Blowing fuse

New user here. I have a 2009 wildcat and one of my main 30 amp fuses is blowing regularly. I have all ready changed the plug on power cord and it seem to do it with generator and plugged into 110 in house plug. Any ideas would be appreciated thanks
Scott

it does it when plugged into your house? Do you have a 30 amp plug at home or just plugging into standard home outlet? If just a regular outlet, you have no where near 30 amps available, so you surely aren't overloading circuit, so obviously looking for a short. Need to narrow it down as to what is on or being turned on when it blows.

It's just a regular house hold plug so I'm not overloading it. It was blowing the fuse while slides were going in or out. But why didn't it blow the 15 or 20 amp just for the slide? It's blowing the main and killing all power to camper. So I changed plug on end of power cable and it worked fine on gen and house. So I left it plugged to house with just ceiling fan on and went back to it a week later and 30 amp main blown again. I don't know why. Could it be the batter has a bad cell causing it

do you have a battery disconnect to take that out of the equation?

I would try replacing the 30A breaker. The battery should not have anything to do with shore/gen power.
