It would be a bit of a chore but if you get it all fixed and find the
circuit breaker is tripping, you could add an extra circuit.
I donno about your trailer but on mine it would be relatively simple
to add a circuit breaker and run the wire out the bottom
and over and up to the water heater.

A pain to do on a new trailer but it's really only about a 2 or 3 beer
project once you get the new breaker and some wire.

Good luck!!

It would have to be a 2 beer project......my cardiologist thinks that I should only have 2 drinks a day. I am currently shopping for a new doctor.

The electric water heater has never worked, so I am not sure if that and the fridge running at the same time will even trip the breaker. I think it would be fairly simple to install another circuit, as both wires should already be run to the converter. But since it is still under warranty, I will probably ask the dealer to do that.

What he said! However I usually find that my estimation on time to complete a project needs to be doubled as rarely does a project go like I plan it, therefore the 3 beer estimation should really be a 6 beer project. If things aren't going well about half way into the job you wont really care
