2011 WP30 house 110v circuits question

Anyone know if the 110 is on 1 or 2 circuits? Living in my WP, I have a lot of stuff plugged in. If two, are they split by side to side or front to back?
Thanks

Hopefully someone with a unit identical to yours will know, but prior experience tells us that two of the same model may not be wired the same. And if it is two separate circuits, they may not split in any rational direction.

How many breakers are in the power panel for the branch circuits?

Do you have more than one GFCI?

If your unit is a 50 amp unit there are 2 busses (circuits) and they are typically wired to provide a ballanced load (110 volt electrical items divided equally by amperage requirement) between the 2 busses. Thus by electrical items and not predicated upon location (fore/aft/left/right) within unit. There will be 50 amps available to each buss. If your unit is a 30 amp unit there is only one buss for all 110 volt requirements and 30 amps maximum available for the entire unit.

The penmanship/writing on the descriptions for ea breaker is so poor that it's almost impossible to tell what's what.
I can make out about 6 of the eleven.

If you have 11 120volt breakers then you have 11 different circuits. If you counted the main breaker then you have 9 different circuits.

I find it odd that you only have 1 GFCI with that many circuits. That indicates that the kitchen, bath and any outside receptacles are on the same circuit.

On the Palomino hybrid, I have 1 GFCI that supply 120v to the kitchen, bath and any outside receptacles all on the same circuit.
Then I have a seperate braker for the microwave outlet.

My bad! Should have been more clear, or at least more awake when I posted my response.
11 DC fuses
5 AC breakers. Main, AC, Converter, Micro, GFCI

Since I live in my unit and have a bunch of ac stuff plugged in, it would be nice to know how many ac circuits I have so I can try to balance out what's plugged in where.

Like hammer55 stated, you have only 1 subcircuit for AC outlets according to what you have posted. Also if you only have four branch subcircuits, you must have a 30 amp RV too.

Another consideration is if you also have an electric/propane powered water heater. You may sometimes find out when using the water heater with the electric 120 volt heating element, that if the heating element comes on at the same time as other things on the same subcircuit that it is connected to, that a breaker will trip. Sometimes the waters heater's electric element will be on the same subcircuit as the microwave, or could be on the same as all the other outlets.
