A handy list of average amps for typical appliances which we received from our camp may provide a clue to the problem at hand.

Air conditioner 12.5 amps
Converter (with nothing on) 1.5
Electric water heater (6gal) 12.5
Electric refrigerator 4.0
Microwave 12.5
Electric coffee pot 9.0
Toaster 10.0
Hair dryer 10.0
TV 2.0
Electric fry pan 10.0
Iron 10.0
Food processor 6.0

If the AC, frig, water heater are in use (29 amps) and you throw in the coffee pot, fry pan and someone drying their hair (29 amps), making some bacon in the microwave (12.5 amps) might get you in trouble. Do you know what difference the thermo upgrade adds to your system? Check to see what else was in operation when the AC coming on tripped the breaker. Not to say that there isn't another issue--but we've all been in the over-applianced mode at one time or another. Let us know what you discover!
