Interesting thing, though.
Right you are Pete - it seldom works Dang those GFI's
I have gotten around it by using the dog bone 30-50 into the coach and running a separate Edison extension cord to the Xantrex inverter charger alone. Still have to manage current draw but definitely less critical. Of course thy neighbor's pedestal is another option.
