OK, this is a good start. For comparison's sake, I have my '99 Solaris plugged into a 20 amp GFCI circuit here. The breaker in the panel is a regular 20 amp breaker, and the outlet is a 20 GFCI duplex. When I installed the curcuit, I tested everything with the two testers that you see on the left - the red one (for GFCI outlets) and the yellow one (for regular non-GFCI outlets):
The house circuit was fine. And the GFCI properly trips if there is a ground fault. I then plugged in the trailer, and tested every outlet in it and they all tested ok, too.
If you have access to similar testers, I would suggest that you do the same procedure. The red and yellow testers will tell you if there is any kind of problem in the wiring. If there is, then you have a starting point for finding and fixing the problem.
FWIW, many of us carry both of these testers with our rigs and use them to test campground power before hooking up the trailer. I also carry the multimeter (on the right in the above picture) and use that to check voltage at the outlet, too.
