Block heater tripping GFCI?
My first winter in cold weather ... as it got down below freezing, I was using a timer to have the block heater go on a few hours before morning. Its been working fine, cold starts not a problem. Tonight, first real storm with snow and sleet. When the timer kicked on, the GFCI on a connected outlet would trip. Eventually, I traced it to the plug on the truck. As soon as I plugged it in, the GFCI would trip. Is this typical? It has been working well until just tonight.
