You and Daddy need to make a "story board" with photos of your daughter doing the necessary things to get ready for bed (getting pajamas on, brushing teeth, going potty, reading book or whatever you guys do). Both of you should have one that way she will know that it is the same routine no matter where she is. I think this will make her feel more secure and willing. It won't work over night but once she gets used to it she might look forward to it! Good luck!

Talk to he dad and see if there is anything new or changes going on. Is she afraid of something like monsters in her room? let her know it is okay to sleep and be in bed and you will see her when she wakes up or her dad will.

talk to her dad and ask him to keep her on the same routine. if he holds down what you do, then she will get use to things being the same whether she is home or away
