Ryan I have an idea that what has happened is a mouse problem. Notice the outer layer of the asphaltum wire loom that is eaten off and a small piece is left on the left most wire? If you pull the wires off and disconnect the adapter and peel back the wires you should find perfect wires. I have yet to find any deteriorated wires either in the 1985 PT40 that I now have or my previous 1982 FC35. Just get a little more good wire exposed and then splice on to it with some good wire.

As to the right AC meter. Do you have a circuit breaker off? Or are you connected to shore power using a 30A cord?
