We were camping last week with 50 amp service. I never saw the voltage meter out of the green (between 113 to 127 (mostly between 118 to 121) . My main AC and bedroom AC are on the same 20/20 duplex breaker. The main AC was the only one tripping. It tripped several times on a very hot day and one time during the night. The breaker would feel hot when I would reset it. The main in the camper or the main on the CG pole never tripped. Fridge was on electric. Hot water heater was on gas. Our 5ver is prepped for washer but does not have one.
It is my understanding that with the setup I have, all breakers on the left side of the 50amp main get their power from the one input power wire and the breakers on the right side of the 50amp main get their power from the other input power wire. If this is correct then both my main and bedroom ACs are getting power from the same input power wire.
After reading of a recall on breakers, although mine does not fit the recall, I think I will replace the 20/20 duplex breaker.
We will be camping in a CG with 30 amp hook up in a couple weeks and am concerned with keeping cool.
Here is a pic of my current setup. I added the 15/15 duplex breaker and a vacuum, we have no fireplace.
Here are what I see as my options. Not sure which option is the best.
1) Just replace the 20/20 duplex with a new one just like it.
2) Replace the 20/20 duplex with two 20amp single breakers (taking up last open spot). Keeping the main ac and bedroom ac on the same (left hand) side of the 50amp main.
3) Replace the 20/20 duplex with a new one just like it, and move the 'bedroom AC' to the 20amp 'washer' position, move 'washer' to where 'bedroom AC' is now.
4) Replace the 20/20 duplex with two 20amp single breakers (taking up last open spot). Move the 'bedroom AC' to the 20amp 'washer' position, move 'washer' to the open 20amp single breaker.
What are your thoughts on my options? Am I missing something?
