Plugging into 110 keeps tripping breaker

I have attempted to plug in my RW into a 110 outlet to charge the batteries, but each time I tried to plug it in it tripped the breaker. I went through checking to ensure everything was off, but each time I plugged it in it trips the breaker. I am thinking that maybe it is the refrigerator that may be causing my problem. I initially was unable to find a way to turn of the frig, but just read of a possible way to do it. I will try this tomorrow and see if this will solve my problem.
Has anyone had this type of problem? If so, what solved it?
Thanks

What kind of frig do you have? Is your electric water heater on?

The frig is a residential. I did check the hot water heater, along with anything else I could think of that may be on.
Thanks

When I'm away from the camper for a week and I show up the only thing on is the converter and the refrigerator and I'm drawing 4 amps on only one leg.

Using an adaptor going from 50 amp plug to a 30 amp plug and then attaching a 110 plug adaptor to the 30 amp plug.

Just what I do and my 110 seems ok...
Maybe you have a weak breaker or something else is on ?
maybe a tv or your microwave ?

Do you have 2 or 3 batteries ? are they GOOD batteries ?
We have 3 in our 38gk and they are all good.

You can put the Samsung Res into demo mode by holding freezer and power freeze for about 3 seconds - toggle it to cooling mode by doing the same...

but don't think that is it, even if the fridge is on, my 110 circuit will handle it... because it's running off the 3rd battery.

good luck !

what is a 110 plug adaptor? do you mean the type that will plug into a regular receptacle? Turn off all breakers, not the main. Turn them on 1 breaker at a time to see what circuit is tripping you up.

Check the high loads, make sure both ACs are off, and the Hot water tank electric.
