This is something you want he dealer to look at, most likely you have a power converter it takes the incoming AC voltage and makes the DC voltage and charges the battery. IF there was a wiring fault with the RV it should be covered under new warranty. I can say that if you were trying to plug into a standard household outlet with an adapter and extension cord they may not honor the warranty. IF you accidental plugged into a 220 welder or dryer outlet that would not be covered as well so you need to be careful what you disclose to the dealer. Plugging into a 220 outlet can smoke the inverter and damage the other appliances in the RV.

IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
