My first 3, 5ers I never had an issue, #4 tripped the GFI the first time at the house. Called the dealer and they sent me another convertor/charger, new unit acted the same, consulted with the factory, they said it was normal. Current coach trips GFIs.
Stopped at a friend's place in Montana, said I needed to run the cord into the garage; he said" no you don't; this has worked on every RV , I've owned. " He manually tripped the GFI with the test button , plugged in my cord adaptor and re-set with the cord in.
Three days on that outlet and it never tripped.
Different coaches, possible slight wiring or parts suppliers differences. But if you ask around, most units trip a GFI.
