Wanted: UHaul Double Circuit Breaker

Does anyone have the double circuit breaker found on the UHaul 16' Camper they are willing to sell? If so, please PM.

Thanks

Who is the manufacturer of the circuit breakers? Many Mfg of residential electrical panels and circuit breakers use a buss of similar design and though not code compliant their breakers are interchangeable. IE A Square D Homeline Circuit Breaker will fit in a Cutler Hammer (Eaton) BR style circuit breaker panel. Home Depot , Menards and Electrical wholesale house stock the most common styles of breakers. Purchase a non CTL breaker

The mini panel was manufactured by Todd Engineering Sales, Inc. (no longer in business). It looked like they used a thermal circuit breaker. I am trying to add one additional line for the AC, but I want to keep the look of the original mini-panel.

Residential circuit breakers are normally thermal magnetic .The Mfg of the circuit breaker should have its name shown on the individual breaker IE. ITE , Siemens
GE , Square D , Cutler Hammer, Zinsco , FPE , Challenger , Bulldog , Frank Adams ETC The cost to get a circuit breaker UL listed would be cost prohibitive for a small mfg of RV converters so all the ones I've seen use circuit breakers made by a major breaker mfg

Steve; Pat wants the same breaker as was original equipment in the Uhauls which is a little push button type of thing that mounts on a 4" box. Ours was mounted on a box next to a ground fault single outlet on the end of the upper cabinet. I tossed it long ago as it was nowhere near adequate for the amount of power usage we needed in our camper.

W W Grainger sells the round style pushbutton thermal overcurrent device .Rated for 15 amps and 250 VAC but it only comes as a SP device . The cost was under $3 but that was a few years ago

Pat, you might try asking on the Uhaul group on Facebook. There may be someone who hasn't tossed theirs yet or is willing to toss it your way. Good Luck!

Thanks... I did post on FB. I know it would be simpler to upgrade the system, but I am trying to keep the vintage look.

Small aircraft use the same type of breaker and I would suspect are of a higher quality. Saw them on the float plane as we were flying back from the fly in lake last Sat. I googled and found several sources somewhat pricey

Thanks.... If I can't find an original UHaul breaker panel, I will likely upgrade to a new converter / distribution panel.

I had a trailer that used breakers that were no longer manufactured and found used breakers on Ebay for a fair price and they worked.

Here is a picture, I plugged it in and it works?
Breaker is out, push breaker in and it turns off circuit.
Let go of button in pops back out. Maybe a bad breaker.
25' cord.
$40 shipped.
