Howdy, every things was clean and tight, This 05 Safari is really clean, and well taking care of, just can't figure why this happened, unless it was a power surge, which I didn't have a surge protector. Thank you for your info, yet!!

This was a set up for a camper could stay there until there was a opening at the campground. It was a big campground (good Sam campground). I have never had trouble like this before. This was the second night I owned the Safari. Thanks for your info.
Your reference to a Cat D9......?? Are you familiar with them? Cat 777?

On the first night we owned our coach, I plugged into a campground 50 amp plug one cold winter day on a snow skiing trip. Sharon started to yell FIRE and I saw smoke. Turned out the campground electrical circuit had a missing neutral. That sent over 200 volts into the coach burning out several circuit boards, and cooking some wires. $1000 in parts alone. That is why I asked if anything else was burnt out besides the inverter.
