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

received the 30amp. surge protecter 2 days after I ordered it , very fast service. I went to the Chicago RV show and bought a new Rockwood Mini-lite , which I have not picked up yet from the dealer, because I have not got a call to say that it is in. I plan on using the surge protecter on this new Rockwood , and I am sure it will do the job it is intended to do . Thank you! You have great customer service! 499089

Easy to use, still works great and gives you peace of mind I would purchase it again 652628

by:

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

etrailer has become my new "GoTo" company for my RV needs. My Camco 30 Amp surge protector was here in two days. and we use it this weekend. It worked as advertised, but that is what you would expect from Camco. The etrailer price was lower than any place else, including other sites. 447388


Comments

Still very pleased with the Camco surge protector. We use it at every site that we stay. We camp at a lot of COE parks, some of which have been around for awhile. Given the age of some of the COE infrastructure, at least we know our electronics and appliances arent going to be fried.

this was backordered and etrailer did me the favor of expediting delivery just as soon as they received the item because I needed it before departing on a trip with my trailer. THANKS!!! Great customer service! 422447

Bigger than I thought it would be...which I judge to be a plus, especially when dealing with electrical power types of things. Looks rugged. I plugged it into my backyard power supply (I keep my camper in my backyard) and everything lit up like it was supposed to. Of course the real test is "under fire" when it is needed in a bad power situation at a campground...which I hope never happens. Fast delivery. Packaging was a bit overkill, but .... 401509

Just got back from my first camping trip. used the surge protector, worked great. Had to figure out how it worked in the beginning to turn it on I had a problem with my camper's outlet kicking off to many things plug in at the same time. Once I iron out the bugs, I had no more problems I would recommend this product Thank you 262632

Comments

Yes - the device is working well - just finished a 4 week trip visiting 4 different campgrounds. The only issue is waiting after you plug it in for it to do its necessary checks before giving the green light. I feel good with the protection

It was a great, easy transaction purchasing from etrailer! The item came in a timely fashion, as told... and the item works like it’s supposed to. Very happy with my purchase, and I’m confident if I had any questions or concerns, a quick call or email will take care of my concern(s). The video review of this dogbone surge protector was very, very helpful in my search for what I needed for my camper. I will buy again, I’m positive! 506114

Just bought a new RV that uses 50 amp power. Too early to tell operational issues, but the build quality is rugid. Before this we bought a 30 amp surge protector from Etrailer by Camco and used it for 3 years with no problems. Even went through a few thunderstorms and power outages with no damage. We feel confident that this 50 amp surge protector will perform similarly. 596147

Review from a similar Camco Power Defender in Accessories and Parts


Hooked the 30amp dogbone with surge protector up right away, to the outlet I installed outside my house for my new camper. Anytime I hook up my new camper to a 30amp outlet it's going to be good insurance to know that the circuit is wired correctly! Great product... Best Price at etrailer! Excellent service.... thanks etrailer and Karen! I compare prices when it comes to trailer, or RV equipment. Consistently, etrailer has the best prices on the same exact items . Also, most of the time the purchased item arrives much faster then I was told it would take to get to me. (Most of the time I don't pay for delivery.) Thank you! I've been a happy customer for over three years. 463414

  • 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 Adapter and Surge Protector for 50 Amp System to 30 Amp Shore Power
  • With your 50 amp camper system, I recommend using the Power Grip RV Power Maximizer - 50 Amp Female to 15 Amp Male and 30 Amp Male # CAM55025 to allow you to plug into 30 amp power supplies. Then you will use a surge protector like # CAM55306 for multiple surge protection or # CAM55313 for single time surge protection. Many people use the Camco Power Grip Cable with Lock # CAM44290 to protect their investment. Unless you convert your entire system to 30 amp, I don't recommend using...

  • Does Surge Protection in Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer Dogbone CAM55312 Re-Set
  • The surge protection in the Camco RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer Dogbone # CAM55312 provides one-time-event protection. I confirmed this with my technical contact at Camco. For a re-setting surge protector you will instead want to use their # CAM55301. This unit will re-connect automatically when a voltage surge downs back down to a nominal 102-to-132-volt level.

