Question Help trip gfci breaker

All has anyone ever had an issue with the ground fault breaker? I have a 2016 FC30 bunk. Circuit 6 is a gfci breaker and is tripping occasionally three or four times a day and the converter is on this curcuit. I noticed that the fan on the converted is not running and the light on the battery disconnect never goes off in either store or use position. Nothing else is running on that curcuit except for the refrigerator. Any thoughts?

Hi

If the breaker is repeatedly tripping, you need to get the situation looked into. The setup in the AS is close enough to residential wiring that a local electrician is the guy to see.

Verify if the outside outlet is on the same circuit many times the receptacle gets moisture in it.

I have had to dry mine out with blow-drier set on low.

Hi

Silicone based spray lube is a good idea on the outside outlets. Do it with the power off ...

Seems as though your fan should definitely be running. My "store/use" light stays on when I'm plugged into shore power. -John
