You are mixing up a converter with an inverter!
A converter changes 120AC power to 12-volt DC.
An inverter changes 12_volts DC to 120-volt AC power.
Your surge protector is telling you that the power between the rig and shore power source has an open neutral.
Are you using an adapter?
Are you connecting to 30, 50 or 15/20 shore power?

Assuming that you ARE using a converter and the power post is confirmed good and the surge protector is reporting an open ground, then the problem is between the post and the surge protector.

Make and model of the converter may be helpful.

Are you using a surge protector that plugs into an outlet in the RV to protect individual devices? Or a surge protector that plugs into your shore power outlet to protect the whole RV?

Is your shore power cable or plug damaged in any way?
