I have one push to reset CB on the Inv, it is 30amps. When it trips, it kills all plugs in the coach, and there are a lot.

As 336muffin said, the inverter has the one 30 amp cb and when it trips, the whole motor home goes down, or rather the 120v side goes down. The 12v lights remain on. This really isn't a big deal to me, I respect the protection, I'm just trying to understand the system.

I think I may have tipped a ciruit breaker also.We have been going in and out of our coach in our drive as we try to get familiar with it and I thought I may try a small 1500 watt heater instead of using the propane to to keep the chill off. My wife just came in from the RV and said the power was off.
I checked and the main power coming in seems to be off but the inverter still works. The small heater was off that I had plugged into the very front of the coach.
Where should I begin to look to find the problem.
Boy I sure am glad I am having these problems while i am still home and not on the road.befy v

Mine is on the side of the inverter, a white reset button.

My coach the micro does not go thru the inverter. If you are dry camping and use the micro thru the inverter you might get 10 minutes or so before the batterys would be low (havent done the math) You might rewire the micro curcuit to bypass the inverter. If the inverter feeds some breakers in the 110 panel then you or an electritian could just add or move one breaker. Just a thaught
