MyRV touch pads not working

None of my touch pads in RV working. After close lightning strike pads quit working. Checked fuses on mother board in belly of rv and 25 amp fuse was blown which I replaced. Touch pad in living room was warm to touch and would not come on. Other two touch pads in coach will come on but will not work. Replaced circuit board in living room, lights up but will not work. Unable to find a repair person in area to come out and not able to take rv to shop as I'm using it for work. Any suggestions.

It may not of helped a lightening strike close by, or directly, but if you don't have a surge protector/ems then I'd HIGHLY recommend doing so, either portable or hardwired, it will save you from the same issues from bad park pedestals. The Progressive Industries 50 amp unit is a very good unit with great customer service. We have the portable which has worked great due to trading 5ers 3 times so didn't have to rewire each unit to remove or install.

Thanks for the reply. Just purchased a surge protector yesterday. Did find someone to come out and check it out. Hopefully they will be able to take car of it.

That happened to me awhile back. Turns out ONE of the pads was bad.. Have you tried removing one pad at a time?

Yes, replaced one pad in trailer that did not work. Found a RV repair who works on lippert about 60 miles away. Tech came out, spent 6.5 hrs trouble shooting system. Per technician control modules are not working. These modules are located behind the storage area in belly of fifth wheel. Very difficult to access and work on. Parts on order, hopefully this is the problem. Thanks for your reply.

The more I read about these new fangled pads, remotes or in command systems I'm very glad we have the old fashioned switches & buttons to operate everything, there's enough stuff on rvs to keep maintained without having to haul around your own "IT" guy.
I'm sure when they work they are fantastic, but reading on here & on a couple other forums there's a lot of them that don't work & then there's no way to operate the items it's designed to control.

Ditto Danny's comments. Salesman tried to talk us into it when we ordered our '16, but we held fast and said "No Thanks" and glad we did.

Danny,

As a retired Electrical / Electronics Engineer, I agree with you 1000%. If a switch goes bad, its a $5.00 repair. If the electronic I-Pad or controller goes bad, its a $300.00 to $500.00 repair.

I recall the 2013 rally factory tour they had a new unit setup outside with the latest greatest goodies, one being the touch pad to operate everything, no switches at all & everyone I talked to or over heard talking about it thought was a cool high tech idea, but no one wanted it in their RW. I told Tom Montague while touring through that unit that it was very techie, but didn't want it mine.
Sorry, didn't mean to highjack the OP question, hopefully someone can help them out.
