Shock

I had similar situation. Was getting 23+ volts when checking with meter from MH to probe in ground (dirt ground). Eventually went to 70+ volts. Only happened when plugged in at home to 15A thru adapters. Eventually determined it was a bad ground (open) connection on female end of 30A extension cord. Replaced female connection and all is well.

Good luck

Make sure the ground prong on your extension cord is not missing.


That is what it was on my MH, broken ground prong!

Grounded

Home/house neutral and ground wired together. TTs ground and neutral ARE separate (they are supposed to be separate), sounds like TT missing neutral/ground, check your plug, cord and house outlet. TT is on rubber insulators/tires.

I am guessing static ele is not a problem in Florida ???
Unlike the SoCal desert !!!
