Both a/c's acting funny today

I came home today to find my rear a/c humming, I had to kill the power at the breaker to shut the compressor down. I Jumped online and found it to be pretty common, so I ended up ordering a new control panel.
No big deal I have my front a/c to hold me over, or do I
....
I went to turn it on and it's only working on low/med, No fan on the high setting ?

I cannot find any trouble shooting online for Dometic a/c's.
The front a/c is only three years old and rarely get used. Anyone have the high fan setting quit working?

Thank's,

You may also check your voltage coming into the coach. Make sure you have at least 110v(you may be ok slightly below that (108v?)).

I've asked the campground twice to come check it and they haven't yet.
That was my first thought, but my compressor is working on the high setting, but no fan?
I've got a new control panel coming today for the rear a/c. Hope fully that will cure that a/c & I can focus on the front a/c

This would be a great time to buy a digital volt ohm meter and a progressive industries hardwired surge guard with remote display.
As you can see in pic "barely" it shows im using 10amps.
It also shows incoming voltage .

Thanks Turbs, that is an excellent idea. Takes all the guessing away.

Well after the campground never coming to check my voltage at the 50 amp box I bought myself a new multimeter and started checking myself.
Everything looks ok, 235v at the box, and 116v at the outlets inside the camper while one a/c is running. A touch low, but within spec.

My inverter/converter also checked out good.

Surprisingly after everything checked out my front a/c started acting normal again. (I'm thinking that I had a low voltage situation)

Either way I like your suggestion Turbs and I will def look into that meter.
