Default circuit breaker problems

I have a 2015 233rbs that is kicking breakers. It started only kicking when i had everything on.Then it got worse and started kicking with 3 things on. Now it kicks a breaker with only the air conditioner on. I can't use the camper now. What is wrong?

It sounds exactly like a short, but I have no idea how to isolate it. This is the sort of problem that I take to the dealer -- I am a dunce when it comes to fixing electrical problems.

Repeated tripping of a circuit breaker can cause the breaker to get weaker and therefore trip easier. You don't mention which breaker is tripping so it's hard to be very specific. Keep in mind that nearly all of the circuits in a RV are shared, for example our air conditioner and bathroom outlet are on the same breaker so the hairdryer can cause a breaker to trip. Here is a link to a chart of power usage for various appliances etc.

It always kicks the 20 amp breaker, which is for the air conditioner. When it does the micro ,fridge, and under counter outlet also goes out.

Extra info: When the 20 amp air conditioner breaker is turned off,then everything else that is 120 volts goes off too. Then i turn it back on and start turning off individual breakers for micro,fridge and gfci outlet. Each one goes off as it should also. Does that sound right?

I finally figured out the problem with the circuit breaker. The main wire was hooked to the 20 amp breaker and the air conditioner was hooked to the 30 amp breaker. The problem is solved.
