    Hi Mark,
    I am hoping you can steer me in the right direction. I recently returned from a camping trip and knowing that it would be a day or two before I could empty the refrigerator, I plugged my travel trailer into a GFI on the exterior of the house. I then went to confirm that the refrigerator automatically switched from LP to AC. It did not. I then noticed that the load meter that I keep plugged into the kitchen (GFI) outlet was not reading anything. Attempts to reset that outlet were unsuccessful. I went to the house outlet and discovered that it had tripped also. I ran the extension cord to another outlet (without GFI) and returned to the trailer to reset that GFI and found that it will not reset. I have checked all of the outlets that are on that circuit (2 exterior, kitchen, bathroom and refrigerator) all of them seem to be OK. I made sure all of the connections are good and have replaced the GFI outlet on the outside chance that it has gone bad. I am stumped. Any suggestions?
