Hot Water Heater Trips CB

Hi all,
About a month & half ago I flushed & sanitized my freshwater tank and system. I drained the hot water tank. I refilled the freshwater tank and made sure all water points (hot & cold) flowed smoothly (all air out). Since then the hot water breaker trips about once a day. It's a 6 gallon tank on a 2017 Windsport. Anyone have any idea about what might be going on.

Need water heater make and model.
But, just guessing…..does it work on just propane? If yes ok good.
Plug in or generator, trips breaker, good, breaker doing its job.
1. The electrical side element shorted…..
2. Need to check ohms on electrical side unit.
3. Loose wire on electrical side.
4. Burned out electrical side unit, replace with new
All good, yeah.
Rvworks on youtube might help you understand better than me blabbing around.
Hope this helps,
