You are not using any kind of other extension cord between the trailers power cord and any of the three outlets in your garage?

No other cords just power cord from camper to receptacle.

GFCI to GFCI is "unreliable" not "won't work."

My electrician buddy says that gfci outlets are not to be used for motor type( larger I believe he meant) appliances - ie compressors, chopsaws, welders etc. They are not reliable because of the starting of the motor-it will trip them sometimes. Had it happen on one of my compressor outlets and it would trip the breaker.
Just stating what I was told.
