1997 Newmar Mountain Aire Electrical Issue

Hi everyone, I have 1997 Mountain Aire 5th wheel wiring issue that if I have a circuit breaker diagram would be very helpful... But that doesn't seem possible... The circuit breaker that controls the front half of the coach 110V plugs keeps tripping, I wouldn't care to much, but that is where the inverter-charger is plunged in, hence the batteries don't charge?
There is nothing plugged into any of the outlets and everything else appears to be working, but the ceiling fan in the living room, sooooo I am at a loss?
Any suggestions of what it could be or would anyone know where I can get a 110v Diagram showing what the Breakers operate?

Welcome to iRV2.

Iíve helped a friend with a 99 Newmar fifth wheel , with some issues but not 120 volt electrical problems.
Any chance the water heater is on the circuit ?

Try replacing the breaker. Breakers do go bad over the years.

Also can start by unpluging everything. See if it still trips. If it doesnt start pluging things in one at a time.

You might try exchanging the tripping breaker with another of equal rating in the panel. If the breaker still trips, you'll know it's an electrical problem. If the problem is solved, the breaker was worn out and you'll need to replace it.

120v circuits in an RV are rather simple, If you get all the breakers holding, you can turn one off at a time and check which outlets and systems are powered by that breaker. Make your own drawing of the system.

Thank you.. I will look at it and swap out a breaker.. The only I think it isn't that is because it is tripping the house circuit breaker for the garage it is plugged into ..

If you can find what is on that circuit you may find a bad outlet causing the breaker to trip.

Although most new rigs dont have what you are looking for, remember your rig is 21 years old made by a company that doesnt make towables anymore.
