I have a guest house that we use as storage. We have a second bathroom in there which gets used a lot. We’ve never had problems with losing power or tripping the breaker.
A few weeks ago the power to the guest house shut off, it tripped the breaker for the guest house as well as the main house breaker. They have put a new breaker for the guest house but after about 30 minutes of running electricity in the guest house the two breakers trip again. The day the power shut off we had a landscaper cleaning our yard and there was a small portion of the underground feed wire that pokes out of the ground and we think they may have hit it with a weed eater and made a hole, which we did find a hole in the wire.
It has rained for 3 weeks straight which is why we are barely fixing it and the power has been off since then. Would anyone know if because the under ground feed wire has a hole this would cause the problem of tripping both breakers?
