Could be that, as I had that as well. While we are "out there" the exact same symptoms that you are seeing will occur with a bad battery connection, INCLUDING THE CHASSIS GROUND (don't ask me why I know that.) However, in my experience (and running a 17 year old motorhome in Florida gave me plenty of it, you need to trust something. I agree, start with a fresh chassis battery and go from there. At least you know that the battery isn't the problem and most roads start with the battery.
