Beautiful drive, don't pass it up.  There are a couple of tight villages that you will need to ease thru, the rest is good but curvy road, my favorite kind.  Google for some YouTube videos.

General Discussion / Re: Need advice about a GFCI outlet

I'll reiterate that each outlet has it's own 3 wire strand and breaker. So this outlet comes from the breaker panel, down the conduit into the ground, 150 feet underground, and the up through the conduit to the outlet itself. The thought had occurred to me that an animal may have chewed on it but they would have to get through the outer coating, plus the inner individual wire coating, and the depth is somewhere between 2 1/2 to 3 feet deep, as far as the blade of the ditch witch.

I would try replacing the breaker for the circuit thatís tripping. Donít go buy a new breaker, just disconnect a current circuit and attach the circuit that giving you trouble with the GFCI. Make sure you have the GFCI installed first. Swap the wire on the breaker and see if the GFCI holds. If it doesnít, then most likely water got to the wire itself, somewhere between your breaker box and where the wire goes into itís box. Also donít have any load attached after the GFCI. Have just the home run attached to the GFCI. See if it holds. If that holds, then the problem is between the GFCI and the load itís protecting. Does it matter what you plug into it? Sounds like it just trips on its own.

Me thinks you may be looking at the wrong end of that mule for answers...

Check the coil temps on the back of the unit. while you are there, make sure no insulation has fallen blocking the path to the top vent. If you can see the little cooling fans up near the top see if they are working.

You may benefit from a cooling fan mod. it made all the difference in mine when I did it . kept ice cream hard!

Just a search for norcld mod and you will find some good info.
I've already gone north, had no problem. Reversing course arrive LV Sat evening, leaving Sun morning

Bad cable won't affect a GFCI outlet unless it's hooked up to the load side of the receptacle. If I understand the circuit, it goes from the panel around the yard and feeds several outlets in their own boxes. If each outlet is connected as a stand alone device then it's possible that the load side sticker is wet or the ground wire might be touching the neutral screws on the device. Bad feeder cable won't trip the device, only a bad load cable can do that. Don't feed through to the next GFCI on the circuit as it's redundant protection.
Also, buy a special weather resistant GFCIs to use in those boxes as required by the NEC. Indoor rated will go bad from the moisture in the box.

We used the heavy duty command strips.  They are good for around 16 lbs., and we used two on each picture.  However, we put up mostly 5x7 pictures in "frameless" frames (really light).  We hung one 8x10 litho that was matted and framed in a light wood frame.  Everything has been hanging for around 6 months of us driving around the country without a mishap.
I'm sorry I missed this message before and wonder if you've already made the trip north from KOA.  Your planned route would take you right through the Spaghetti Bowl (I-15-US95-US93 merge).  If you've not done the trip yet, I recommend surface streets such as Nellis Blvd. or Pecos to meet US93 farther north.  Today, for example, I-15 is closed for a couple of miles between Spring Mountain and Sahara so everyone is taking alternate routes.  The farther you can be east of the Spaghetti Bowl, the better!  Safe travels!
