Got park electrician to come by both legs are showing 120. Hard to believe that every thing electrical is acting up.

That means nothing. With no load it will be fine. You need to place a load on the lines, like an ac, and check the voltage. It will probably be low. If you have one real high and one real low, it means an open neutral. Just outing a meter on the pedestal proves nothing.

Don. I got tired of fighting the parks low voltage and put a Hughes Auto Transformer in the trailer.  It will boost the voltage 10% once it reached a preset lower voltage.  With the Hughes showing that it was boosting, no low voltage in the trailer.

We do pretty much the same . Our coach is setup for 50 Amp . When we are on a 30 Amp site , I hook the Hughes in line every time . 

We still have to watch our 'consumption' , just a little bit , but , we get along fine .

Well I placed one A.C. 2 months ago due to motor burning up. Now the 2nd A.C. compressor went out on the other.

Life's good.

Actually, that sounds about normal. Somewhere in the past you were more than likely running a low voltage condition. That caused the motors to run hotter than they should and shortened the life and it finally caught up with you.
