Re: Shore GFCI trips when plugging in boat

Actually I don't think it is a "moot point" unless you can determine it was in fact the land plug that was at fault. Electrical is the number one cause of boat fires, and if I had to guess chargers are one of the top causes if not the top cause. Gilfstar's are nice boats, but quite old now. If the electric has not been redone top to bottom by now then it is time to start thinking about doing it. Your not too far from Maine sail, perhaps he could do the rewire for you, as he seems to do an incredible job.
