My 2017 R-pod 178 is tripping my GFCI breaker at my house.  When I did a breaker by breaker test on the rpod to see which one was tripping the GFCI, I determined that it was the 15 amp converter breaker.  
To try and trouble shoot the problem I've
- upgraded to a heavy duty extension cord (10 gauge)
- charged one of the Batteries

any thoughts??

I had the same problem, then discovered the converter had gone bad.  I replaced the converter.  I also ended up replacing the GFI as well since it started tripping for no apparent reason.  Now the new GFI is working fine but I have to say I've not plugged our Pod into that circuit, instead using a 30 amp RV circuit I put on the side of my garage.  "One of these days" I'll get around to testing our Pod on the GFI.  I did check the ground and polarity with one of those little testers you plug into any AC circuit and it shows all is well.
