What is the size of the breaker?
I would check the size of the breaker and measure the amp load.
Just guessing the load:
2 Reverse Cycle Cooling/Heating units 10 amps
Water Heater 3 amps
Battery charger 3 amps
Total: 16 amps
The breaker might be 25-30 amps and weak and need replacing...
The heating element in the water heater has developed a pinhole and is causing the breaker which is probably a ground fault breaker to open. The heating element in your water heater has a life of about 3-5 years before this pin-hole will develop. When you buy the heating element, be sure to buy a gasket, or be prepared to make one.
Hope this helps you.
