Clean coils seee if it makes a difference. all air-conditioners are designed by mfg. to run in a ambient temperture of 95 degrees. after that they lose effiency.

The problem is that when u add up the electrical draw from all of these appliances running full bore, your draw exceeds your available amperage. Now you are doing the math and saying no...... Let me tell you why. It is rare to find a situation where a 100 amp service actually porovides 100 amps. You almost always have voltage dropo. And when you are adding extension cords to the mix the drop is even more. That said, When you are using the AC try to minimize the use of other appliances, especially the microwave which is a big draw too.

SOURCE: Breaker trips on roof top RV A/C
check your breaker is it hot to the touch?
check the wire tightness at the breaker?
remove the circuit breaker and inspect the terminals on the breaker and in the panel and the breaker itself for signs of overheating and discoloration due to the fact
check the connections at the unit itself
check that you have proper voltage to your unit
find the nameplate and look for FLA full load amp draw
is the breaker properly sized for the unit and is the wire size correct for the breaker?
(Check nameplate on unit)
buy a clamp on amp meter and see if it is under or over the nameplate rating when unit is running
take great care when you venture into electric,if you arent comfortable find someone who is.
you may have a weak breaker if all the above pass?

The fan not in the shroud may cause this. Are you sure the condenser fan is even running or running at the right speed? If its not running, the compressor head pressure will build up until it possibly pops the breaker.
