HotSprings Spa is tripping the 20amp breaker

I have two breakers into my hot tub, a 30amp and a 20 amp. When I flip both to on the tub starts up, panel lights telling me the it's on and i can run the jets. Then in about 20 seconds, the hot tub trips the breaker.

I am guessing it's the heating element - where should I start?

Disconnect the heating element and see if it still trips the breaker.
