15 amp breaker trips

We have a 2007 Rockwood Ultra Lite 2502, with about 4000 travel miles to date. This is our second trailer. We hardly ever had a breaker trip in our coachmen, but we have the 15 amp breaker trip all of the time now. Does anyone else have this problem.

Hi travel kat,

Welcome to the Forest River Forums.

Did you mean, the breaker trips?

If so, which breaker trips?

Howdy,
Sorry, I'm not up on all the electrical terms. I fixed the first thread. The 15 amp. breaker for the bathroom Kitchen and I guess part of the living/dinning area is the one tripping. If I dry my hair, I have to turn off the bathroom vent and unplug the coffee pot. If we have the bathroom vent on and are watching tv then use the mirco wave it trips.

That will do it. Looks as though you are creating more of a demand than those circuits can supply. You will need to alternate your appliance usage.

The 15 amp breaker(3rd from top) handles all interior(wet area, bath & kitchen) & exterior receptacles, along with the refrigerator.

The 15 amp breaker(4th from top) is for the Microwave. It's possible the Bathroom vent and the tv are sharing the same curcuit. I'll have to check this curcuit on my trailer to varify that.

Smile 110 power

I had the same problems with my other two tt's. When I bought my 2007 32QBBS 5th wheel.
I installed an extra plug over the kitchen drawer and ran the wire thru the floor and put a male plug on it so when I get to where I am going I can run an extension cord straight to the power supply. Where I go camping they usually have a 110 receptable next to where I plug my 30 amp cord in. If I want to run anything big like a heater, Electric frying pan I do not have to worry about tripping the breakers.

Something seems wrong obviously. I run an electric heater and a coffee pot off the same kitchen breaker. The vent fan should take next to nothing in power and should be on a seperate circuit from the kitchen. I think I would contact my dealer and have him run some load tests for you. It's not a GFCI that's trippinp is it?
