Unplug the coach yes this is a dangerous situation. Only if you think its safe to physically unplug. If not turn breaker off from within home.

You have short in your electric. I had this on my old Fleetwood. The cord got pulled out to far and was shorting against bus bridge in fuse box. I would checke behind your fuse box where it comes into camper then start tracing wires to see where short is.

Is it static electricity or an actual electrical shock. I'd be surprised if you're getting shocked through the paint but it's certainly possible. Have you taken an electrical meter with one end to ground and see if you're getting any voltage readings on your camper?

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

You have a problem. Please read this link that we keep as a sticky in the electrical section from the expert on these situations, Mike Sokol.

Shut off the breaker for your water heater and then measure the voltage between the RV and ground. If you have the electric element on and connect power, it will burn out the element and and can short to the frame. If this doesn't fix it, you have a wiring problem and need it looked at immediately.
