hope this helps someone else.This is our second year with our 177se.We haven’t had trouble until this trip.First campground no problems second campground power kept going on and off. We tried for 2 days to figure it out because it would stay on awhile then go off.Called our dealer who was great but 2 hours from home not much they could do.We had checked everything including our fuses all looked fine. Finally we went to an auto parts store got better fuses and we haven’t had any trouble since

Based on the sequence of events you describe I honestly don’t think it was the fuses. Fuses are either ‘good’ or ‘bad’, there really aren’t (generally speaking) ‘better’ fuses to get.
Since your problem was specific to that campground (based on your description), I believe the issue was the power feed at THAT campground. Dirty incoming power at campgrounds is quite common.
To monitor that, I installed a neat little system that is a surge suppressor and monitors power, and if what you have coming in might damage anything in the camper, it will automatically disconnect. It has a remote monitor so you can view incoming voltage, amperage, and a fault code. I mounted the display (it is very small, doesn’t take up any room) in the closet of our 199FKS. The module itself I mounted in the bottom of the closet as you have to tap into the incoming power.
Having this, it likely would have told you that your incoming power was bad.
Happy to post pics if you are interested.
