A problem somewhere. A standard 50 AMP RV pedestal is wired with 2 120 volt hot legs out of phase so if you measure across the 2 hot legs then you see 240 VAC. Most 50 AMP RVs use this as two 120 VAC legs and so 240 VAC though available inside the coach is not used. Any standard appliance inside your motorhome and plugged into an outlet should only see 120 VAC power.
There is possibility that the power at the pedestal is out of spec. Generally speaking if the VAC is higher than about 132 volts then damage to appliances may occur.
