Steve and Cindy Posted July 4, 2022 Share Posted July 4, 2022 The last two times I have had Hullabaloo parked in the driveway at home and connected to shore power, the breaker on my home's dedicated 20A circuit has tripped after the Dometic air conditioner runs for 5-10 minutes. It also tripped off yesterday when the air conditioner was not running. I re-started the 20A shore power feed this morning and noted that the Progressive surge protector display in the attic was bumping up around 20A. Nothing was running on A/C current in the Oliver except the Xantrex inverter/charger in charge mode. I have the 390AH Lithium package with the 3000W Xantrex, and my Dometic has the soft start. My batteries have been down to 60-80% the last few days, so the charger has been running in bulk charge mode. My theory is that the charger is drawing most of the capacity of my home's 20A circuit, and the A/C on top of that is too much. Is this a plausible theory? On previous occasions, I probably had full batteries and the charger was more in float mode. A few other possible factors: It has been very hot here, in the upper 90s and the breaker is about 20 years old, so there may be some reduced amperage capability on that circuit. Looking for any advice. Thanks! 2016 F-150 3.5L EcoBoost 4x4 Max Tow | 2022 Oliver Elite II - Hull#1034 'Hullabaloo' Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
