Anybody else have a single 15 amp breaker that runs just teh water heater and the fridge?
reason to query, urs keeps popping as the temps out side would go up
then i ran a load test with both appliances on and found 12 amps for the water heater and 3.5 for the fridge...yep thats 15.5 for a 15 amp breaker.
so i did some searcing anf made sure thats was ll that was on the circuit and swapped it out with a 20 amp cb. now we have no more popping and have a few amps left over to spare.

the main ,apnel even had it all labled wrong the water heater was supposed to be on its own circuit and the fridge on the last breaker sharing the bath rooom gfci ( bad move its already close to max of 15 if you runthe coffe pot and toater )

looking for if it happened to any one else
