It is always helpful when all the facts are known. I would agree that the hair dryer adds a lot of heat into the camper. Could always use it outside or in the bath house at the campground

30 amps on a single leg sounds like a lot but it is not. What we do is turn the ac off until we are done doing what ever else. The trailer will not over heat or rise in temp if it is off for a few minutes.

Or switch the water heater to gas while the coffee is brewing and the hair is drying.

On my last 30a rig, I had a mod that allowed me to plug my water heater into the pedestal via a separate extension cord. That helped a lot.
