Breakers are Square D Homeline series. Can get them at any big box store or electrical supply business. You could download the Square D residential catalog. Square D is now owned by Snieder (spell?).

Double breakers are referred to as "tandem".

HOM for the single. HOMT for the tandem single pole.

You can find a 30amp HOM easily at the big box stores. Much harder to find the 30amp/20amp HOMT. I moved my AC over to its own 20amp HOM (had an empty slot) and put in a 30amp HOM in the main breaker slot. My combo (HOMT) was getting hot and tripping to easily. No more issues with the big loads on more standard HOM full size breaker.

Just unhook from shore power, disconnect wires from breaker and take the breaker with you.

However, by definition "sometimes" also means "not always"! We do not know the OP's circumstances.

If he has circumstances where he can't unplug and take the breaker out, he's gonna have a hard time replacing it.

You are absolutely correct! BUT, the possibility remains that he doesn't have access to the trailer currently. For all we know, his trailer could be sitting on a permanent vacation site 100's of miles away, and he may want to bring along the new breaker next time he "goes camping".

edit...scratch the word trailer, and insert the letters "RV"...I just noticed in his sig, that he has a motorhome.

Thanks for all the feedback. Project now complete as the ice maker now runs off of coach power and pulls water from either city or tank feed. The objective was to put 120v in the rear bay tied to the 30 amp feed. As a side note I used my stud finder "elect alert" status as a quick non instrusive line check for power.

Now if I had a large enough inverter we come make ice as we drive thus shortening the lead time to the first whiskey sour upon arrival........
