Unlessd I missed something I noted you are plugged into 120 volt with a 30 amp cord but is the outlet you are connected to also a 30 amp or higher. using a 20 amp cheater plug on the cord could leave you with low voltage/higher amp draw resulting in A/C overload.

Thanks for all of the feed back, I have been able to get most things working, and I will continue troubleshooting the small balance when the weather cools, I never considered what the voltage was from the outlet, I will check that the next time I think about it. As far as fuses, have anyone use the small 12 volt breaker, I would think that would eliminate the need to have fuses, you feed back on these 12 volt breaker is most welcomes. As far as overheating that also makes a lot of sense, how many of you used a computer fan to cool these breaker/fuses? They seem to be easy to install and if there are dong a good job for computer it seem as if they will work there also.

nbounder jogged my memory. On my Prog. Dynamics control center my A/C was constantly popping a breaker even on Gen. The main breaker was next to and touching an A/C breaker. The combined heat from both high current breakers was enough to pop the lower amp one. I swapped the A/C breaker position on the buss with another lower current draw breaker. The problem was immediately solved.

Breakers

I will diffidently check that out, it appears I have 2 small breaker one for each air conditioner but connected together, I don't know what this breaker is called, but it is a mini breaker in one breaker size, each one protect one of the other air conditioners, or at least that is the way it seems. I had another problem that I was going to blow off, because I really don't need them, but I did troubleshoot my floor lights and they indeed do work, but the previous owner installed a roof fan onto this same system, and when the lights are turn on the power weaken to the point the fuse blows. I guess the fan is pulling too many amps. Does anyone have any suggestion on what I can do to correct this problem, I am unable to separate the circuit, and would prefer to use the fan than the floor lights. It won't hurt to have some feedback just in the case I discovered a need for these floor lamps.

One other matter, when I walk into the motor home there is 2 rocker on that left wall, the first far left power the step lamp and the handle lamp, but I have yet discover what the one on the inside or right switch operate, any idea?

Thanks again for all of you feed back
