When using the A/C you need to run the HW on gas as I'm sure you have figured out by now. It's up to you to learn what AMPS are used by the different applicances in your RV and not exceed 30. Should keep it a bit below 30 actually. If your voltage is running at 130 your RV will pull more AMPS than if the voltage is 110.

I think you have that reversed, Voltage low more amps, voltage high amps lower.

Have you considered having it converted to 50 amp service? Even if you don't utilize the second phase you'll gain 20 amps by converting.
