If you took a extension cord and plugged it into a outlet , nothing bad can happen , if you inserted a bobby pins leg into the 2 slots on the female end of the cord , a direct short willexist and blow the breaker instantly. And if you lumped the hot leg to the ground slot a short to ground does the same thing, you will need a load in any circuit to keep it from being a direct short L1 to L2, I would open the breakers on the coach amd 1 by 1 close then until the circuits found that is the issue, after that try searching the outlets and loads in the circuit for any continuity to ground or a direct short condition. do you have a transformer for the 12 v lighting and batt chargers?

The breaker on my RV a/c blows after three minutes. any suggestions on what to look at. it is about 115-120 degrees outside. the RV is a 30 amp system.

First thing to check is how much voltage your actually getting to the unit. Fan comes on good, then you hear compressor shortly after is that correct, then run for 3 minutes then kicks breaker out, is that correct?. Have you tried shutting everything else off in trailer temporarily to see if it will stay going longer? When was the last time unit had a good service cleaning as in evaporator & condensor coils & fins?

Portable generator pops breaker when temp is over 75 degrees

I take it you have RV plugged into generator. Hopefully direct with no extension cords. Are you using a 30 to 15 amp adapter to plug into generator? What is the rating of the breaker on the generator that keeps tripping, suspect it's only 15 amp?

Ac blowing breaker

The unit will draw more current when hot. Check rating of the breaker against the rating recommended by the manufacturer.

Rv electrical question

By the main breaker in the camper, do you mean the main 24 or 12 volt breaker, or the incoming 120vac breaker? Is it tripping the breaker in the camper, or the house? If it is tripping the breaker inside, i would look for maybe water damage, rusty components, maybe have an electrician come look at it, not worth going out away from home, and that problem ruining your vacation! Does this unit have a generator set? Try disconnecting the generator too. Hope that helps!
