An outlet tester won't identify neutral tied to ground when it shouldn't be. That's "normal" in residential wiring.

It won't hurt to use it to make sure lines aren't swapped though.

I e-mailed a link to this thread to my electrical friend. If all else fails, I made an appointment at the RV repair shop for Friday. If I can't get this straightened out by then, I'll take it in and get it done.

The final hurdle before the trip!

Good point RoadKingMoe,
That is exactly what a factory maintenance man did to correct what he thought was a problem with my fuse box. Tying a jumper from neutral to ground is part of what was tripping my GFI breakers in the garage.

Diana, didn't you say you got a service manual with your trailer? If so, have someone take the breaker box cover off and compare the wiring (unplugged of course). The maintenance guy didn't even tell me that he had wired in the jumper but it was evident when I compared the schematic in my manual.

Nope, no manual. There's a fusebox in the closet with three switches. One looks like the main breaker and two smaller ones.

I appreciate everyone's patience. It seems like the older I get the less I know. I'm sure in a few years programming a VCR will be beyond me.....oh wait....it already is!!!

Diana,
You will be surprised at how much you learn about the operation of your trailer and it's systems. I learned something new today about Argosys only 2 yrs. older than my trailer that I didn't know. You'll be telling yourself, "Oh, that's how it works!" before you know it.
