The GFCI outlet has a small green light on it that shines when the outlet has been wired correctly per the instructions it came with...my green light is shining

Awesome, glad it all worked out! I never leave for a trip without my voltmeter, it's a must have for troubleshooting.

Glad you got it all fixed, now you can enjoy camping this year!

Our trailer is coming out of storage in April but we just got another foot of snow and its -15C. Still a bit chilly!

Got a new RV and so far no real trouble with it. Couldn't get cable tv to work, removed the amplifier from the wall and found it was wired wrong. On our shake down trip from Florida to Texas I decided to check everything I could. Started at the battery disconnect, one terminal was very lose, tightened it. Opened up the electrical panel and checked every screw, several connections there were not tight at all. The grounding bar in the panel had several connections that were not tight, snug but not tight. Got into the converter and found the same thing, terminals not screwed down tight at all. At some point a single lose connection could cause some real problems, glad I checked.
