Why no surge protector?
Sent from my LG G2
I had them on the tv, ps, and computer.
Were Tripplite brand for what its worth.
Have to send them in. Neither show signs of damage. Computer was wifi so nothing could have came in through an ethernet cable also.
Both surge suppressors still show protected green led status.
The lady on my claim with them asked a ton of questions about what was and wasn't plugged into them, however when I talked to her I did not know what was all damaged in the house. It was a few days later when I washed a load of sheets that I found the he washer is now timing and cycling oddly and then had the dryer dry my sheets for 8 hours till I came home and found it was still trying to auto dry my sheets...
Have you ever tried to fit egyptian cotton sheets to a bed after they have been dried for 8 hours? LOL pita. Too small now.
Also, since everything was fried including the router, modem, and a tele in the office I had a 4 plug protector and told them everything that was damaged in the office not thinking what was and wasn't plugged into it. I now have to draw them a sketch of what was plugged in and how it was all connected. Not looking too hopeful. They think I used extension cords or plug multipliers now.
When things go awry it is hard to discern what was and what wasn't plugged in after you have already replaced things one by one to try to get the home up and rolling again.
The modem and the router and tele were not plugged into the protector. the computer was, as was the printer, stand alone hd, and monitor. The computer fried the motherboard and power supply.
The livingroom had the 60", the ps3, the house stereo and the cable box, only the ps3 and the tv fried in there. The stereo is from the early 90's. That cable box was an older unit newer to me that was the size of a wendys tray or larger, was told that it is a unit dating back to 2002, but it still works and was doing it's job, and still is on a backup 13" tele now.
