Partial loss of power

Iím having issues with partial loss of power in my home.
about two weeks ago I installed new baseboard heaters in my mobile home (4000 total watts) on a 30 amp breaker . Now this past Tuesday morning I lost power to most of my house, the kitchen outlets and the stove stayed on . This happened a few times on Tuesday and again on Wednesday. I just so happened to turn on my thermostat for my heaters on and all power came back on . I did this each time I lost power . Any idea what caused this ?

Hi, so everything was fine before you connected the heaters? Pics of how you connected the heater circuit to your panel maybe helpful , is your stove gas or electric?

You may have lost one leg of your circuit box. Pictures of what you did would be helpful but go to breaker box and turn off any circuits that you may have touched. Also turn off the mai n and turn it back on. Make sure you turn breaker all the way off than turn it back on.
