circuit breaker

We have a 2005 Rockwood. Our 20 amp circuit breaker keeps blowing.

We have replaced the converter, battery, and the circuit breaker itself.

Had 2 rv people look at it and can't figure out why it keeps blowing. It mainly shuts off when we have something plugged into one of the outlets. We tried all 3 of the outlets and sometimes it does it and sometimes not.

Any suggetions? We're getting very frustrated

Thanks

I would suggest pulling each outlet from the wall and check all of the wire connections. Make sure they are all good and tight. Then try plugging in again. If it still pops the breaker then I would say there is a short in the line somewhere. Possibly a screw or staple in the romex.

we reset and it's fine. Then it varies in the time that it pops again. It could be short or a longer amount of time.

I would start looking at all the outlets on that circuit!
I am wondering why you replaced the converter and battery though. As IT should have nothing to do with the 110 v 20amp circuit popping other than the breaker itself being bad.

The battery was dead and then it fried the converter. Now, this started happening.
