Edc.,

The 120V 30 amp RV plug should have proper connection.

Let me paste the photo here it will be little big but it is very clear you can not miss this one.

Before you work on this one turn off the breaker to this plug before you do anything and double check the connection I have a feeling you may have reversed one of the connections.

Hope this will help ya.

Merci.

I would examine the receptacle to check all the connections. You might have a ground close to a hot wire or screw.
