Al lights, microwave,everything else works. This GFCI breaker is next to my AC breaker. The AC starts ang runs for about 10 minutes then the GFCI trips. This GFCI only affects the AC.

Gfci breaker should have nothing to do with a/c unless it's wired or labeled wrong.

When Gfci breaker trips do any of the Gfci outlets work

Ill have to check that out but the AC still cuts out also. Someone at the camp ground suggested that the AC may be low on Feron anf has to pull hard to get the compressor started...but I cant see why that would kick off the GFCI.
