It does not matter if you are on your own pole... a surge guard is one of the best investments you can make in RVing.. if lightening strikes the line it will fry everything in your RV.. and if there is a problem on the line with under or over voltage you are protected.. the only time I plug in the RV is at home and I have a hardwired unit.. cheap insurance...

You are correct, it does not matter where you are plugged up to. And you're also correct about cheap insurance, I've just never had one.

Our 2017 Jay Flight 28 RBDS is doing the same thing. The GFI for the outside fridge keeps tripping (which is also connected to a few inside ones). It happens at random times and seems to be an intermittent issue.

We have a list of other issues for our dealer to look at under warranty and this problem is on it. Hopefully just replacing the GFI outlet takes care of it and that it's not a bigger issue.

Me thinks they have installed a batch of bad outlets.

I spoke to StaMic006 through text just a bit ago, and he said his was tripping even without the fridge plugged in. Sounds like bad outlets but I'm no electrician.

GFI's do go bad, four to six yrs is pretty common life span.

Mine has also been tripping at random times on my 355MBQS. I thought it was the kids at first pushing the trip button on the GFI but has done it a few times with them not being around.

Once again, makes me think they got a bad batch of outlets.
