Popping gfi at the house with my new XL hooked up

So I wanted to plug the rv in at the house on 15amp. With the master switch turned off or on it will pop the gfi at the house. Do I need to do something inside the rv to just plug it into the house? It worked before we left the dealership. It was on 50 there. Any suggestions?

Don't plug the cord into a GFI outlet. They often don't play well with each other. Use a non-GFI outlet.

Thanks for the response. That didn’t solve it. I all tried shutting off all the breakers in the couch and it still pops the breaker in the house

I used a GFCI plug for years without problems. Usually occurs when wires are reversed in home made extension cord or other devices or amperage draw exceeds safety rating of GFCI.

You need to change the incoming voltage to 15A in the multiplex screen. It will think it is plugged into 50 unless you tell it otherwise.

If this is the correct screen I tried that. No change. Let me know

Some people forget and leave their water heater on electric and the breaker trips because of over current.

Correct, but the energy management system in the multiplex should correct for that.

If you in fact turned off all the breakers including the main then you have a problem between the breaker box and the shore power. Current can't flow thru a turned off breaker. Get a volt meter and start at the Ped and work you way the RV main breaker. In plug the cord from the RV and plug back into the house with the RV end laying on the ground. Tell us what happens. If it does not trip then your problem is between the outside cord connection and the main breaker panel. The next place to look would be the outlet in the side of the RV and the transfer switch. Then the transfer switch to the breaker panel.
