Welcome to the forum

A bit more information would help. Which GFI? The one in the trailer? Are you plugged into shore power or gen? Any and all details will help in giving you a more informed answer.

First of all... to the Forum...

I'm not an electrical tech nor an expert on your Rig...but I'd assume that somewhere your GFI is somehow close to or actually finding a ground from close by....poor installation, or bad receptacle, but somewhere there is a hot lead finding ground either directly or indirectly...

Kind of vague info to run with...

This might help you narrow down any issues with that GFI system. http://noshockzone.org/rv-electrical...oubleshooting/

A lot more information would be helpful for us and you alike; how old is the trailer? Could the plug be OLD and just become weak? If it just trips "easily" I would put a new one in and see if that doesn't fix it before I tried to tear the trailer apart.
