Two GFCIs tripping together

Two gfci switches intermittently trip simultaneously. They are in different rooms. With no unusual load on them. They are the first outlet of their circuit. Could it be power fluctuations? Three other gfci outlets in house aren't affected. Do these wear our? They are both 28 years old.

Welcome to the forums.

Two GFI receptacles ?

They are each on their own circuit...... are you sure of that ?
Each one is setup to to have several receptacles connected to them ?

If the GFI's are 28 years old it wouldn't hurt to change them to the new style.

GFCIs tripping

Definitely individual circuits. One has one outlet and one 2 gang switch after it ; the other has 3 outlets and one 1 gang switch. My guess would be a current fluctuation, maybe I will try newer gfci outlets.

That's somewhat strange circuiting. Are we talking about bathrooms ?
Lights aren't typically connected into GFI circuits.
