The breaker can detect any difference between the amount of
electricity flowing into a circuit and the amount flowing out of it. If the breaker detects a difference of at least 30 (.030) milliamps, which is the new National Electrical Code standard, it will shut off the circuit.
Why are the Marina's installing this equipment?
The short answer is that we did not have a choice. It is required by the National Electrical Code. The standard was established in an effort to address the increasing Electric Shock Drowning issue.

If the breaker you are connected to keeps shutting off, it means that your boat is leaking electricity and the breaker has detected it. You will not be able to successfully connect to the power pedestal until the leakage is found and corrected, or at least isolated.
