I have a 2010 CF32BL, love the camper but seem to be having power issues and triping breakers. Anyone had this problems mostly the 30/20 breaker? Having to run the HW and fridge on gas alot. Friendly camper recently told me he was having the same issues, it was fixed by taking the air off the 30/20 and putting on a single 20amp. Would appreciate any advice

Your friend was right, I did this on our camper. The breaker gets to hot and the heat makes the breaker trip. You heed a square D 20 amp breaker.

I have had a few issues popping breakers as you described how did you add the breaker and do you have a picture of the finished product? I was thinking about changing the panel and using a pony panel in its place but after looking at the amout of wire considering the 120 voly and 12 volt my plan changed.

In my panel I had room to add more breakers, so I did took very little time

Here's the link to the post in which this was discussed and the breaker that I used. You should have at least 1 open slot if not 2 in your current panel, just break out the plastic covers below the breakers.

What happens is the more often the breaker trips the weaker the spring gets, then it trips easier.

Need ideas again, i put the AC on a seperate breaker this weekend, and it seems to be working, only thing is i put a amp meter on it and with the AC running, refridge, i turned the microwave on and was drawing 38 amps, and tripped it off when i switched the waterheater on. I'm think my camper should be a 50amp not 30amp. What should i do?
