I have camped in a couple of places that had the electrical receptacles hooked up back wards. When I touched the camper it knocked the stew out of me. I asked the park ranger if I could correct the receptacle and they did not have a problem with it, and that solved that problem.
a grounded frame is hot even when your main breaker is in the off position. Just the way I did it. I'm not to concerned with the "code" only our safety.

At the very least, you should get an extension cord with a built-in circuit breaker. You can also get them with GFCI protection.
