so having 120v at the inverter is normal , the white wire should not have voltage to ground. Is your alarm clear now that you turned of the inverter 120v and 12 volt? depening on how your inverter is programed it will charge the battery. I leave the progressive off and have the inverter programed to charge batterys. read up in the manual how to program it.

I'm assuming you are using a 50amp- 4wire to the pedestal not a 30amp reducer. If you have any king of power comeing out of the inverter showing g voltage on the white call an electrician or magnum to get info if the unit is faulty. Normally a live neutral means you dropped a phase on the hydro side. Check it at the pedestal.

Might want to check your shore power cord. The wires in mine were not tightened from manufacturing and shorted out my whole system. Converter, microwave, washer, etc all fried. Wires were touching inside the plug.

I ran a power cord to the Gen side of the ATS and I ran a new supply supply from the ATS to the panel in the coach. I've had no issues on a two week trip and just got home. I ordered a Fluke Megger and I will test all the runs, but this was a really weird problem...

I appreciate all the suggestions, and if/when I find a smoking gun I'll post for others as a reference...

So it took me a while but I did find the problem. It was indeed the old ATS. I meggered all the supply runs and checked all connections, and then I meggered the old ATS, and wouldn't you know, black to white on the supply side failed!

I bought a used Fluke 1507 on ebay as I didn't want to pay $500 for a new one. What a handy tool! I had always wanted an insulation tester so I had a good reason to buy one.

FWIW, my Fluke true RMS multimeter DID NOT show the problem!

Thanks everyone who made suggestions.
