Surge Protector

I have a 2011 Winnebago Tour 42QD . Do I need a surge protector or is built in?

There's no mention of one in the operator manual, so I would say it's not built-in unless one was added by a previous owner:

Personally, I think a surge protector is highly desirable if not essential. I added one after a shore power issue trashed my microwave in the TT I owned before my MH. I transferred my surge suppressor from my TT to my MH. You can buy either a portable surge protector or a built-in one. Adding a built-in one is a pretty straight-forward DIY project assuming you're relatively handy and are comfortable with tasks like changing out an electrical outlet in your house.

There are quite a few threads on both and on the subject:

I strongly recommend getting more than a surge protector. A full EMS with multiple protection functions is really what is needed. Progressive makes a nice one that is very popular. During 4 years of camping in multiple locations our EMS has saved us several times from low voltage situations but never a surge.
