Has this possibly caused any damage to my coach? What should I look for/check?.
No harm done, except maybe to your well being.
Not the kind of tingle we choose to experience.
You can get a cheap polarity tester at Home Depot. It will save you considerable time checking out your other outlets.
More importantly, carry it with the trailer as a tool.
When you arrive at a campground or resort, always check the polarity of their electrical service. Not likely, but it could be reversed.
I think everyone should carry a polarity tester.
We all know that there are a lot of shocks in our daily lives, but who would have ever thought that you would get one from an Airstream.
