Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
Sounds like compressor's ,start capacitor, may be defective. Might be smart to have someone experienced in electrical check/change it, as it can be very dangerous due to high voltage stored in it.

Your compressor seems to be grounded. That is bad news. First make sure all wirings are intact and nothing is bare and grounding to metal. If all seems normal then the compressor is fried.

You have a faulty start capacitor. The capicitor helps start the motor ... since it is not doing its job, the motor draws LOTS more power from the line popping the breaker. Have your professional RV service center service your AC.

Testimonial: "I am a technical Instructor for a major import, so I know my way around HVAC. so glad to have someone who can pin point the problem I found that the motor start fuse on top of the capacitor is melted. it still has some continuity, but looks like your diagnosis will fix it."
