If you mean the breaker for the outside outlet, it's a 15 amp
and could be marginally defective. More likely your golf cart is probably
drawing close to 15 amps when it's first plugged in.
The only way to know for sure is to check with a clamp on ammeter.
Does your golf cart charger have an amp gauge?
You can do a ROUGH estimate of what it's drawing on the 120v
side by dividing it's amp reading by 3.
IE-- the golf cart amp meter says 30 amps when first plugged in.
divide by 3 and it's drawing AT LEAST 10 amps from the
120 volt receptacle in your RV.
Circuit breakers are cheap and it's not unusual for one to get "loose" after a trip. Again, we are all guessing.
The only way to know for sure what's up is with an amp meter.
Most electricians will have a clamp on amp meter.
Got any helpful neighbors at home or in your seasonal park??
KyDan & Iggy thanks for your reply. KyDan I know you mention that you all were guessing and you both hit it all on the head.
The main breaker trip first and after I reset It the main and the out side receptacle trip at the same time.
As far as the chargers go, on the my cart and the rental there were no amp meters on them just a light that stayed lite once the battery were fully charged.
While we at MB the temps were in the mid 90's so the a/c was most likely on at the time as Iggy mention. I think that everything that you both came up with contributed to the problem. I do have a clamp on ammeter and I will check it out this weekend.
This may be something that shouldn't be done, instead just plug into the campground power supply......Again thanks for the insight
