30450VP which is just a 50 amp female socket on one end and a 30 amp female connector on the other. As you mentioned, plugging into a 30 amp service is going to limit how many appliances you can have running at one time in the RV. As long as you are okay with this then you can physically hook up to the power source without issue. Technically...

  • Surge Protectors for 30 Amp and 50 Amp Power Sources for RV
    I wish there was a circuit protector that could cover both amperage ratings but you'd have to have a 30 amp protector like the part # CAM55301 or the # CAM55306 for a 50 amp setup. For a 30 amp female to 50 amp male adapter you'd want # A10-5030FHVP.

  • How To Use a Surge Protector When Hooking Up a 30 Amp Camper To a 50 Amp Service
    It sounds like you are wanting to use a surge protector when hooking up your 30 amp trailer to a 50 amp service. If that is the case then this can be done but you would want to use a 30 amp surge protector. I recommend using the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Protector part # CAM55301 with the Power Grip RV Power Cord Adapter part # CAM55175. The camper pulls power from the shore outlet, not the other way around. The camper would never pull more than 30 amps unless there was an issue...

  • Can 30 Amp Surge Protector be Used on 50 Amp RV
    A 30 amp surge protector can be used on a 50 amp RV but if you exceed 30 amps the surge protector is going to activate and prevent more than 30 amps from making it to the rest of the electrical system. So it would "work" but not be ideal Best solution would be a 50 amp surge protector like the part # CAM55301.

  • Difference Between Camco RV Power Defender and Circuit Analyzers
    The 30 Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Protector # CAM55301 is like a circuit breaker and automatically resets if there's a surge whereas the 50 amp Circuit Analyzer part # CAM55313 is like a fuse and it only can handle one surge. For a 50 amp breaker style you'd need the part # CAM55306.

  • Recommended Surge Protector for a 2019 Winnebago Minnie Winnie Plus
    Yes, the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Protector part # CAM55301 is compatible with a 2019 Winnebago Minnie Winnie Plus. I spoke with Camco and they stated the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Protector is not UL Certified but is CSA Certified.
    view full answer...
  • Do 30-Amp and 50-Amp Surge Protectors Use Different Connectors
    50-amp service and 30-amp service use different connectors. The 50-amp surge protector # CAM55313 uses 4-prong connectors while the 30-amp surge protector # CAM55301 uses 3-prong connectors. So you will need to have one for each type of campground power outlets.

  • Are Multiple Surge Protectors Necessary
    Multiple surge protectors such as the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Protector # CAM55301 are not needed. Though we do not carry the Progressive protectors, if you are using a voltage protector like the # CAM55301 for 30 amp or # CAM55306 for 50 amp then there is no reason to add another protector.

  • Recommended Surge Protector for 30 Amp Trailer
    For your 30 Amp trailer you will want the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor - 30 Amp # CAM55301. This will monitor voltage and automatically disconnect when dangerous levels are detected and then reconnect when voltage stabilizes. This is a great option to allow protection from multiple surges. You may want to consider the Camco Power Grip Cable with Lock # CAM44290 to secure your investment. If you were to use a 50 amp unit, then there could be spikes that could damage your...

  • Does Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor # CAM55301 Automatically Reset
    The Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor # CAM55301 is designed to automatically reset once the power gets back to a safe level and does not need to be unplugged for this to happen.

  • Can 50 Amp Surge Protector Be Used with 30 Amp Power Supply
    You can use a 50 amp surge protector on your 30 amp service but I would offer a bit of caution. If any of your appliances or items are rated at 30 amps and something happened that caused them to draw more power, the 50 amp surge protector would not trigger and you could suffer damage to those items. If you decide to use the 50 amp surge protector I recommend making sure everything is in good working order, but as I stated, if there were a problem it may cause damage because the circuit...

  • Intended Function of Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor CAM55301
    The intended purpose of the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor # CAM55301 is to protect your entire 30-amp RV electrical system from over- or under-voltage conditions in the power source it is connected to. it automatically disconnects when dangerous voltage levels are detected and automatically reconnects when voltage levels stabilize to a safe level (between 102V and 132V). This is different than a GFI outlet as one might find in an RV or household bathroom.

  • When Going from 30 Amp Power Source to 50 Amp RV What Power Amperage Circuit Protection is Needed
    You want circuit protection to protect your RV's wiring which is rated for 50 amp....so you'd want to go with 50 amp circuit protection. For that we have the part # CAM55306 which automatically resets or the part # CAM55313 which is more like a fuse and is internally damaged and needs to be replaced in the event of a surge. To adapt this to a 30 amp power source you'd want the part # A10-3050FHVP and you'd be set.

