I'd advise you to talk to someone that has more experience with your specific panel than me (Randy if you bought from him) before proceeding. I think you will have to provide power to the hot bus bar by using a jumper wire. (Remove the black wire from the bottom of one 15a breaker and insert it into the hot bus bar. The black wire from the converter is place correctly. Provide a separate black 14ga wire jumper from the breaker to the bus bar)
As for your other problem, I'll bet a dollar against a donut hole that either the ground and neutral are reversed or a hot and neutral are reversed somewhere. Also, screw touching both ground and neutral could energize the skin. There are three breakers protecting (individual circuit, trailer main, shore main) If the hot wire was grounded by a screw as you suspect one of those breakers would trip instantly.

Here are the before photos of the old 110v panel.
I took out the old panel and replaced it with an intelli-power 4045.
In this photo the power into the trailer has the hot line into 30a breaker. Neutral to the neutral busbar and ground to the ground BuS bar. There is the old ground - a larger gauge copper wire - From the ground busbar to the interior trailer skin.
Then, there were three 110 wires going into the old panel. I put the hot from each into a 15a breaker and the Neutrals into the neutral busbar and the ground into the ground bus bar.
The one fit I am confused about is that there is a hot wire from the inverter charger going to a hot BuSpar. There is no power to the hot busbar
