This has been code since the late 1970s, so if you find one that isn't GFCI it was likely replaced by someone or the inspector missed it. A GFCI will by it's function will absolutely not work on a shared neutral. It measures the current on both the hot and neutral and if it senses more than 5ma difference between the 2 it assumes it is leakage and trips. In this case both outlets are sharing a neutral to the coach.
I'm aware. Just stating it is unlikely to work since the GFCI will trip.
IOW, don't waste your money on one.

I would strongly advise you also plug in your EMS. If something is wrong (if anything is wrong), the EMS will shut down first. If, with the EMS, you don't have power, I'd use only 1 of those 30 amps and use power management in the trailer.
Who you are right now is a sum total off all you use to be.
