These "hockey puck" 15/30 Amps adaptors are a typical source of open grounds.
The round female ground does not make electrical contact with the male counterpart.
Notice in the picture the electrode of the female ground is visible only because it has been crimped to fix the problem.

We had the same problem. Call an electrician and have him check the wiring of your receptacle that the RV cable plugs into, (etc)

If you are standing in water and touching the RV, electrocution is possible. I don't mess with 110vac .
