With all of the recent hurricanes and flooding we are getting a lot of calls concerning our optional PowerSnap “Hurricane” Weather Base found exclusively on the HyPower PowerPort.
From flooding or a severe gale, water damages cause some of the biggest losses in a hurricane – leading to major refurbishing or total replacement of electrical systems including power pedestals. NEC code requires that all breakers, receptacles, meters and other small wire components be replaced if exposed to water to prevent shock and fire hazard in Marinas or RV Parks. The PowerSnap Weather Base is a great choice allowing you to protect your investment by removing the power heads off the bases and taking them to a safe, dry location. The bases are covered with a weather cap to protect the terminal bar. Once the storm passes, it is fast and easy to be the first back in business – normally with just a little clean up.
This is a great option for coastal Marinas and RV Parks including those inland where high water and flooding create issues. We even have customers that use them for winterization, pulling the power heads at the end of season to reduce wear and prevent vandalism.

Bernice State Park in Oklahoma has pulled their units three times due to lake flooding. Old Port Cove in Florida is one of the original users of the “hurricane” base recently surviving Hurricane Irma. Marinas and RV Parks from the Bahamas Green Turtle Marina to Sea Harbour Yacht Club in North Carolina, Sanctuary in Belize to Galveston’s Jamaica Beach RV Resort have found that the patented HyPower PowerSnap “Hurricane” Weather Base can be a great investment.
