A quick call to your salesman is quite in order.

Depends on the amperage draw of your water heater and microwave. I know the owners manual on my 2013 Bullet warns me of running multiple devices like a/c, microwave and water heater.

I agree on the call you should be able to run that unit normally and not have to worry about trip breakers

I have had a similar problem with mine, I found that main and the AC were on a twin breaker in my panel which should not be a problem however when I'm in older parks it will trip due to under voltage (lower the voltage higher the amps volt/watts=amps).That causes it to trip it heats up and DOES its job.What I did is put in a full size 30amp main and a full size 20amp breaker for my AC. Short time fix would be to use your water heater in gas mode and turn it off and on as nneded to save gas from inside of your TT (it only takes about 5 min to heat up recovery time on gas is rocket fast)
