Hi, the reason this unit, any unit, is tripping breaker, blowing fuses, is that you have a short circuit, somewhere in the unit, between the Phase Wire and Neutral/Earth.
Usually this is on the main PCB, but in reality, it maybe anywhere within the unit.
With a problem such as this it is nearly impossible to tell exactly where the problem lies, without performing the troubleshooting steps, accordingly i have given you a link below to download your Service and repair manual, also i have included a DIY help site as well.

Why does AC Duo-Therm thermost throw the breaker and needs set to approx 55/50 to run ?


`Try changing the breaker some times they get weak and will trip at start up. Also check for bare wire shorting out. Then check capacitor then fan motor spin blades to see if they spin easy and that bearings are not bad.. make sure all connections are tight with no corrosion. These problems show up more with short cycling then with long.

Hatco booster blowing breakers


Copy following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-is-blowing-breaker.html

Hatco booster heater typically has 2 sets of thermostats and elements located on each end of heater.
Both sides might be controlled by same 60 amp breaker, or the heater might be controlled by two separate 30 amp breakers.
Be sure you have correct wire and breaker.

After reading steps on link above, add comment and say if this is new installation, or older installation that suddenly started throwing breaker.

The air condition in my 2006 Lardo 5th wheel keeps throwing the breaker sometime it will run 15 minutes or 4 hours then throw the breaker


You could possibly have a weak set of breakers. If you have access to an amp meter, clamp around on of the wires coming from the breakers so that you can measure the amp draw. If the amp draw of the unit (when running) is lower than the breaker rating, change the breakers.
The other problem could be a stopped up rear coil. This is the part that looks like a small radiator the the hot air blows through on the roof. You will have to take the cover off the unit to see the inside of the coil. Look through the rear fan blade and you will be able to see if the condenser coil is stopped up wit dirt etc. Hope this helps.

First I would check the size of the power supply cord to the coach. To small a line will cause a voltage drop which in turn will cause the amperage to increase. Check the supply voltage to the system.

Breaker keeps throwing


jhweis80 Why do you think the problem is the dryer? The circuit breaker itself could be bad and this is what I will check first. Probably you need a professional electrician to do it for you. Gendos post back...
