A/C

Help someone. Bought new Forest River Work and Play 8 weeks ago in Florida. We're doing our yearly trip to Oregon but stopped today to spend a week with friends in Boulder City and our A/C keeps throwing breaker. Called Forest River and no one calls back. Called several RV stores that sell their product around Vegas and no one will help. We've never had to deal with this before. We need advice. Thank you

Throws which breaker... internal to W&P or campground pedestal?
Is this a 30amp unit or 50amp?
What else is running? Microwave, electric water heater, hairdryer, etc.?

You called "Forest River" or the W&P division?

Need more info. Does the breaker trip instantly or does it take time. Is the wiring to the breaker tight.

The breaker itself might be faulty. I've read here some are sorry!

If you are tripping the 30 amp breaker then the problem is not the A/C. You are drawing too many amps. Is the water heater on propane or 120 volts. If on electric change over to propane.

We have water heater on propane and only turned lights on. It's tripping the 20 amp breaker for the AC

I'd start with the breaker and put a new one in.
Very simple to do.
