View Full Version : GFCI problems
11-30-2008, 05:35 PM
I am not sure what is causing it, but I can run a show completely through, without problems, but sometime between the end of the show on one day, and the beginning of them the next day, one of the GFCI's trips. After the show is over for the day, and all the lights are off, this is when it trips, because the next day, I have to reset it, to run the next show. They are wired in a series, and it is the first one in the series, and when it trips, obviously the other 3 outlets in that series also trip. They are protected fairly well from the weather, so I don't think that is causing it, and I don't think any moisture with lights would be causing it, because there is no power to any lights when it happens. Any ideas?

Check your extension cords at the plug connections, if you are hooked up that way.
Also, check your amp draw for that circuit. when my house was built, the electrical
for GFCI was laid out that way. I removed the plug and installed a GFCI breaker
to cover the circuit. Now, back to the ext. cords. It doesn't take too much moisture
to trip a GFCI. Could be that after the show, in the wee hours of the morning, you're
getting condensation in the plug connections. Just a thought. I live way down south,
and we have our own little beasts. Not shure about the snow and climate up there.
