Re: Circuit Breakers Comparison
A circuit breaker is an automatically-operated electrical switch designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by overload or short circuit. Unlike a fuse, which operates once and then has to be replaced, a circuit breaker can be reset (either manually or automatically) to resume normal operation.

It could be if your breakerwhen you remove it says 120 volt or 240 volt than no same but if it is saying DC volts than yes different should say what it is on side of breaker or on in side of breaker box door I would think age of rv mostly 120volts
There are two things with different answers- \'trip\' normally can apply to either the circuit breaker (~15-20 amperes) or the Ground Fault Interrupter where the latter can be part of a circuit breaker or a wall-mounted AC outlet.
Circuit (overload) breakers prevent fires when appliances (or others) and GFIs prevent death by electrocution.
The first (breakers), can trip when motors and transformers fail, the second (GFIs) trip when a faulty current path is detected that can allow hazardous AC voltages to be present on accessible parts.
Both circuit breakers and GFIs can fail to perform correctly and some training and a multimeter is required to accurately determine the source of the problem.
circuit breakers working indicates an overload of the circuit probably from a short in the wires or relays . Circuit breakers are resettable fuses and if you had fuses instead by now you would be hunting the fault as replacing the fuses all the time becomes a bore.
I wouldn't do that. Generally breakers are specific to the brand of panelboard you have. It can be as simple as being the difference between a plug-in breaker and a bolt-on breaker but it can be as complicated as putting in a different kind making it no longer UL certified. The UL certification applies to the specific brand of panel board with the specific cover that comes with it and the guaruntee of only same brand circuit breakers in it. Are you having a hard time finding the same brand of breakers or were you considering it because of cost?
The 30amp circuit breaker for the power windows is in the fuse box in the engine compartment. But it resets itself if it blows. Thats why its a circuit breaker instead of a fuse. From there the power goes to both front door control modules then to the door switches.
A circuit breaker is similiar to a fuse (a circuit protector that will burn out when too much current is pushed through it). The difference is that when a fuse goes it is no longer usable. When a circuit breaker goes it will reset itself when it cools and become usable again. Circuit breakers are usually used on circuits with heavier loads such as windwield wiper motors etc.
Normally pump motors are connected on a separate circuit with its own circuit breaker. At your house there is always a electrical control panel housing several circuit breakers for lights, power outlets, range, aircon, motors, etc...Find a tripped off breaker and reset it. To reset the circuit breaker is to switch it to off position and back to on position. Better still you may reset all the circuit breakers except the main circuit breaker (biggest amp rating). After resetting the circuit breakers, try to switch your bathtub pump on, (to test it, if it is still okey). Other- wise, your motor is damaged and you got to have the motor rewinded, to be operational.
relays are normally in the fuse panel on the left side of dash by knee.
Fuses and Circuit Breakers
Location and Values NOTE: The headlamp switch (11654) has an integral 20-amp circuit breaker.
The combination instrument panel fuse and circuit breaker panel contains most of the fuses and circuit breakers used in the system.
The fuses and circuit breakers are color-coded by amp rating.
The locations and values of the fuses and circuit breakers not contained in the panels are shown in the following chart.

The only possible check that could be done without removing/opening the Audiovox TV would be to check for the presence/absence of supply power/voltage depending on how the TV is powered (12VDC or 120 VAC). Normally, there would be an fuse and/or circuit breakers.for the RV's entertainment system including the TV.
The 120-volt circuit breakers and 12-volt
fuses are located in the same compartment. These devices interrupt the power if
the circuit is overloaded.The 120-volt circuit breakers include a 30
amp main breaker and several smaller breakers for individual circuits. If a
circuit breaker is tripped, look for an overload on the circuit, then reset it
by turning the breaker OFF and then turning it ON. Do not try to reset a breaker
the second time without locating the overload problem. The 12-volt fuses protect
individual circuits. If the circuit is overloaded, it will blow the fuse and the
fuse must be replaced. Check the circuit for an overload and replace the fuse
with the same type or amperage rating.
If the above checks out, then problem is internal to the unit and would require removal from its current position.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
