A/C Problem

Blue ridge 3025 2014 RV -Bedroom A/C works normally ,main A/C trips RV circuit breaker after operating for 3 to 10 min. Most times the breaker will reset immediately and the A/C unit resumes. Seams like the hotter the outside temp the shorter the time the A/C remains on prior to tripping the breaker. Any ideas or feedback. Thanks.

Are you hooked to 50 amp service?

Is the main A/C a 15k BTUH unit? There have been problems with some of those units.
There have been several reports of people having to have them replaced. Myself included.

I think I would start with checking the connections at the breaker and the AC to ensure they are tight. It may be a bad (weak) breaker. As BR said are you hooked to 50 amp?

Yes we are connected to 50 amp and I checked the connection also.

You could try replacing the breaker just to see if it's weak. That'd be easy to try before anything else. Especially since you've already checked the connections.

Good advice. Will try a new beaker switch. Thanks.

It could also have a dirty condenser. That will cause excessive discharge pressure and increased amp draw.
If available. Check amp draw and confirm.

Thank you all. The new circuit breaker worked. Finally found one at Home Depot after trying 2 rv parts departments.

Thanks for coming back and letting us know what fixed it. I'm glad it was as easy as a new breaker. A pretty easy fix as far as fixes go.
