GFI Breaker

I have a 2007 Safari SE 25 FB. The GFI breaker in the panel under one of the twin beds seems to trip on a fairly regular basis. It controls the outlets and the refrig in the back/kithen living area of the trailer. Sometimes it will reset easily and other times it won't. Does anyone have experience with this. What might be causing it to trip repeatedl? Does it need a new breaker? Can i just remove the panel cover, pull the old breaker out and snap a new one in or is there more to it than that? Thanks.

Check for moisture and dust in the breaker box and all the outlets. I believe your trailer should have an outside outlet, which would also be on the GFCI circuit. That is a frequent source of nuisance trips. Compressed air helps blow out any dust and cobwebs.

GFCI may be doing you a favor!!! Shut off power, Inspect outlets and dry well...canned air works best...but remember, electricity CAN flow over gas jet...remember, no power!!

Is AS outside or in covered shelter?

I removed my external outlet and replaced to fix our "intermittent" issue.

Remember, power off!

It's also possible that it is the breaker itself that's going bad. They're easy to replace.
