Installed a new 20AMP breaker today, to break the A/C away from the WH. After two trips to ACE Hardware it was found that you need the Square D Homeline 20AMP breaker. Cost $4.99 installed in less than 5 mins. Hope this solves the heating tripping issue.

Tomorrow going on the roof to pull the A/C cover and clean out the coils.


On the difficulty scale - 1 beer

Mine were a different make but they still worked. Here's a picture of my changes.

Is it wrong that I didn't relabel mine??? Nice job.. I thought about redoing the other hi amp breakers, but haven't had a problem with those.

I haven't had the problem of the breaker tripping yet (knock on wood). I would like to add another breaker to my panel but can't find a buss bar long enough. I've got an old sparesquare d panel but the buss bar won't adapt to my needs. Is there somewhere someone has found these. I searched the internet and haven't come up with anything yet. These buss bars look like they are specially made for these RV panels.

Nice.. Just did mine a month ago. Got tired of having to reset and wait for the sat.dish to re-search the satellites.

Also tossed on the amp gauge for a while to help the Ms to understand what she can run. . AC 12amps. etc.. With hot water tank on. 23 amps. Or.. AC on and run microwave 25amps..

It was tripping just sitting there watching TV with the AC on. Switched the breaker to separate 30/20 and all is fixed.. HomeDepot

I ended up going to an rv dealer to get another bus for the breaker panel as on mine, they put just enough bus for the breakers there. So, for $10.00 I got one out of a panel they had laying around and I might have to to cut it down to fit. So far, two years and no more annoying "Clicks"

I supposed that there's nothing wrong with not relabelling the bigger breakers as long as they are in the same sequence. In my case, I changed the sequence. I used MS Word to make the label.

Just my $.02 but going up on the roof and checking the ac condenser and the evapourator core to ensure that they are clean will in most cases lower the anperage draw from the AC. Both items run wet and it is amaizing how much crap builds up in them. You can buy a spray on cleaner from any heating AC supply house you spray on and rinse off with pressureized water. Be careful not to bend the cooling fins on either unit,



Good luck.

Great picture. Says a thousand words. Just got the breakers to fix mine. I tripped a circuit last week -- no fun, especially while I was trying to figure out what happened.



thanks everyone.
