Unhappy 220 breaker

I bought a trailor and I have a problem. My dryer and my hotwater heater are wired on the same 40 amp circuit and if I use them both it blows. Is it ok to put in a higher amp breaker in or should I go out and buy a new box and split them up?

Do not put in a larger breaker. That's a recipe for burning your house down.

The dryer and hot water heater should each have their own 30-amp circuits. Neither should be on a 40-amp circuit. It's possible that this is already a fire waiting to happen.
