Add it all up and you get 35.5amp on one leg...

30amp breaker popped...
You need to run off of one leg to get 120 he means. I am just going to go rims and setup a 50amp panel down the road. Would do 50 amp right now but probably moving in a year or two and not worth the investment

You need to get the 120 from a different breaker - if you split it off of the same breaker you'll end up tripping the breaker because one leg will have too much current.

30amp breaker popped...
1500Watt at 240v = 6.25 A

With 5500 Watt it will be 29.2A. Breaker will not pop.

Correct - thanks for the link!

although that's a HWD unit... probably an issue.
