2013 Phaeton GFI plug trips

GFI plug in rear bathroom trips in rainy weather. Changed plug and still trips when weather is rainy.

How many wires were connected to the outlet that you replaced? Any outlets that are fed from that outlet will be protected from that first GFCI outlet and will trip if any outlet down the line has a fault. I suspect you have an outside outlet that may be getting wet which would trip that outlet if on same circuit. My TT has an outside outlet that is wired to the bathroom GFCI.

As mentioned, the one with the test button controls others down the line.

Push the test button and then start checking for other outlets not working, outside or in compartments that can get wet. They may be getting water in them.

Also saw a post where under their bed wires were damaged from BR slide doing some damage to wires. Worth taking a look.
