My first guess, due to the fact that 12V DC is not apt to do that: He has an inverter that is on, and the wrong wire on the inverter output is grounded.

Another example where an upgrade hurts. Before trailers had electricity, this problem never occurred! How long ago was that, 100 years? Jim

low level shock

I was the original poster. I still am alive. I only seem to notice this problem when I am parked in my own yard, hooked up to my 30 amp feed from the professionally rewired house. Right now the trailer is parked in storage due to street repair. I strongly suspect you might be right, I had my inverter replaced by a less than trusted shop (dealer) that now that I found another near by that I trust, I never go to the one I don't trust. When I pull it out, I will explore further. (and i have heart problems, no pacemaker, but irregular beats)

They may have had 6VDC from the beginning. Now just who added 120VAC to campers?

You might want to check out the No Shock Zone web site at No Shock Zone. It covers some techniques for detecting and resolving some electrical problems that can cause shock hazards in RV's. (It also covers a few electrical issues at performance venues.)

If when you bring the trailer home and find that the problem does in fact occur at the house consider getting Another Professional to check the house out. The word Professional does not insure Compliance. Years ago I ran a laundromat. A so called Professional had wired it. While standing in water to move one of the machines I got 110. A check revealed one other machine was wired backwards. 2 out of 24 is a passing grade but not what you want when dealing with something that can kill you.

When evaluating Professional remember 50% of the Doctors finished in the bottom 1/2 of their class.

final solution

Turns out that the cord had a crack that allowed water in, and that caused a slight trickle of juice. New cprd no problem.
