Inverter install problem

I have 2-150 watt solar panels to 2 6 volt Golf batteries. I am adding a 2000 watt Go Power inverter. I have a 30 amp Go Power transfer switch. I finally decided to add a extra panel ( power box ) and put the tv recepticals and the micro wave through this panel. The panel I selected has a breaker and a ground fault. My problem is the ground fault is tripping. When I plug in from a receptical in the coach to tell the inverter to switch to shore power it trips that recepticals ground fault. So to make a long story short. I have two ground faults tripping at the same time. Neutral is not bonded to ground.
I plan on tapping a different receptical ( without GF )

I can not find a simple small box with one breaker no GF anywhere. The one I am using is designed for a hot tub or something.

Any help on this problem would be appreciated.

Got it figured out. It was necessary to disconnect the white pigtail in the new panel. guess it was for 240 volts. Test says everythng is cool. Thanks for anyone thinking about it.
