Newbie looking for help

I have a Cardinal 33ft. 2004, I am 3rd owner. It really was never used. Now I am full timing and have some issues that I hope someone can help with. I purchased in 2008 and in 2009 I had to replace a/c with oem a/c unit and refrig (replaced with apartment size frig at same time. Then I had to replace both ends of my power cord. Well now again the power cord had to be cut out of the trailer again and I have to replace the end again that goes into the shore power. We have checked the power box and everything is fine. I don't feel I am overusing power. Have a/c on tv and computer. I have to turn a/c off to vacuum or use the microwave. The cord is for a 30amp service, I have all the books where does it tell me about amperage or where can I find it? A neighbor had almost same trailer and his was 50amp and he never had a problem with his. Should mine be 50 also and how can I tell?? Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Borrow, rent, buy a amprobe and measure the real current flow. That will reveal much...
