25BDRS Breaker

Quick question. What breaker is the receptacles tied too? Iím assuming itís the 15 AMP fridge breaker because it keeps tripping. We are trying use a oil radiator to assist in heating for our little family getaway to Branson.

No way of us telling with any certainty. You'll have to look at the breaker legend on the left side of the service panel. It's entirely possible that all of your receptacles are tied together. In that case 15 amps is all that circuit will handle.

do it the other way around. get a 120 volt circuit tester ($5 at any hardware store). plug into shore power. turn one breaker off and then test each receptacle with the circuit tester to see if that receptacle has power. if not, it is protected by the breaker that is turned off. then to confirm, turn the breaker back on and test again with the circuit tester. it should now show power to the receptacle. take some time and trace down each and every receptacle. and write it down!

X2! One of these should be in every RV'er's tool box. Available at Lowe's or HD.

If you're running your water heater on electric, it's possible it's on the same circuit as the outlets. If so, the breaker isn't big enough to run both the water heater and the oil heater. Run the water heater on gas until you can separate the circuits.

Some people run their space heaters on a separate extension cord that they run through their slide and plug into the 15 amp outlet on the power pole.
