Electrical problem Fleetwood 39L

I have a 2004 Fleetwood Discovery. The two outlets for outside use keep triping GFI in bed room. I have checked the condition of the outlets see no problem. Does anyone know of any connection point beside the outlets? THX

Patio outlets are exposed to morning dew. And small openings in the caulking allow it inside.

Try removing the duplex outlet and inspect the wiring. When mine failed, the backside had crumbled from weather/moisture and it wasn't visible. Shorted out occasionally, blowing the GFI.

outlets

Outlets are in the basements. Removed both and look good.

Just thinking. GFI's go bad too.

Might the neutral and ground be reversed on one of the outlets? That would cause an upstream GFCI to trip as soon as anything is plugged in (because that completes the circuit to ground instead of neutral).

GO figure

Found the engine warmer, on the GFI circuit. With switch off everthing works fine. Now I will have to see what is wrong with warmer. Thx for the help.
