Default Shore power blowing fuse

Hello everyone, after returning from our first camping trip I ran into a problem plugging shore power into my house. Everything worked fine plugged into my house and at the camp, now it blows fuse in house as soon as I plug into shore power. I can not why this is happening and looking for advice. I have a 2008 189FX funfinder

Is the AC turned on by any chance? If you're plugging into a household 15A circuit the AC draw will overload it.

Default I have everything turned off

All items turned off and breakers turned all off. I have tried different 15 to30 amp adapters, still same thing.

Default Short in electrical

So after going thru eliminating possible causes I found the problem is the water heater element. Disconnect it and no fuse blew. Weird how this all happened but I guess I'll go get some parts and put things back together
