GFCI Tripping - 2015 Phaeton AH

Rained yesterday. Today, the GFCI breaker keeps failing. Removed all plug ins along kitchen side and bathroom (from all the GFCI labelled receptacles), replaced GFCI breaker, checked AC plugs in storage area, nothing is wet. How do I further isolate ground tripping source? How can I get a wiring diagram for this GFCI circuit? Thanks!

Welcome to iRV2 .

First post I see.
Sorry you're here with problems .
Is your fridge on the GFIC protected circuit?
Some years of Norcold fridges would trip GFICs when the ice maker needed defrosting.
Or in your case the problem started with a rain storm , maybe enough water got through the lower fridge vent to start the issue.

I actually have a residential fridge which is not on the GFCI circuit. I assume that the only outlets on the GFCI are along the dining and kitchen side of the RV and the bathroom sink area (which may even be a separate GFCI). This is why I am going into Tiffin Service tomorrow and request the wiring diagrams. Thanks

Did the replacement of the GFCI fix your problem?

I would be very surprised if you got a wiring diagram for anything. Tiffin doesn't normally publish them.
