What information do you need
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 8 months ago

S​orry for the delay in someone getting to your question. Friday afternoons can be very busy and I just got home from work. 30 amp cord (3 prongs) or 50 amp cord (4 prongs) on this?

H​ow did you determine that there was 120 VAC to the trailer? If you have a small digital multimeter this is easier to track down.

H​ow did you measure that and where? Do you have a small digital multimeter? About $20 or so at most hardware stores and easy to use.

I have a $100 Fluke meter I measure the voltage at the end of the cord coming from the house to the trailer there is 120 volts there it's a 30 amp plug

There is an electrical panel in the bathroom is there a breaker there for the alternating current
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 8 months ago

So you measured this at the main breaker in the load center? If not, take a measurement there and see what you have. Is there any evidence on the plug on the cord that shows that is has been hot and that the rubber around the prongs looks melted somewhat?

The plug looks good no evidence of any Berning
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 8 months ago

T​ake a voltage reading on the main breaker and see what you have there.
