My husband uses a bicycle lock with a cable.  The surge protector was designed with a metal plate attached with dual holes to utilize a lock.

Yes...I was wrong, it is not a 30 plus a 20 amp.   It is like the electric feed to a dryer, electric stove, air conditioner, etc. in your house.  AT SOME RV PARKS THE PEDESTALS ARE STILL WIRED AS 30/20 AMP LEGS.   Check the circuit breakers on the pedestal!

But the main point...when plugged into a 30 amp (via an adapter) circuit or run from the generator remains the same....only one leg is "hot" so the 2nd a/c will not turn on.

There is some current discussion on the use and location of a surge guard.  For those who might use a portable one, I'm posting our method of securing our portable surge guard:

We secure our portable surge guard to the electric post at an RV park with a length of double loop chain and two padlocks.  One padlock attaches snugly to the surge guard power cord at one end of the chain.  The chain is then wrapped around the electric post and the second padlock connects that end of the chain snugly to the first padlock.  The electric post usually has a large box at the top of the post that blocks lifting the chain arrangement off of the post.

This will not stop someone with a bolt cutter from taking the surge guard, but should protect it in most cases.

I hope you din't get one of those locks that goes around both plugs to lock them together. They only work on the electric cords that are perminatly attached to the RV not the cords that are removable like ours. The thief just takes the protector and the electric cord together.  Cry

Thank you all for your insight!  In the interest of getting immediate protection, I did more research on theft prevention for the portable models and I've opted for one of those for the time being.

I wonder if this is a high temperature safety switch.  I know my home a/c heat pump has a sensor that reads the ambient temperature of air flowing through the handler.  It shuts down if the temperature hits 140 degrees.  The idea is if your home is on fire, you don't want to be fanning the flames with your a/c.  Just a thought ....

Not sure if yours is the same, but ours is a Stowaway screen door.  Liftco is the frame and coach door.

Stowaway is apparently made/sold by a number of companies (Stowett, Lorge).  There are mobile screen repair companies all over the place ( for instance) and kits available to fix small holes at places like Home Depot, Ace, Lowes (

I'd suggest calling Kermit, as Sue suggested.....he might have material that can be replaced.

Hello George,
I replaced my screen door last year.  It was not all that difficult to take the door off.  If I can find the instructions I will post here. The top and bottom end caps removed will give you access to the roller. Finding the replacement screen locally was a pain. Most custom glass shops can provide it..
With the screen door off I was able to clean and paint below the channels that just snap off.
I was almost tempted to replace it with a hinged door.

oh nice - no, we have a 2015, 2350 and it's the side window.  It does not stay open and there is no screen.  The factory can not address this for "code" reasons.  Thanks.

We have a 2015 2551 and the driver's side bed is the emergency exit.  There is also a screen for the "crank out" lower portion of the window where you can turn the knob to open it.    only 1 handle on that window.  The window on the opposite side has 2 crank out knobs.
