Meet the all-new second-generation Power Watchdog smart RV surge protector from Hughes Autoformers. Like its predecessor, it delivers outstanding protection for your motorhome or towable when plugging into shore power. But this updated model also includes a host of new technologies and upgrades that enhance its capabilities and provide greater peace of mind.

Available in 30-amp and 50-amp models, the Power Watchdog smart RV surge protector monitors the power pedestal, watching for more than a dozen potential faults each second. This ensures only high-quality electricity flows into your rig, adding extra protection for delicate electronic devices like laptops, smartphones, and tablets. If it detects dangerous conditions, the Power Watchdog will automatically power down, but will restore power once normal conditions return. This is especially helpful in preventing low- and high-voltage spikes that can damage electronics, appliances, and other important equipment.

One of the key features of the new Power Watchdog is integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. This allows RV owners to wirelessly monitor and control the flow of power to their RV from anywhere in the world. A newly redesigned mobile app allows users to turn power on and off remotely and track power consumption more closely.

Other new features include enhanced weather protection for the entire surge protector, including a lockable clam-shell door that helps prevent theft and keep moisture out. An illuminated connection bay also makes it much easier to get connected in the dark, while an all-new replaceable surge module prevents catastrophic damage to the surge protector due to high-voltage spikes. That means you won’t have to replace the entire Power Watchdog but can easily repair it using basic tools. This important upgrade also gives the Power Watchdog a limited lifetime guarantee.
