What causes intermittent loss of TV and or radio signal when certain lights are turned

Our 2013 42' Thunderbolt XLR 380 AMP, is now exhibiting yet more new issues!
We've used the RV a total of 60 days in 2013 and never had this problem.
During our current 7 week trip the radio and or TV, depending on what's on, will loose signal and totally go off if the bedroom, bathroom or lights in the living room are switched on.
Funny thing is that it does not happen at every park we stay at.
The TV is 110 v but the radio is 12 v and the sound system is powered by the Kicker 300 amp, which is also 12v.

Any suggestions as to where to start?

Last place we camped at was in the Pahranagat National park just east of Alamo, AZ.

I did not take pictures.
