The could be three explanations:

The shore power has low voltage.
You have a bad start capacitor.
The breaker needs replacing because it has become weak from the constant tripping.

Check the start Cap. See if you see oily resedue or it looks out of shape (bulged out)

with fingers crossed, I'd replace the breaker first. Quick, easy, and cheap.

I suspect that you will find a bad PTCR (positive temperature co-efficient resistor) (motor starter) and start capacitor for the compressor.
