Gfci issue

I have a 2017 rock wood premier pop up. I plugged in my shoreline and I am not getting power to the camper. The power source is good, there is power in the shoreline but the light is not lighting up and there is not power outside the battery power inside the camper. There is a gfci outlet between the shoreline and the power inverter. All the breakers are intact. Is my gfci bad?

I had a similar problem once & also intermittently. Sometimes if you plug into a GFCI circuit for shore power source, it will trip the GFCI circuit in the trailer hence, no power in the trailer. Try plugging into a non-GFCI power source then reset the GFCI in the trailer.

Some GFCI's will not tolerate having two in series. Try a shore power source with no GFCI.

Gfci

Thanks for the tip. I will try that tomorrow. They used very cheap clampshell style outlets. Might try relaxing them but wire feed is very short. Will advise if your suggestion works.
