As best I can tell from his picture, he has a 20A GE type THQL breaker. So I went and found the time current curve for that breaker:See my reply, yeah, that should bother you more than a bad adapter.

Based on the trip curve, the breaker should trip between roughly 30 seconds and 4 minutes at 32A. So if OP stopped charging in under 30 seconds after charging current reached 32A, the breaker should not have tripped. If OP stopped charging between ~30 seconds and 4 minutes, the breaker may or may not have tripped, with tripping becoming more likely the longer it was charging.
However, if OP let it run for greater than 4 minutes at 32A and the breaker did not trip, then he has a breaker problem. But from his posts it doesn't sound like it was at 32A for more than a few seconds, so there is no issue with his circuit breaker.
