block heater need fix tonight!
So my 05 block heater is tripping the GFCI outlets in my garage (first time for two years). I did some research to test my B.H. plug, got 15 OHMS on my meter, so that says GOOD! I went and bought the correct extension cord (12G/15Amps/25 ft) and it's STILL tripping the darn plugs.
I have 3 outlets in garage and one on my porch tied into a 20 amp breaker w/ one plug being GFCI, and one GFCI as a stand alone (not sure where it's tied into). It trips both of them after about 5 seconds of being plugged in after a long rest, and immediately after hitting the reset button each time.
Any help? I'd really love to have this fixed tonight if possible!
