Have a surge protector plugged in on the pedestal and that breaker is fine.
The camper is an 07 and gets used alot and the a/c pretty much stays on for 6 months a year.
No other excessive power uses expect a couple of fans in the bedrooms.
So do breakers wear out?
What other appliances are you using when the breaker trips? With your AC operating a lot, if you have an electric water heater and that turns on then you use the microwave......guess what is going to trip? Yes breakers do go bad but you need to find out what was causing it to trip in the first place. We have a surge guard and when it's plugged in, it will display your total amp draw. With our AC & water heater going......there isn't much room for anything else to operate until the water heater turns off.
Like Roy said....Lowes carries the breakers, probably not a bad idea to get one as a spare. They are cheap.
