If you'd feel safer doing so then you can. The power supply has built-in safeguards and is kind of it's own surge protector.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Does equipment at your location normally experience damage from lightning?

 

The console's power supply has an internal fuse. It's not user-serviceable. If you're not having issues with lightning damaging equipment now (like your TV, computer, phone, cablemodem, etc) then doing something different for the 360 would seem to be paranoia.

 

It's a $200-$300 console....
