Alrighty....we're in business! I confirmed that the inside-house outlet was NOT a GFCI protected outlet, and that there was sufficient voltage at the camper plug even with using an extension cord. I was a little disappointed that when I plugged the whole setup into the camper 30A outlet, there was still no power after I turned the relevant breakers on. At least no power until the after the start-up delay period from the surge protector
I forgot about that!
So...thank you all for all of your patience and endless advice. And I apologize for my mini-firedrill!
