I can run the A/C and hot water heater together but adding a Hair Dryer pops the breaker within a few minutes of use.

What wattage Hair Dryer are you using?

I can run the A/C and the Microwave without tripping it.

you only have a 30 amp circuit

the A/C alone draws between 12 to 15 amps
so when you add the Microwave, Hot Water Heater and dont forget the converter is charging the battery as well - doesnt leave much room for another appliance