  • Hooking Up Surge Protector for 30 Amp Camper to Plug Into 50 Amp Power Source
  • If your camper is wired for 30 amps I highly recommend using a 30 amp surge protector. The potential issue with using a higher-rated 50 amp surge protector is that it wouldn't be triggered soon enough to protect any appliances you have that are rated for 30 amps. To hook up your 30 amp camper to a 50 amp power source you will want to first connect a 30 amp voltage protector (like the Camco # CAM55301 for a reseting protector or # CAM55312 for a one-time-use protector) to the camper. Then...

  • Blue Light On Camco RV Power Defender CAM55312 No Longer Illuminating
  • I spoke with my contact at Camco regarding your RV Power Defender Circuit Analyzer # CAM55312. He said that if the blue surge protector light is no longer illuminating on your unit then it has experienced a surge episode (and protected your RV!). This may have happened with your 30 amp home outlet or it could have happened the previous time you used the analyzer at a campsite. Since this particular model provides one-time-event protection, it is no longer able to provide surge protection...

  • 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....

  • 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 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.

  • 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 the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Protector be Used When Converting 50 Amps to 30 Amps
  • I do have options for you but a voltage protector like the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Protector part # CAM55301 cannot be used when converting from 50 amps to 30 amps. Instead, you would just need to use a standard extension power cord with dogbone adapter. For this I recommend the Mighty Cord RV Power Cord Adapter part # A10-3050EHD which is 25' long. If you already have a 50 amp power cord that goes from the inlet on the RV to the outlet at the RV park you can just use the Mighty...

  • Joules of Surge Protection for the Camco Voltage Defender
  • I spoke to my contact at Camco and he informed me that the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Analyzer # CAM55310 that you referenced offers 1,050 joules of surge protection but it's primary function is to determine if a power outlet/pedestal is wired correctly. For more voltage protection you may be more interested in the # CAM55301 that offers 2,450 joules of protection or the part # CAM55306 that provides 3,850 joules of protection. Review videos for all three products are attached.

  • Can the Camco RV Power Defender 50 Amp Voltage Monitor be Used on Motorhome with 30 Amp Service
  • A 50 amp surge protector like the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage Monitor - 50 Amp, # CAM55306, can be used but it will not not provide the level of protection that you need for your motorhome with 30 amp service. A voltage monitor protects your motorhome from excessive voltage and power surges and automatically disconnects when dangerous levels are detected. Excessive voltage for a 30 amp service is much different that of a 50 amp service which means it would not disconnect at the...

  • 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.

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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
    view full answer...

  • 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...

  • 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 50 Amp Surge Protector Be Used On 30 Amp Service In RV
  • 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...

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...

  • 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.

  • Recommended RV Power Cord For Converting 50 Amp to 30 Amp for RV Power
  • An 8 gauge cable would help the handles from getting so hot, but unfortunately we don't carry anything like that. The 10 gauge wire is sufficient to work properly without overheating. The Mighty Cord RV Power Cord Adapter - 50 Amp Twist Lock Female to 30 Amp Male - 25' # A10-3050EHD is most likely your best option for conversion. You may want to consider using a surge protector like # CAM55313 to protect your wiring when using a straight 50 amp male or the Camco RV Power Defender Voltage...

  • 30 Amp Trailer Compatibility with 50 Amp Extension Cord
  • You can still use your 50 amp extension cord to the outlet and just use an adapter like the Mighty Cord RV Power Cord Adapter Plug - 30 Amp Female to 50 Amp Male - Round # A10-5030AVP. You will still need a 30 amp cable like the Epicord RV Power Cord with Handle - 30 Amp Male to Twist Lock Female Connector - 25' Long # 277-000145 or if you have the retractable hardwired cable then you just use the adapter to utilize your extension cord. You may want to consider the a circuit defender...

  • Which 30 Amp Camco Surge Protector will Reset Itself After Triggering
  • The Camco RV Power Defender, part # CAM55312 can only withstand a single surge. It cannot reset its surge protector once its used, and will need to be replaced. There is a version that will reset itself though and for that part number you'd want # CAM55301.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Differences Between Camco Circuit Analyzers and Power Defenders
  • You are correct. 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.

  • 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...
