I have a GFI outlet next to my bathroom sink that also controls two outlets on the kitchen counter and one ouside outlet. This past weekend I had no power on any of these outlets. I could reset the GFI outlet, but it would only hold for about a minute before it tripped. Knowing that occasionally GFI outlets get tired, I bought a new one, and it also tripped. After much thought, I remembered that I had towed to the campground in a pouring rain, so thinking that possibly moisture had gotten into the outside outlet, I took a hair dryer and aimed it into the outlet for about 3-4 minutes, and that cured the problem........ Just thought I'd pass this on incase someone else has this problem.

You need to try to find out how it got in and plug the leak.

...and put a new cover and gasket on it. If it's getting into the plug, it's getting into the wall cavity.
