Craig36, who told you about MH not compatible with GFI outlet? In our rented storage the outlet tripped regularly, power share set for 15a. The owner installed a dedicated outlet from the breaker box, no issues. Can you Orr anyone shed light on this? Bill.

Prior the line was GFCI. The GFCI tripped, NOT the breaker. The new outlet was then wired directly from the panel no GFCI. I have had no issues.

A Few frequent culprits are inverters, and water heaters. Any connection or leakage from neutral to ground causes the fault. Heater elements can age snd have some leakage to ground. It doesn't take much to trip a 15A GFCI outlet... I think it is supposed to trip at 5 milliamps.
Someone experienced and with A meter capable of measuring fire yo milliamp level can find & fix the problem.
The same issue is occurring with boats as new marinas and refurbished projects require GFCI protection and the limits are greater than normal 15A outlets but still pretty low.

Ok. Swapped out gfi. Put regular 20 amp outlet in. Turned charger down to 5 amps. No issues. Running fridge. Fantastic fan for air flow and batteries at float. All
Good for now.

Sincere thanks to everyone for input and ideas.

Tom
