Question about Hammering
It sounds like there is a direct short on the circuit. Before going any further, check other outlets on this circuit and make sure they do not have anything plugged in that is not expected and does not work. Check OUTSIDE your home, basement, garage, etc. as these locations require GFI protection - and may be fed from the bathroom outlet. After removing devices that are plugged into the circuit, attempt a reset of the breaker once more.
It is not likely that the circuit breaker has failed (but is a possibility). The outlet in the bathroom is probably a GFI type. You can determine this if it has "Test" and "Reset" buttons on it. You should be able to press the Reset button in fully even with power off. After resetting, you can attempt the resetting the circuit breaker as you have described above. If it stays on, try pressing the "Test" button on the outlet. Doing so should trip power to the outlet (and causing the "Reset" button to pop out) but leave the circuit breaker "On". If the breaker also trips, the GFI outlet is suspect and might need to be replaced.
At this point, a qualified electrician should be consulted to locate and clear the wiring fault.

Hi, remove the electric control panel & check the wiring as sometimes we have seen the wires coming off the voltage change over switches.
Also some of these units you can check the connections in the rear of the alternator & if it has brushes that they are not stuck.
Another problem we have had is the trip switches have went faulty but still switch operates ok, they need to be checked with a probe type tester for conductivety.

If it's still under warranty take it back to the retailer and tell them it quit working - don't offer any other information.
If you must fix the E/G yourself - On the generator there's a cover on the back; take the cover off so that the back of the windings are exposed. You should see 4 to 6 diodes mounted to the rotor and stator...those diodes are most likely burned out because of temperature failure, due to overload. You have to take them out to isolate them...they should read .6 Ohms one way; reverse the leads and they slhould read about 1.2 Ohms. If there shorted you'll read 0 Ohms and open infinety.
Anyway, replace those diodes and you should re-establish your field winding voltage which develops you A/C output.

The meter at the pole should have a main breaker. At that point the neutral (white wire) will be bonded to the ground and connected to one or more ground rods. from the meter to your mobile home will be an equipment ground that should not be bonded to the neutral in the panel inside your home. The equipment ground from you panel going to the frame is bonding the frame of your home to the equipment ground.
Your large loads will be your Range, Clothes Dryer, Heat, Hot water. A good indicator will be your meter spinning rapidly (the horizontal disc) during heavy use. Turn off all circuits in the home and check that the meter is not spinning. If it is then there is another load other than your home on the service.

It sounds as if the upstairs bathroom outlet and the outdoor outlet are on the same circuit. There's a very good chance that these are GFI or "ground fault interrupter" type outlets, as these locations (and others) have required this type of protection for over 30 years. It was a common practice to run a circuit from the panel to one of these locations (or another) and then run from here to the next outlet and then on to the next. Since the GFI outlet could be purchased for around $10 instead of $30 for a GFI breaker, electricians would install outlets instead - both offered the same protection. A "regular" breaker would supply power to this circuit - but the very first outlet would get a GFI type outlet. It would be wired to the LINE terminals and the cable that feeds the rest of the outlets on this circuit would be connected to the LOAD terminals. If there was a ground fault condition, this GFI outlet would trip, but the circuit breaker would remain on. You would locate and RESET the tripped GFI outlet to restore power. The only time the circuit breaker would trip is if the circuit was overloaded. Overloads would NOT cause the GFI outlet to trip.
Now that you understand how it was typically wired years ago (and still a lot of times today), you should check all the outlets outside your home, in bathrooms, basements, garages, and inside your home next to doorways that lead directly to grade of your lawn or deck. These are required places for GFI protection. Press the RESET on any tripped GFI outlet to restore power. If the outlet will not RESET, there is a condition where the hot wire (black, red or blue insulated wire) is in contact with ground, or a device or appliance connected to the circuit has a problem. Unplug anything connected to the circuit and attempt to RESET again. If still unable to reset, open the outdoor outlet again and carefully pull it out and away from the box. Inspected for damaged or crushed insulation and repair / tape as needed. Before reinstalling, try to reset again. If it holds, trip the GFI by pressing TEST button. The RESET button should pop out. Reinstall the outlet and make sure the wires are not crushed or cut. Press the RESET button again. If it trips, you will have to remove the outlet again and take more precautions against damage to the insulation. it is also possible that the GFI outlet itself has failed, in which case it should be replaced.
GFI circuit breakers and outlets are supposed to be tested monthly by simply pressing the TEST button and then the RESET button. Replace any GFI device that does not test correctly if wiring and devices / appliances connected are OK.
I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.
