Be careful to read the fine print on the inline gfci devices. They are meant to add ground fault detection and interruption to a circuit that already has a circuit breaker, so usually don’t detect overcurrent conditions, which is what we want here.

The Pod has a L5-30 receptacle, so I can't see any reason why an inline GFCI/breaker wouldn't work without an adapter when plugged directly into the Pod and then the normal power cable plugged into it.

offgrid makes a good point though.
