Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the park's system caused damage to your property through being faulty, then they are liable for the damage caused unless you signed some written agreement to hold them harmless for any damage caused by their electrical hookup. So, if you did not sign any such waiver of liability, if their electrical hookup caused damage to your system because it was not properly working, then you can seek to pursue them for damages and if their insurance will not pay you, then you can sue them in small claims court for the damages and costs of repair/replacement.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
