I am trying to troubleshoot an issue. All outlets downstream from my GFCI will not work when I plug anything in. with my DMM I pulled the GFCI from the wall and measured voltage into the GFCI from Hot to Ground = 120 Neutral to ground = .5 Neutral to hot 120. Out from the GFCI Hot to Ground = 120 Neutral to ground = .5 Neutral to hot 120. I go to the next outlet and I get Hot to ground 120. Neutral to ground 1.5 Hot to Neutral 112v. any ideas on how to resolve? When I trip the GFCI all reading on the outlet goes to almost 0 as would be expected. It is important to note I have replace the outlet not working to no avail. I get the same readings without an outlet attached

Loose neutral on either the GFCI, the socket under test, or an intermediate socket.

    Yep, classic loose or high resistance neutral connection somewhere.
