Default Unsafe outlet?

I have a small Klein Tool Tester that is showing "Hot/Neu. Reverse" on a nearby outlet. Would it be safe to use this outlet for a couple of hours? Thanks in advance for any input. RT 210

well you could for a 2 prong plug ( not a 3 as the neutral and ground are often bonded).

But I'd really suggest you trace the source of the fault and correct it.

this will protect you and the RV ( fire).

start with the source of power to the RV- test that using a meter.

if you have a twistlock the tang with the right angle is the ground- the next largest is neutral and the smaller is the hot
