Breaker trip Salem 2011 KQBS

I have a 2011 Salem KQBS rv.
I have an electrical issue I hope you can help.
I plugged the rv into my outside electrical on my house and it tripped the electrical on the house (outside plug which works fine with everything else). It also did the same thing last week when we plugged the rv into my friends new garage.
I unplugged the rv, turned off all the breakers in the rv and plugged the rv back into the same outlet. My plan was to try to turn on all the breakers in the rv to see which one would trip the breaker again on the house. It was ok when I turned on the rv breaker for the Main power, microwave, ac, but when I turned on the breaker that was marked ccnv/gry it would trip the outside breaker on the house again. Is this the convertor? Any idea where this is located?

I'll suggest a little different approach for you. Most "house" breakers are 15 amp --- maybe 20 amp. Before you start your test as you've described, make sure that your big 110 users in your trailer are off ---- you will not be able to run your AC in the trailer if your plugging in to a 15 or 20 amp house breaker so make sure it's off. Make sure your AC water heater is off ---- if you have an AC water heater.

Then try your test as you've described it and see if you don't get better results.

I turned off all the other breakers and just turned on the main power. When I turned on the convertor/grd breaker in the rv the outside breaker on my house tripped again.
I found the converter behind the breaker/fuse box.
Just wondering next steps.
Thanks so much
