Stray Voltage

I have about 1 volt of stray voltage on the frame of my Food Truck when it is plugged in to shore power.  Is this common?  Anybody else have this?

    I have some stray voltage as well (although mine is DC). I'm going to try and track it down this week.

    I'm the worst electrician in the world but....... if your running a 4 wire system your ground should be at the pole where your power originates. I would think (keeping my declaration in mind) if it is grounded properly you shouldn't get any stray voltage. There are some on the forum that are really knowledgeable about this lets hope they will answer.

    Google RV Hot skin, a lot of info on what to check for.  If you've wired your truck you need to check a lot of different possibilities, not easy to troubleshoot from a forum.
