Joe,

Yes, in previous posts I mentioned that I even ran a Commerical air compressor similar to the ones used at gas station (well, they used to use them) 😃 without a problem.

I ordered a new tester from the link you sent. It should be arriving tonight. I'll keep you in the loop with the results.

John

This should be downstream the trailer main breaker, but I once had an issue with my house breaker popping when plugging in the extension cord. The problem proved to be a burned out water heater AC element. I had left it on when draining the heater.

John,
Sounds like it might be necessary to get into the breaker panel and take some readings on the individual circuits at this point. Obviously with power disconnected and breakers open, checking wiring on each individual breaker to figure out the bad circuit. Or open all breakers, connect trailer to gfci, close 30a breaker and leave closes. Then close and open each breaker one by one to find which breaker trips the gfci. Then figure out what is on that circuit.

Joe,

I received the GFCI Tester. According to the tester the outlets inside the Airstream are all fine as is the GFCI outlet in the garage. When plugging the Airstream into the GFCI outlet it immediately trips just as before. Could it be the GFCI?

On a separate note, I had an electrician install a 30 amp RV box so I could run the air conditioner from time to time as well as other circuits inside the Airstream. All went well. It now seems the only problem I'm experiencing is using the GFCI. I'm torn between replacing it, since I don't believe replacing it will eliminate the problem, and pulling out the shore input socket and checking for proper neutral. Thoughts?

That's interesting as well as a good reminder. Thanks.

John

If the tester says the outlets are ok then you don't have a flipped neutral.

Start the one breaker at a time method to figure out which branch circuit the issue is on. Then figure out what's on that circuit. Then we need to figure out what on that circuit could be bad.
