Circuit Breaker Tripping

We cannot run the 13,500 BTU AC and the Microwave in our 2007 AS at the same time without the 20 amp circuit popping. Doesn't matter if everything else electrical is shut off. Or, if the AC is already up and running. Happened at several campgrounds.
Are others having this same problem.

Tom

This is normal you have to turn off the AC to use the microwave.

However if your Airstream is set up for 50amp service and you are connected to 50 amp service then you should be able to run them all at the same time.

I've used both the 13,500 BTU AC and the microwave on quite a few occasions without the breaker tripping. I use a good line voltage monitor, and keep a careful eye on the power before I hit the button though.
