I think with the new TT we'll be running the Fridge and HW heater on LP this time. It will be around 100 degrees this weekend and I want the Ac to be working with no problems. Thanks everybody.

The Microwave in my XLR uses 21 amps, and when the AC is hammering it uses 18 amps. Too much for my 30 amp unit. I'm guessing there are better microwaves than what the factor puts in, and you can probably find one that is not such a hog.

You got me to thinking that I need to check our microwave. It's never been used yet, but I think I'll go check it out. Thanks for that info.

Dave, I just checked the microwave. If I'm figuring right, it pulls almost 11 1/2 amps. The amp guide that came with all the TT paperwork suggests 12.8. I see why now FR suggests using the wh and fridge on gas to save the electrical consumption. Thanks for the heads up, Dave.

Depends on the breaker. Should not trip. 30 amp main.

May trip a 20 branch circuit if both on but both should not be on one circuit to begin with.

a 15,000 BTU ac draws 18-20 amps alone. Add the micro and you are right at 30 amps with nothing but those 2.
