Plugging in at home

We are going camping this weekend and I went out to plug the camper in to start up the fridge and when I plugged in the camper to the house outlet ( WHICH IS A GFI ) it trips the GFI everything I try it. But when I plug in anything else it works fine. This is the same outlet we've used for a long time,I even replaced the GFI and it still does it. But, if I plug in the TTYL into a room inside the house everything works just fine,any suggestions ?

You are plugging in one GFCI circuit into another one, generally the two do not play well with one another.

If you have a none GFCI outlet use it.

Lots of time 2 GFI's in the same circuit will cause one of them to trip, usually at the source, your house. If possible while plugged into a different outlet,trip the GFI in your camper. All should be ok now plugged into your house GFI.
