Customer Question
New to us 2014...

New to us 2014 Sabre 33 CKTS 5er. With the rig plugged into 20 amp circuit and 120 volts on the voltmeter. Have a dedicated 15amp circuit for microwave. With main breaker on trying to check the microwave circuit and breaker trips as soon as pushed. Pulled the breaker and did a continuity check which it passed. Reinstalled and still trips when pushed. Should I replace the breaker or dig deeper?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked all the fuses? Do you have a wiring diagram?

Not the 12volt fuses. everything else good and no wiring diagram

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '14 RV?

Sabre 33 CKTS

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Testing breaker

Are you you using an adapter on the main cord plugging into a standard household outlet?

Do you have the microwave plugged into it's own power source (outside source)
