sounds like you need a new fixer. turn breakers off one at a time while trying to reset gfi each time. when you get a reset you have found the bad circuit.

the dealer that sold it to us and another dealer. the receptor will not turn back on to do what you said they have replaced it 4 times already. it has to be after the gfi that is causing the problem

GFIs usually feed more than one receptacle, so it could be a problem at one of those other receptacles or a miswired GFI.

Go in and unplug everything including the TVs and anything else pluged in. Then push the gfi button and see if it still trips. If not one by one plug the things back in and see where the short is. Otherwise, you have a short somewhere making the gfi trip.

To the tire info question. Go to the "NEW' button on top and start your own tread. You will get more responses. s/Toby

Also make sure refridgerator is unplugged. I think it is on the circuit with the GFI, it and maybe the microwave. Unplugging all should get the plugs to work with a light bulb and then plug in the other items one at a time to find out what is the source of the current draw.

Is it a GFI breaker or is it a receptacle? Does it work for a while then trip, or has it never worked?

If replacing the GFI outlets doesn't work, then there is likely a wiring fault somewhere in the unit causing slight current leakage to ground. (GFIs operate on the priciple that if there is a 5 milliamp difference betwen hot and return conductors, then a ground fault (leakage) exists and the outlet cuts off supply). Possible causes are fasteners thru a supply conductor, dust or spider webs in electrical boxes causing leakage, or damaged wire insulation contacting a ground. Hard (time consuming) to locate and often humidity related as dampness improves the conductivity of faults particularly dust/spider webs.

Good luck in your efforts, bob

If the breaker is tripped the groundfault will not reset.

baj, welcome to irv2.
Every other outlet has been checked if you have a outlet on exterior wall of coach check and make sure its not full of water or moisture.
Doesn't take much to trip GFI.
