Only way we have any power is with generator. Please help with any info trailer has been in shop for 3 weeks
It is possible that your converter is powered by your GFI circuit. If that is the case, and your batteries will not hold a charge, it's possible the wire from the converter to your batteries is shorted.
It is also possible that you have a DC circuit shorted. When you plug the trailer in the short-circuit could be causing an excessive load on the GFI circuit causing it to trip.
Is it the GFI plug that is tripping or is it the circuit breaker for that circuit? If it is a plug which one? That might help us to narrow it down.
