No advanced degrees here. I got tossed from the third grade because it looked bad to have my son pass me to the fourth. I did spend the night in a Holiday Inn once however. [emoticon] [emoticon]

We stayed the night in a CG in SD with a weak breaker. Progressive unit kept denying power. Owner changed the breaker and said the breaker was weak ( a spring maybe?) Power came right up with the new breaker in place.
That likely adds nothing to the discussion however.

Park changed the 50A breakers and the new tripped too. Two ACs and a Aqua Hot with 2 electric elements will overload most systems.
The mode 600D has 2X 2000W heaters. 16.7A + 15A A/C = 32A.

That leaves 18A on each leg which is certainly manageable. Of course if he has other high draw appliances and uses them all. Or the loads aren't balanced on the 2 hots. [emoticon]

He could turn off the A/C heat pumps and use just the Aquahot on electric and diesel. [emoticon] If the A/Cs are for cooling then the Aquahot would be for hot water only and the situation is even more managable. We turn on ours for hot water and then turn off. And of course leave it on when used for heating.

There is more to this story...

“There is more to this story”...yes, you could hang meat inside and it was a all electric rig. Usually happen when he was taking a shower and she was cooking. Talked him into using the diesel burner if she was making dinner...problem solved.

ivylog,

Thanks for the update. With a all electric rig they would be candidates for a PI HW50C with inside remote since they have to manage their electric usage.

Kinda wonder about a 50A autoformer also. But in 15 years I've only had low voltage at one CG on 50A but, my rig is not all electric. Of course I anticipate low voltage on 30A.

Original poster here - seems like this thread has been taken over with a different issue. Don't think that all the comments apply to the original post.

Agreed - and it seems like the issue is resolved.
