Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If the breaker is cutting out this indicates that one or both ac units are drawing to much power.This occurs when the compressor or fan is drawing to much power and it is usually the compressor itself.It may just be one of the ac units at fault here with the compressor needing replaced.This wont be an issue with low freon.

The ac units need to be tested to locate which one is causing the excessive draw then from there it can be tested further to locate if this is the compressor at fault or another component at fault with that ac unit itself.This usually requires an amp meter to test the draw.
