Not sure if this answer's your question, but

Your Ollie should have a EMS system installed (likely in the attic on the newer models). Check it out in the Oliver University to see if that provides the protection you are looking for.

Some Ollie owner's also use a surge protected connected at the power pole that the Ollie cord is pluggged into. 

Below is a picture of the EMS. This unit scrolls through and measures (1) Incoming line voltage, (2) Incoming amperage and (3) a error code which I think indicates if the incoming electrical source is acceptable and if not will stop the source from providing power to the Ollie.

The only person that I  can remember installing an autoformer is @WhatDa. He hasn't been on the forum for awhile, but you could try a pm. 

Here's the thread where he discussed it.

No direct knowledge but... Have heard that autoformers are frowned upon in some campgrounds because they pull the power from other sites.  Heard it on the internet so it must be true.  Might want to consider that...    Good Luck.
