We have a brand new Sunset Trails Reserve 32BH and everytime I go to make coffee with our Keurig it pops the breaker. It is a 15 amp breaker and the only other things usually on in the camper are lights and the fireplace. I am wondering if when the fireplace is running and the coffee maker kicks on if it exceeds that 15 amps. Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Chris

PS. where can we get bunk rails so our son doesn't fall out of the bunk again.

Have you tried making coffee without the fireplace on to see if it still trips? If you can then there is your answer.

If the receptacle you are using for the coffee maker is on the same outlet as the fire place, you exceeding the 15 amp when they are both in use at the same time.

Standard hide-a-way bedrails may do the trick and they don't cost a lot of money. If you need to secure rods that go under the mattress most likely "C"pipe clamps screwed to the platform will work. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Regalo-Hide-Away-Extra-Long-Bed-Rail/7767660

When we have the fireplace on and start the Keurig the breaker blows. Like me, you are going to have to make the coffee then turn the fireplace on then sit and enjoy your coffee.

Forgot to mention the Keurig is plugged into the outlet by the stove in our unit. If I move it then it is okay.

Can you clarify, is it tripping the individual circuit or the 30 amp main?

When it pops it is on the plug in outside. Need to reset the breaker out there.

So, is it tripping the GFCI receptacle, or the circuit breaker in the panel?

If its tripping the breaker outside then your overloading the whole circuit. It should trip the individual circuit first. If not at least the 30 amp main inside. I would be curious to see how many amps its drawing.
Last question if its tripping at the source, do you have it plugged into a 30 amp circuit?

It is the 15 amp breaker in the camper and it is probably because of the fireplace being on at the same time. Thanks for all the replies.

We had the same problem when running a space heater and coffee pot on the same circuit. We had room in our fuse box and put in another 20amp circuit, where we can run the heater and coffee pot on separate circuits at the same time.

Always remember breaker spaces In a panel are like blank checks In a check book. You might not have enough in the bank to cash them. Always check how many amps your adding to the system. You do not want to take your main breaker to its limit. 80% for a continuous load, so for a 30 amp circuit it's 24 amps. Load shedding is the best idea, shut something off while using the coffee pot.
