My suburban dsi rv hot water keeps throwing breakers


Appears to be a short in tank circuit probably cause by a water leak in tank. These usually wear a rusty hole in the tank inside the cover and are not seen unless the thermostat covers are taken off. I would remove them and do a visual thoroughly. Anytime a fuse blows or a breaker trips is always a dead short unless you have a bad breaker. I would check those as well for vibrating, chattering noises, and/or smoking. If any of this persist, replace breaker. A melted heat element could trip them, but not usually for it leaves an open circuit instead of a shorted one.

Circuit breaker is tripping on electric shower?

This could be absolute danger until more information is known.

1) Breakers trip because they sense heat, because the wire size is too small, or breaker size is mismatched with wire. Or breaker is loose on busbar.
Copy following links to determine correct wiring and breaker:

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Tankless-electric-water-heater.html

GFCI circuit breaker will trip because of same heat condition described above, and also trip if ground fault is detected.
Water leaking into element will trip GFCI.
Absolutely you need to get this problem fixed before shower is put back into service.
Call electrician, or the installer, or the manufacturer, or all.

Before I spent the money on a new heater I would check reset to make sure it did not trip. I would also check element and make sure you are getting flow thru outlet and that it did not plug up with rust and mineral .
Depending on the water quality where you live I would expect to get at least ten years use out of a electric heater. Thank you.

It may be a weak breaker. If you have replaced all the components on the water heater. I would suggest calling an electrician to check out the breaker.

THE INSTA HOT HEATER KEEPS TRIPPING THE BREAKER?


Hire an electrician.  The breaker needs to be replaced or the wiring in your house is not able to handle it.  I believe most need 2-30amp breakers.
