This breaker was found in a mobile office trailer panel, it is a C-H BR common trip.

See I have this unusual 240 volt air conditioner, it draws 90 amps on one phase and only 30 amps on the other.

I couldn't have been rigged if it was just two single poles it wouldn't have the "common trip" on the 100 amp side and the case looks like one molded case not two seperate breakers. very unusual

but one thing if that person look at the side of breaker and see the " rivet " like factory stamp type not like aftermarket stamp .

now that is very oddball something like this is very very rare to see it unless it was specal made for specal useage

Merci, Marc

The breaker had not been tampered with, it was the Main in the trailers load center.

It is obviously a manufacturers "ooops", probably made on a Monday morning or a Friday afternoon.

Cool
Looks like it has a few mile son it. So it has been working ok?
Maybe safe to assume it was 100 amps on each leg and the 35 just the wrong handle got assembled??????
