Breaker Type

Can anyone tell me what the actual make of the breakers are in the WFCO WF-8955PEC distribution panel? I would like to keep an extra on hand. I have had breakers quit working in the past (not on this rv) so I'd like to be prepared. Thanks

Welcoome to the forum

They are standed SquareD QO type. (standard width)
SquareD is not the only one who make ones that will fit.
I personally like SquareD as I'm a retired Journey level Electrician by trade.

a single pole 15 amp single pole would be a QO-115
a single pole 20 amp single pole would be a QO-120
Etc

See picture what they look like in the back.

I have a WF-8955PEC at home that I removed when I upgraded to 50 amp service and I can tell you that they are nothing like the picture above.

There is a list of approved breakers on the label in the panel. They're standard stab-on type residential breakers like in a lot of home breaker panels.

I can take a picture of the label on the panel if yours is missing.

My last few campers had Square D Homeline breakers. Not the QO as previously stated.
