Sorry if this has been discussed already but has anyone used an arc fault tester that finds the arc fault. We have a house that keeps tripping but we cant find the problem even after taking all the devices out.

Any feedback from the customer on what they are doing when the breaker trips? Inductive loads will false trip most AFCI breakers. Things like vacuum cleaners, space heaters, etc, will cause you issues. If it is not the load they are using, then I would be meggering the wiring.
