200MBLE Popping house breaker

Bought new 21018 MBLE. Hooked it up to house power everything worked, no issues for several weeks getting ready for road trip.... went on a 17 state 4,200 mile road trip in May (everything worked great). Came home for Memorial day and had some extra family stay over. Hooked up the 200MBLE to house power just like before, but now it pops the circuit breaker at the 2:00 min mark. Same connection, same heavy extension cord...something simple something happen or do I have to take it in

If you are connecting to house power, I assume you mean you are using an adapter and plugging into probably a 15 amp outlet. If so, then that is your maximum of amps, and this includes the RV and anything else in your house on that same circuit.

Are you perhaps now trying to run an air-conditioner in the RV...as this almost always overloads a 15 amp circuit breaker.

If you turned on the electric heating element to your water heater (12 amps), then this also will trip a 15 amp circuit breaker at your house with other things on.

Try turning off the fridge and see if it still trips. I found out on my 280able that the ac wiring behind the fridge in the access panel gets wet and trips.

If someone turned on WH ( electric side) without water in it, it will burn out the element and can cause a ground fault. If the house outlet it is plugged into a GFCI protected outlet. Try connecting to one that is not protected.

what else in your house is on that circuit? perhaps a visiting grandchild in the basement with an x-box is now putting an additional load on that circuit?
