Has anyone found a way to receive notifications of power loss in the coach when you are away from the unit?

A nest camera pointed at a voltmeter might do the job.

or maybe a plug-in, wifi enabled power failure detector like this.

The problem is when the power goes out, so does the wifi.

This is probably overkill for you, but my Ring Home Security System will notify me when the power is lost. It has a built-in battery backup along with cellular backup so can send notifications without internet (but obviously it needs to be in cellular range (I think it uses AT&T). Looks like the cheapest system costs $200 so is expensive for just a power monitor, but comes with door and motion sensors if you want to be notified if someone breaks in.

Then I guess you'd know there's a problem.
