Two and a half at sea in my four years. I probably should have stayed in, wish I had that check coming in each month now.
Update on the ground fault gremlin: Yesterday I went back to revisit the issue. I put the original GFCI receptacle back in with just the line connected. No problem. Hooked up the load lines, no problem. The outside receptacle is on a different circuit, neutral might be tied in, but it looks inside. No water leaks anywhere.
The only change is that I've removed and reinstalled two of the receptacles on the circuit. So maybe it was a ground wire touching a hot or neutral wire and the insulation breaking down a bit. So it's "solved" for now.
