If your shore power connection is not grounded and you step from your rig onto a damp or wet surface, you may get shocked or even killed. Keep a line meter plugged into one of your house curcuits so you can monitor it. Things can change. Electricians can make mistakes and a lot of CG wiring is done by non-qualified folks. If possible, check the plug before you unhook your rigs. Reverse polarity can also fry some electrical components.
