Starcool trips small breaker

My starcool has started tripping the small breaker under the seat in the electrical wiring panel. Not the main breaker. I reset it and it works fine, sometimes for a while sometimes not very long. Sportsmobile recommended replacing the breaker. They said that as they get older, they sometimes heat up and will trip. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions? thanks in advance. Fernando

I would agree - replace the breaker.

Re: Starcool trips small breaker

I would also do that first. Use the same rated breaker.
Is this happening on shore power only or also when driving?

It seems to be only when driving. However, we have not used the Starcool recently on shore power so I cannot say for sure. Thanks a lot for the input. Fernando
