Over eleven years of full-time RVing, we can’t begin to count the number of times we’ve hooked up at RV parks and seen readings on our voltmeter that are way too low. Low voltage can cause valuable electronic equipment to draw more amps, or current, which can lead to overheating and premature failure.

The solution to low voltage is an autoformer. We use the name that’s synonymous with autoformers: Hughes.


Hughes Autoformers is now offering RVgeeks viewers a 10% discount when you order either a 30-amp (Model #RV2130-SP) or 50-amp (Model #RV220-50-SP) direct from them at Use the Coupon Code “RVGEEKS” at checkout!
NOTE: this discount does not apply to any other Hughes products

So we’re excited to announce our newest RVgeeks Contest! On Monday, May 5, 2014 at 8pm Pacific Time, two lucky RVgeeks viewers will each win a Hughes Autoformer! We’ll be giving away one 50-amp unit and one 30-amp unit, with a total retail value of over $900!

The contest ends on Monday, May 5, 2014 at 8 pm Pacific time, so watch the video for details and be sure to enter today!


( Don’t forget to subscribe to our blog to be notified of  upcoming giveaways! )

While low voltage isn’t desirable for any equipment, the things most vulnerable to damage are devices with motors in them, like clothes washers & dryers, residential refrigerators and expensive equipment that just about every RV uses, such as microwave ovens and especially air conditioners.

Visit Hughes for more information & Use coupon code “RVGEEKS” at checkout to save 10% on the purchase of a 30-amp (Model #RV2130-SP) or 50-amp (Model #RV220-50-SP) autoformer!

Be sure to enter the contest, and good luck!
