The answer is: a 30 amp coach cannot run 3 major current appliances at the same time as I explained in post #3.
There is no problem with his coach; like all 30 amp coaches you have to power manage.
Sorry.... I should have stated.... I was able to run the coffee maker when I had both A/C's running.
The 5000 BTU A/C in the Outlaw does not draw that much current... about 5 - 7 amps depending on the setting. Heck I was able to run it off my Inverter with my small solar setup and the crappy stock house batteries for hours. I also know it is on a 15A breaker.
The 13,500 BTU A/C could be pulling 12 - 16 amps depending on how hard it is running (that is what I see with mine). This one is on a 20A breaker.
If he had both A/C's running and they were max'ed out..... he should still have about 7 amps to run a coffee maker or maybe even the microwave depending on its specs.
Now granted.... he could be using a pretty high end coffee maker but the ones I usually see in RV's are probably drawing 5 - 6 amps. Ours draws about 5 amps. You also have to factor in the Converter and what it is doing at that moment in time.
So I guess of you add up all the math and what if's... then he could be over drawn and that's his issue. But then again.... maybe not. All I know is I never had an issue tripping the breaker at the pedestal when running both A/C's and making coffee.
