Another option would be, to install a GFI breaker at the panel, and use regular outlets.
As far as your GFI outlet is concerned, it should work, provided that "line" and "load" are wired correctly. If it doesn't, either you have a bad "line" wire, a bad GFI receptacle (actually quite commmon), or a short in the "load" wire (assuming other receps pigtail from that GFI). Or your inverter is cooked...
I would:1)check line voltage at inverter, then voltage at wires at GFI
2)wire nut line and load wires at GFI recep box(provided other receps pigtail from there), engage breaker. If breaker trips, you have a load short.
3)If all of the above is ok, GFI recep is faulty(or, as Steve mentioned not compatible).
