We were at a campground on our recent trip...all we had to do was run a/c and my blow dryer at the same time and the surge protector cut the service...
fortunately, all we had to do was unplug the surge protector, plug it back in and wait for it to reset....It happened twice...
We DID let the folks at the cg know what was happening. They offered to move us, however, it was a one night stop.
However, I did decide...when using the blow dryer, I shut off the a/c for the couple minutes it takes, just to be on the safe side.
Ron, also, suggested...instead of using blow dryer on high...run it on low...doesn't draw as much 'juice' .
