That's why you want one of these: EMS-HW50C

If you are still plugged into the same location, I would do some serious investigation before anything else is fried. If at an RV campground, ask maintenance to check the receptacle and connections. You should also disconnect from the power source and check all of your connections. These RVs experience a lot of vibration as they travel down the road and connections can and will loosen over time.
I'm wondering from his initial post if this isn't a 30 ampere/single phase service. No neutral would mean his original thought of "surge" may be correct?

True. Since I have 50 amp, I tend to think in that vane. If 30 amp, loss of neutral would not fry everything.
