This is possible with 50 amp service (not 30 amp service).

Oh, NOT being able to...

That is correct. The fireplace (depending on model) is either 1500 watt or 2000 watts. The Microwave is 1100 watts (with an induction load - startup current - for the magnetron).

Just those two items ALONE can exceed 30 amps. In my camper there is a wall switch that selects one or the other and never both at the same time.

Microwave and air conditioner is "dicey" as the sum of the amperages depends on whether the compressor/fan is peaking at the same time as the magnetron. It may work sometimes and not others.

Any chance the fireplace and microwave are on the same subcircuit? Was it the main breaker tripping or a smaller breaker inside the RV panel tripping?

They're talking about the case where there is a switch to allow only one of the two to run. Nothing is tripping.

Also, I don't see youroo's post that is being quoted anymore so I suspect he edited it. I don't think we have any evidence that this is happening in a 50-amp service RV. (They shouldn't have wired it that way if it is.)

I believe this is the original thread being referred to: Flagstaff Super Lite 8528 IKWS 5'ver

Barry can't be fur certain, but I believe I remember at least two posts where people claimed they run tons of loads on a 30 amp cord. One even claimed it's cause the equip only draws full current part of the tiime. (not really). This I would guess in the last two weeks is maybe what Youroo is referring to.
