My answer is only a guess. I believe it is the max amps the chargers can receive of the incoming power. What is the reason for 15 amp setting? Entegra said they didn't' need to be set above 30 amps, even on 50 amp, but never gave a reason.

I was told set on 30 amp as rarely do any of us plug into less at any campground so we don't need to change it IF set at 50 amp.

Chuck,

You basically are on the right track. One inverter has a 125 amp DC charger the other one a 100 amp DC charger. Allowing for inefficiencies in the conversion from AC to DC the larger MS2812 can only use about 15 amps AC at 100% output from the charger. The smaller 2012 can only use about 12 amps AC at 100% output from the charger.

Makes sense....if the battery chargers were allowed to use all of the incoming amps, there would be nothing left for other items which would cause the breaker to trip. Much like what the OP is experiencing.
