Sorry for the delay in someone getting to your question! We are short handed this weekend due to some being gone for the holiday and I was out for a few hours myself. Do you still need some assistance with this issue? I have an RV repair shop and do these repairs for a living and can help you sort out the problem here. Just get back to me when you can. Thanks!

Yea, it melted the plug for 110v so we are about lost
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 1 month ago

Were you using any kind of adapter on the cord? Or any extension cord? This makes a huge difference. And you need to turn off all other AC uses when the weather is hot as the hotter the ambient temps the more power the A/C requires.

Do you have or can you come up with a small digital multimeter? That would allow us to do some testing and sort this out. About $20 or so at most hardware stores and easy to use. I can direct you in some testing.
