Time to dig out the volt/ohm meter and start checking. Also if problems in DC circuit side as well, you may have a converter issue. BTW, did you have a surge protector in use? If not, get a good one; hardwired in preferably.
Ouch! The separation factor was unexpected. Yes the surge protector is to help with bad power. Over or under voltage (surge or power spike/brown-out) can damage converters. Also any ac powered electronics. I recommend Progressive Dynamics hardwired version. I lost a converter that way and mine was a lot less solid state than the newer ones which are even more sensitve.
Hope it's OK too. Is it a deck mount or in powercenter? Mite be slightly cheaper to go deck if it isn't already. And it's not always at rv parks that you can have problems. It could happen if you have it hooked up at S&B home with a dedicated circuit if you get a brownout or some other electrical issue. That's why surge protection with over/under voltage shut down is important. As for hardwired, from what I've heard/seen in forums, several states won't allow the plug-in type (building code).
