    If it's just a few lifted / burnt tracks, then any half decent electronics engineer would be able to repair the track. The downside being that they wouldn't be able to fully test the PCB without the rest of the system / motorhome.
    I'm guessing the supplier would rather sell you a new PCB / assembly ?
