Hot Ground Reversed

Last year I put in a breaker for my water heater element add on. I thought everything was fine when I put it away. In getting ready for our first camp of the year nothing works. I have a plug in idiot light which has the lights showing Hot-Ground Reversed on all outlets. The converter is not working nor are the lights but the battery is charged (12.58 V) and no lights or pump working either.

Question. No time to take it in as Aug 1 is the first date available so how do I figure which wire in the circuit breaker is the culprit. All the outlets test 120 with a multimeter probe.

Any help would be appreciated. ps if you are near Peoria, IL I would pay for help.

Sounds like the outlet you are plugged into if everything is reversed unless you redid the shore power cord too.

Hot and ground reversed or hot and neutral?

hopefully hot and neutral because if it is hot and ground it is a short... well last I checked...and if nothing works I would suspect there is a short somewhere..nothing works right?
you're going to need a voltmeter... and I would highly recommend a EMS if you are not familiar with electricity..

what is the amperage you are working with 50 or 30?
