The AVS30 will protect from over & under voltage & spikes.
You probably weren't ripped off as the PCB was probably silly money from Dometic. Around £250 for the PCB and heating element from £60 up to £110 depending on model.

Seen AC circuit boards knackered by high voltage surges, lightning allegedly struck a nearby grid transformer and the pub next door had to extinguish a fridge in the kitchen 😬 ⚡
