Video Transcript for Review of Hughes Autoformers RV Surge Protectors - 50 Amp Portable RV Surge Protector - HU47FR

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a quick look at this power watchdog portable 50 amp surge protector with Bluetooth. This is going to protect your RV from power spikes when you're hooked up to the shore power at your campsite. This will offer 4,800 joules of surge protection. It is very portable so it's gonna be very easy to just throw in your storage compartment and then pull out, get connected when you get to your campsite. Very easy to plug and play system here.

We do have LED lights on the top those are going to indicate that the receiver is or that our unit is receiving power. So you can see those three lights there are going to light up and we've got a whole chart of error codes, what the different light codes mean. So if we we're to have any problems, it would show up there, we could easily see what's going on. But we can also use the Bluetooth functionality and get it connected to an app on our phone. So when you pull up the app, it's gonna look like that.

So this is going to allow you to monitor your kilowatt hour usage. It's also going to show the watts, volts and amps there. This will also send you notifications if the voltage is outside the acceptable range. So if you you're campsite is having issues or the whole park who's having some problems, you'll get notified there so that you can go out and address those, whether that's unplugging or making sure everything is working properly. You can set a custom alert threshold, so you determine what amperage or voltage is appropriate and anything that's beyond that, either high or low, will send you a notification.

It's very easy to get this app setup. You just have to download it. It is compatible with any iOS or Android device. So you download it and then you can see there is a QR code here on the surge protector itself. You'll scan that QR code and it will then get your phone and surge protector connected so that you can monitor it via that phone app.

When I plug it in here, it'll show you how that lights up. So you can see, you have those three green lights so, that's going to show that our power is on. We're not having any problems whatsoever. So it's all functioning properly. Our handle on the backside, let me zoom out a little bit again so you can see. It's very easy, it's got these finger holds here. So it's gonna be very easy to disconnect from our power. And this is obviously compatible with your dog bone style cable adapters. So if you are needing that we have some available here in etrailer.com, but that it will work for you as well. As far as our dimensions go, our box itself is going to be right about 3 3/4 of an inch wide, just shy of four inches in total width. Our thickness is right about 2 7/8. I'm gonna call it 2 1/2 inches actually for our thickness here. And then our height, I'm gonna measure from the plastic caps here so there'll be a little bit more than what's currently on our webpage. But that is right about 9 1/4 of an inch from the edge of the connector to the edge of the connector about 9 1/4 inch. Our cables, our overall length for our input line here from the outside edge down to the connector. It's right about nine inches without the connector for the plug portion. It's right about, we'll call it 4 inches of cable there. On our other end, our output end, overall measurement, looking at right at 7 3/4 of an inch. And then our rubber cord part there, it's right about three inches. Maybe call it three and a quarter of an inch of wiggle room adjustability there. You can see, we do have this locking bracket and it's going to allow us to lock this onto our shore power connection, so that no one can come along and take this off and get away with it. This is IP 65 rated so it's gonna hold up really well to dust and rain. You can basically spray this with a water hose and it will do fine. Of course, you're not gonna wanna do that especially with electricity, but that will give you an idea of how much rain could be coming down and this will still be able to resist that. This does have a surge module on the inside that is gonna be very easy to replace if you ever get hit with a large spike. You just have to open up the box here, disconnect it, pull it out. We do sell replacement surge modules that can be put in there. So rather than having to replace the whole unit, you can just replace that individual surge module if you ever need to. So, nice little option there for you, but overall I think this is gonna be a really nice option if you're wanting to ensure that the power coming from your shore power is not going to affect the electronics in your RV. We do have another option that's a little bit more of an upgrade from this, that's got the same Bluetooth capability but it's also gonna have an emergency shutoff. So if your voltage is outside that set parameter it will automatically shut off the power so that it's not going to go into your RV. This doesn't have that capability but it is gonna alert you on your phone and also show you those lights there. So, if you we're to have a problem, you could run out and pull it out, disconnect from that power. But overall, I think this is gonna be a really nice option for you make sure that your RV is gonna be safe while you're out there hooked up to shore power. So that's gonna complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..
