AC issues this morning

Hello,
Weíre camped out in the Keys today. Itís been raining all last night and this morning. Electrical was fine till now. The GFCI tripped with nothing plugged in. I reset, it tripped. The inverter has not tripped. Iím wondering if the exterior AC plugs could be the issue. I canít troubleshoot anything else. I turned off the water heater. Same thing happened. Weíre plugged into 30 amp. Everything else is working except for AC plugs. Could the exterior AC plugs be tripping the GFCI with all this rain?

And yes, this rig is leaking like a colander around the slideouts.

And try a different power pedastal.
And try your generator to see what it thinks about your internal wiring.

Thank you. As you were replying the rain stopped and I opened up the receptacle. Wet like a Navy SEAL. Dried it out, used clear window silicone to seal it up and put it back together. Voila! Electrical back on line. Nice to know they only use a foam insert to “seal” it from the elements.