  • Does 50 Amp RV Need to Have 30 Amp Surge Protection Using 30 Amp Power
    If you power your 50 amp service RV with 30 amp power you'll be fine as long as you are aware that your amperage is not lower than normal which means you won't be able to run as many electricity power accessories at any given time. The surge protector is for protecting the wiring of your RV though so there's no reason you'd have to go down to a 30 amp protector. Your RV can handle up to 50 amps so there's nothing that's going to harm it between 30 and 50.

  • Can Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor # CAM55301 Be Used with Extension Cord
    The Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor # CAM55301 can be used with an extension cord such as Camco's # CAM55191 Power Grip RV Extension Cord which is rated for 30-amps like the Power Defender. I confirmed this with Camco's technical group. Review videos for both referenced products are linked for you. However, Camco does not officially recommend using the Power Defender inside the trailer for safety reasons.

  • Which Side of 50 amp to 30 amp Adapter Does Camco RV Power Defender # CAM55301 Install
    You'd have to plug the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor - 30 Amp # CAM55301 between the 30 amp connector and the 30 amp receptical. If you put it on the 50 amp side (it wouldn't fit) you'd be limiting the 50 amp setup to 30 amps which would cause issues. So between the 30 amp RV and the 30 amp connector.

  • Can a 30 Amp Surge Protector Be Used On a 50 Amp Service
    I do have both 30 amp part # CAM55301 and 50 amp part # CAM55306 surge protectors for you but it is not recommended to use a 30 amp surge protector on a 50 amp service. The reason for this is because you will have to use an additional adapter in order to attach the power cord to the surge protector and this additional connection creates another failure point in the system therefore, not recommended by the manufacturer. The trailer and or surge protector may work without issue but if anything...
    view full answer...
  • Will Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor Work with a 30 Amp to 15 Amp Adapter
    It depends on where you are using the adapter. The Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor # CAM55301 has to plug into a 30 amp service outlet so it can properly monitor the input voltage. The use of an adapter between the 30 amp panel and the monitor could provide inaccurate readings. If the input coming in is accurately monitored and then you adapted it on the outgoing side to the RV then that would be fine.

  • Is it Normal for 30 amp Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Protector to Not Work With 50 amp Service
    The Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Protector # CAM55301 that you referenced automatically disconnects when it senses that the voltage levels are at a dangerous point. Since it automatically reconnects when the voltage levels stabilize (between 102V - 132V) I am wondering if the service that you are hooking up to is too much for the adapter. This would explain why it isn't working. I would try testing the 50 amp service to make sure that it is outputting power and if it is you can then...
    view full answer...
  • Could Power Defender part # CAM55301 Be Used with 30 to 50 Amp Adapter
    If the power draw was less than 30 amps with the accessories then the Camco Power Defender part # CAM55301 can be used with a 30 amp to 50 amp adapter. Having access to a 50 amp power source though does not mean that much amperage will be pulled through the adapter.
    view full answer...
  • What Does the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor # CAM55301 Plug Into
    The female end of the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor # CAM55301 that you referenced plugs into the RV's 30 amp power plug and the male side plugs into a 30 amp receptacle. I attached a review video for more info for you to check out as well.

  • Surge Protection Recommendation for When Operating RV on 30 Amp Power Source
    What you'd want is a 30 amp surge protector like part # CAM55301 when you are using your setup on a 30 amp power source. You'd just need to plug this in line with your 30 amp wiring.

  • Is the Camco Power Defender Water Resistant
    The Camco # CAM55301 is a water-resistant unit so that it provides protection for the electrical components it contains, so as long as it is not submerged in water it will be just fine.

  • Comparison of Camco Circuit Analyzers and Voltage Protectors
    Camco Power Defender voltage protectors, parts # CAM55301 and # CAM55306, have a bit more protection than the circuit analyzers, parts # CAM55310, # CAM55312, and # CAM55313. Both the analyzers and protectors have diagnostic lights for faults but beyond that the analyzers are just surge protectors. The voltage protectors go a little further by detecting the voltage and shutting off if the voltage level falls below 102V or goes over 132V. The voltage protectors also reset themselves...

  • Recommended Power Adapter and Surge Protector for 50 Amp Campsite to 30 Amp RV Connection
    You have it correct. From the RV connection, you will use the 30 amp female to 30 amp male power cord like # 277-000147. Then you will have your 30 amp surge protector like # CAM55312 for single surge or # CAM55301 for multiple surge with automatic reset which is what I recommend. Then you can use an adapter like the Mighty Cord Dogbone RV Power Cord Adapter - 30 Amp Female to 50 Amp Male - 12" # A10-5030FBK to connect to the campsite power service.
