No,you can not wire directly to a meter. All wiring must come through the circuit panel or sub panel.
150 amps is sufficient to run what you describe. You may have a weak main breaker or loose wiring to these appliances. Place a amp meter on a incoming supply wire at the main, while you monitor amp draw have someone go around the house and turn on all these appliances. If it trips at less than 140 amps you have a bad main.
I suspect you will find a bad neutral wire on one of these appliances.

Whether its a central air unit or a wall unit, make sure the condensor is clean and air can flow thru it
make sure the condensor fan is running, the condensor fan keeps the compressor from over heating
if the condensor fan stops running the compressor will over heat and trip the circuit breaker. good luck!

Can you tell me what size/make of motorhome you have? Certainly doesn"t sound right to me, and I've been working on them for over 15yrs. Whether it's a 13,500 BTU or 15,000 BTU, it should be plenty as long as motorhome has any insulation at all. I assume you have central air from ceiling?
The manufacturer usually states that the AC unit will supply 20F below ambient.
Is compressor staying engaged all this time?

Hi,
In most cases problems with the circulator pump boil down to two problems.
The most common is air in the lines causing an air lock.
The next problem is that the pump gets stuck and is not running even though itmay be hot and seem to be running. In this cause the pump can sometimes betaken apart, cleaned and it will work, but usually it needs to be replaced.

Here is a tip that I wrote that will explain circulator pump problems in moredetail.

Your pressure relief valve is probably bad, replace it. You might want to tap on the expansion tank to see if that is empty. If it is full, replace it.

This does not sound like a thermostat problem. I would be looking for a zone valve or circulator pump problem.

Amps needed to run a central air unit


Central air requires a 2 pole 30 amp breaker or fuse. You may be able to get by without it but 200 amp service is recommended.

Central haeting ok but no hot water


If the valve runs at other times, the valve is OK. you have a relay somewhere that is not sending signal to the valve when in that mode.

Trace down all the relays for that cycle and check voltage going int, coming out, and to see if the coil is enrgised.

Sounds likes you have a hot water system. Some where you have an expanion tank that is full of water and it should be half full. It will a round tank above the boiler and may even have a site glass on the end off it. It will have a special valve on it to lower the water level in the tank. The tank is to absorb the expanding water as it gets hot, and releases it when it cools down therefore preventing your relief valve from popping off.
