Charging House Battery from 120V

I recently bought a 2015 Seneca HJ. This is my first motor home exprience and have a question for Seneca owners.
I connected my 50A cable with 120V adapter into my house 120V 15A GFI outlet and periodically it would trip the GFI. I wondering if I need a 20A or larger dedicated 120V outlet for my motor home or not?
It didn't seem to be charging that well or at least when I checked the battery voltage it was running around 12.5.
Any recommendations?

A 15A GFI outlet is perfectly adequate for a MH. You just have to be judicious about what you turn on in the MH. If the grounding fault is tripping on the GFI breaker, that indicates a problem of a different sort. That indicates a current leak from the AC hot side to ground somewhere in the MH or the GFI breaker is defective. If possible hook the MH up to a non GFI outlet or another GFI to verify that everything works OK.
