With my brother's help I have discovered that Verizon limits how much energy one can draw on the system. For years my brother has added all sorts of devices for Mom and we have a multitude of phones and such. After a storm that took out a router I suddenly had all sorts of problems getting just phones to work and with those knocked out so was the internet and Mom's emergency button. After repairmen and continued problems with no sources located big brother figured the situation. It involved just tweaking the phone situation a bit...putting in use the simple phones that didn't require the transformers plugged in the wall. I suspect when I discontinued some of the services that I didn't need due to duplication that the service limited my usage though they did not indulge that and I don't think they even make their own repairmen privy to that...and the very good electrician that came out was stumped as well.
I am packed for my short journey across counties to the lovely vineyard with grapes and flowers tomorrow. I will take pictures and post. Thanks to all.
