I'm new here as i found this site googling my problem hoping to stumble onto something. If this is in the wrong thread please move accordingly.

I have 6 pot lights the keep tripping a gfi outlet..

I am hooking these up to a temp panel as the panel is not ready to go yet. The lights are controlled by encilium lighting control. I have bypassed the lighting control with all the same problems.

There is no short in the cct. So I have isolated the first 3 lights to break the group in half. I unplug the disconnect in their jb and the cct is fine. As soon as I put 1 load on (doesn't matter which one) it trips the gfi. I want to tie the cab tire into the temp panel but that would require a shutdown as we have a zero tolerance on live work.

I have also tried multiple gfi outlets. Don't really know what to try again. The only thing I can think of is the neutrals at the lighting control or the gfi but I also have another 100 lights working off of a gfi with the same system.

Any feedback would be great.

Because were still in construction and that's all there is to use right now or we have to shutdown the temp panel. I don't think the gfi is the problem as I have other lights hooked up the same way right now.
