Hey. I know this topic has been thoroughly discussed, but your load does not sound too large for a 30amp breaker.

I was having a similar problem with my 30amp breaker popping under reasonable load. I replaced the breaker and it fixed my problem.

I am not an expert, but seems as if the switches get worn and over time will pop under lighter and lighter loads.

FYI.


It'll depend on voltage, over the weekend of the 4th I could only run my AC on my 30A, any other load brought the voltage below the cutoff on my EMS. Had to turn off converter and fridge and couldn't us the microwave during the day. At home with 126V I can run the fridge, converter, and AC on a 15A plug.

I was tripping my 30A main breaker one summer as well with similar loads as prior years. I ended up replacing that like afidel did which resolved the problem.
