Tripping GFI ACE 29.4

The GFI on the bathroom electrical outlet which also serves the kitchen outlet keeps tripping even when nothing is plugged in on my 2017 Thor ACE 29.4. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It's one of 3 things:
The GFCI Receptacle itself is bad
There's a fault in one of the receptacles downstream of the GFCI (i,e., water in the outside receptacle)
or there's a fault wit the wiring downstream of the GFCI

Did you see the other recent thread on the bathroom GFI tripping?

The GFI outlet is controlling 4 or 5 downstream outlets. Any outlet within 6 ' of a water supply. Including outside and any outlet in a ground-level storage area.

If you are plugged into a GFI controlled circuit you may need to turn off the GFI circuit in the RV. Sometimes 2 GFI's in series do not play nice.
