Circuit breaker keeps tripping

Got a new surge protector this year. First time with a surge protector. Came to camp two weeks in a row with no electricity due to tripped circuit breaker. Any suggestions?? Thanks.

Is the breaker tripping on the park post or inside the RV ?
What kind of RV ? MH, TT, 5er?
Hard wired surge protector, Brand name ?

If it's hard wired in , did you do the install ? Can you pull the surge protector out, or take it back to the shop that installed it ?
Tried calling the TRC help line ?
Any other mods to the RV over the winter ?

It is a plug in surge Protector. No mods to trailer

The electricity is fine while we are here. Surge guard has a delay. When power comes on circuit breaker trips.

Remove surge protector and plug directly into pedestal. If breaker does not trip, it must be the surge protector. If your breaker still trips, then there's something wrong inside your trailer. Since it's happened twice, it's not the cg power.

Don't plug in (or pull your plug out) with the power live. Always turn the pedestal breaker off first. Come to think of it, try that procedure with the Surge Guard plugged in. Converters have a high inrush current that can cause problems.

Have you hooked up without the surge guard in line and had power ?
or do you only blow the circuit breaker when the SG allows power after the delay , and you can't re-set it without blowing again?
Gil, types faster than I do; everybody types faster that I do.
