GFCI outlet keeps tripping

I have a gfi outlet in my garage that keeps tripping , it will reset and last a day roughly. What I know that is on this gfi is 3 outside outlets, and 1 outlet in basement. Nothing is plugged into any of these things when it trips. I did have a freezer plugged into the one downstairs , and it ran fine for about a week before I noticed it was tripped. The house is about 4.5 years old. Does my gfi outlet need replaced ?

You need to open the outside receptacles and look for moisture.

While you are checking make sure all the exterior receptacles have approved weather proof boxes and code bubble covers. Otherwise you will have found your problem x3.
