THIS IS CALLED A "HOT SKIN" CONDITION AND CAN BE FATAL! DISCONNECT THE POWER CORD IMMEDIATELY! The problem is in the plug MOST of the time, but can be caused by a short in the load center. Check the plug on the shore cord and see if it looks like it has gotten hot............the rubber around the lugs will look melted. The plug can be cut off and replaced. IF that looks good, then get back to me and we can go from there. All follow ups are included in our fee.
