Not sure if I heard a click or not. I did a single breaker just now and it works. I might just stick with that setup. Maybe I did the setup of the double wrong, but I don't think so.

I'd leave it like that then. You've got a 50A inline between that and the winch, so you should be ok. I'm pretty sure the double setup was just redundant. Mine was double, but I didn't have an inline fuse on mine.

Looks to me like the positive cable with the two breakers and red wire are on the negative terminal?

Wrong, sorry red is correct. Black should be positive and white is negative.

They are tripping because you have the black and white cables on the wrong terminals. Look at the other photo sent in closely.

Probably not based on the following.

Also, it's hard to go by color coding wiring on these things as they're hit or miss depending on who wired it. I think all of mine have been Red + and Black - on the 12V side from the battery back with one exception that used white instead of red, but used all black and white (black +) on the inside for everything 12V and 120V once it hit the fuse block.

I don't think the wires are wrong, it's worked fine for the 3 years I've owned the camper. And it works now, but...

The circuit breaker keeps tripping when I raise the roof. It raises a foot, trips, resets after a few seconds, then repeat. I raised enough to get out what I needed, then lowered it. It lowered fine without tripping.

So I think the whole system needs to be greased up. I'm guessing it's stressing the system, drawing too much power, and tripping. I'll grease it up next week and see if that helps.

Thanks all for the comments, I appreciate you taking the time to help.

It made me nervous only when raising it at a campground; never when raising it to clean out the trailer in the driveway. I never trusted it after the gear shattered and the roof dropped.
