electricy keeps going off

Today the power to my 2008 dynasty went off 7 or 8 time but would reset itself right away and i would have to reset the clocks and wait for direct tv receivers to reset. No breakers have to be reset. I unpluged the auto former and it has not done it sense, could that have been the problem or am i just waiting for it to happen again.

Ken, if you unplugged the auto-transformer and the power stayed on the I would assume that is the problem

Yes it has stayed on but the voltage has dropped to 111 volts. but now my wife turned off the electric side of the aqua hot and the volts went up to 118 so i suspect the wiring here coming from inside the house to the motorhome may not be very good and the auto former is still dissconected

Connect everything back, place lights at various places as well as knowing where to measure voltages.

When power stops look at the lights and measure voltages to see where the issue us located.

Suspect loose wire inside connection for transformer, these tend to work loose over time, combined with higher loads the changing temperature of the wire due to resistive connection causes the connection to become so loose the wire almost Falls out of the connection.

Do not just fix it, put everything back to normal, then confirm with measurements where the connection is failing, repair and retest.

Then inspect everything else
