I would estimate there is a bad ground on the AC system. Double check the GREEN wire on the AC cord to prove that it does go to chasis ground on your trailer.

Or a bad ground on the outlet you're plugged into.

go the the searh tab and put "hot skin" in the google search. it's potentially lethal and may be reversed polarity.
