SOURCE: RV ROOF TOP AIR CONDITIONER TRIPS BREAKER

Possible low voltage condition would cause that kind of a problem. To small a cord without the ability to carry and maintain the voltage would cause a voltage drop. I would test the voltage supply and make sure it is within 10% of that required for your A/C to operate properly.

SOURCE: Air Conditioner Breaker Tripping

This is a tough one to diagnose without seeing the panel. It's the main breaker or just the a/c breaker? The easiest diagnosis is to put an amprobe on the black wire coming off the a/c breaker (Harbor Freight about $12.) to see how much current it's drawing. It should be less than the rating of the breaker (shown on the end of the handle). Make sure the thermostat is all the way down so the compressor is running.This is a likely solution because a high current draw can be caused by anything from leaves laying in the bottom of the shroud to a compressor starting to go bad. If that amperage is lower than the breaker rating and it trip's it's probably just a bad breaker.Another cheap fix. I would have to assume the rv dealer tried this so we can move on but it is the best starting point. Loose wires anywhere in that panel can also transfer heat through the buss bars. Unplug your power source and tighten all connections. The panel won't get warm until its been on a while and heat is what causes the breakers to trip. Again I assume the dealer would have tried that but I'm trying to cover all options. The last thing I can come up with is maybe the RV dealer isn't putting the cover back on the panel while troubleshooting which stops it from building up heat. Without the additional heat build-up the breaker won't trip. The inside of the breaker is two metals sandwiched together designed to bend when they get warm. When they get warm enough (caused by the rated current flowing through the breaker) they bend enough to push a button to trip the breaker handle. Try these out and let me know if it works.

SOURCE: dometic rv air conditioner over 100 deg. trips breaker.

The problem is that when u add up the electrical draw from all of these appliances running full bore, your draw exceeds your available amperage. Now you are doing the math and saying no...... Let me tell you why. It is rare to find a situation where a 100 amp service actually porovides 100 amps. You almost always have voltage dropo. And when you are adding extension cords to the mix the drop is even more. That said, When you are using the AC try to minimize the use of other appliances, especially the microwave which is a big draw too.

SOURCE: Breaker trips on roof top RV A/C

check your breaker is it hot to the touch?
check the wire tightness at the breaker?
remove the circuit breaker and inspect the terminals on the breaker and in the panel and the breaker itself for signs of overheating and discoloration due to the fact
check the connections at the unit itself
check that you have proper voltage to your unit
find the nameplate and look for FLA full load amp draw
is the breaker properly sized for the unit and is the wire size correct for the breaker?
(Check nameplate on unit)
buy a clamp on amp meter and see if it is under or over the nameplate rating when unit is running
take great care when you venture into electric,if you arent comfortable find someone who is.
you may have a weak breaker if all the above pass?
Replace it

SOURCE: outside unit trips the circuit breaker

Sir try blowing out the heat units you may have leaves blocking the system, also check to see if the screws have come out of the fans to see if they are not cooling correctly, if the breakers were bad it would reset them are yo having to reset the breakers for the system? and have you tried bypassing the controller head to see if the temperature head is defective?

Duo Therm A/C (2009 Sabre RV) won't shut off


bad compressor relay on control board. The relay is not opening the circuit, allowing the compressor to stay running when unit is turned off. This overheats the compressor and opens a thermal disk shutting the compressor off. When thermal disk cools down, the compressor restarts under load and trips breaker.

Rv airconditioner trips breaker


Does it trip when fan only , or when compressor for cool cuts in? Sounds like capacitor perhaps . Get back to me with model number, and whether it's a ducted system, or blows out at ceiling assembly.

I have 2 15000 BTU A/C units run to a double pole 20 amp each breaker. The breaker keeps over heating and one side will trip. Should i separate the units on their own breaker? The units cool and run fine...


That would work, if for no other reason, to isolate which one may be drawing too much/more amperage. Keep in mind as well, after a breaker trips too many times, it usually will get weak and trip at lower amperage. If all is same, ( wiring from AC units) and units are cleaned regularily and no other internal problems such as weak, bad, capacitors etc, they should both draw same or close to same. If possible that someone has a multimeter with amp draw clamp, that would confirm where trouble is.

I have a Quick Cool (59516.501) which just started tripping the 20 A circuit breaker. I replaced the circuit breaker. Unit still trips the circuit breaker.


you will need to access the unit and look for burnt/shorted wires on/at compressor. if not then the compressor is locked down/shorted and will need replaced Tim
