Troubleshooting power A/C
1973, 31', Internat'l SLY
The A/C runs and puts out cool air, but after 10-20 minutes it pops the circuit breaker. Initially, I had an extra extention cord in the plug-in circuit and figured that was causing the overload. BTW, the circuit breaker in my house box was the one that tripped. This happened 4-6 times. I removed the fiberglass cover and super cleaned the cooling fins, but it still tripped the circuit breaker.
So, I moved the trailer to a spot closer to a plug-in. It ran longer -- cooling, just fine -- but finally after about 30 minutes the circuit breaker in the trailer tripped.
It is an Armstrong, Columbus, OH, 20 amp. unit.
Any ideas for a fix?
