    i think it pulls too many amps its the fan is 1.5hp the generator is 6.5hp so its well big enough

  • Shane Gannon Mar 20, 2011

    no the amps for startup will be higher than the running amps and if its to high it wont start it without triping braker

Coleman mach rv ac unit tripping breaker

If it trips the circuit breaker as soon as you turn the FAN on, suspect either a bad fan motor or a failed fan motor start capacitor. If you are able to turn the fan on but the circuit breaker trips as soon as the COMPRESSOR starts, it is possible that the compressor is seized.
If, on the other hand, the unit is tripping a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) breaker or GFCI utility outlet, it is possible that neutral and hot are reversed at the outlet into which the trailer is plugged (happened to me this year at an RV park).

I have just brought a older style lie Down sunbed! My thing is the bottom section works fine ! But the top one as soon as I plug in the plug it trips the switch

Some of these units use more than 10amps [2400watts at 240volts 1100watts at 110volts] AND will cause the fuse to blow/or circuit breaker tripping every time on a normal wall outlet/circuit.
Best option is to get your local ELECTRICIAN to run a "DEDICATED" 15amp [or larger] CIRCUIT and wall outlet in the room where your Sun Bed is installed ...
The electrical amperage requirement for your unit should be found on the manufacturer's Compliance Plate [on your unit] ...
ALSO it is possible that there may be a FAULT in the top unit [sometimes caused by a damaged supply cable on the older type "CLAM-SHELL" units] ...
Probably best to have it CHECKED/TESTED by your local Electrician.

Washing machine blowing trip?

It is best to disconnect the mains lines from the control panel to the different section, which are the motor, heater, inlet and outlet valve pump. If the fuse trips then the fault is the control panel board and could be a failure of the rectifier or SMPS driver. You might need to replace the board.

Genset starts and runs fine but the 30 Amp circuit breaker trips as soon as a load (AC) is applied. Started right up, ran half a day, but now when it starts the minutes I click on the ac the circuit...

What about when you have it powering the motorhome, without AC on, does it trip then? Do you have anyone you know with a multimeter and knows how to use it? How about buying a plug in voltage meter at a hardware store as a good start. You simply plug it in to a receptacle in your motorhome and it will tell you the incoming voltage and they are not very expensive. That will help diagnose generator problem.

Brand new microwave trips circuit as soon as it is plugged in, but does not trip the circuit the microwave is on

sounds to me like there is a reverse polarity somewhere ... Id be looking inside as how the power cord connects.

If you plug it in and blows the breaker, must be hot wire to ground.

Please let me know what you find.

I hope this helps sort your trouble out.

Rv electrical question

By the main breaker in the camper, do you mean the main 24 or 12 volt breaker, or the incoming 120vac breaker? Is it tripping the breaker in the camper, or the house? If it is tripping the breaker inside, i would look for maybe water damage, rusty components, maybe have an electrician come look at it, not worth going out away from home, and that problem ruining your vacation! Does this unit have a generator set? Try disconnecting the generator too. Hope that helps!
