Default Electrical Problems BAD!

I have a 2006 Montana Mountineer 36ft and Everything has worked great until the past week.First my mom and sister were staying in it and ran the coffee pot and blow dryer at the same time which blew the GFI. I replaced it and it still trips the new one as soon as I flip the breaker.I even took the line wires out of the GFI and it trips.Second, the AC just tripped the breaker and now the breaker wont reset with the thermostat off.Please give me help.

It could be that the breaker has gone bad, especially since you changed out the GFI outlet, try changing the breaker (lowes or Homedepot) it has to be the same brand or one that is compatible with the box, also, some residential homes are using what's called an AFI (arc fault) breaker, usually identified by a green band on the breaker face (I hate these breakers) they are very sensitive to flashes from any switch and will trip at the drop of a hat. If it's not the breaker or the GFI outlet, then you have to have a short in the wiring somewhere (there's no magic to it, it all happens by logic) or maybe something is not wired correctly. Keep checking.
