x23j wiring question "help"

I want to add a hard wired inverter to my trailer. My thought was to wire it inline from the receptacle output from the breaker, then all my outlets will be controlled with shore or battery power. The unit has a transfers switch so shore/generator power would pass through when on then battery takes over otherwise. I disconnect the wire from this breaker. My question is (with disconnected from breaker) I use my ohm meter and put one lead to any hot side of any receptacle (all outlets are on same leg) then I should only get resistance reading if touch disconnected wire but I get a reading when I touch any hot from all other breakers. I was not expecting this to happen which now worries me to splice this unit in to feed outlet. Again this breaker is only for fridge and GFIC and outlets. Why would I get ANY ohm reading from the hot side of outlet to anything else. I hope this makes sense to someone. Do you think jayco would give me a wiring schematic?

Perhaps some leakage through a GFCI recep in the circuit is causing this.
