changing breaker box

I have a 200 service drop from the line which goes to my power pole box with 2 100 breakers, which then feeds into my trailer box which has a 100 main breaker. Would there be a problem if I were to put in a new breaker box in the trailer with a 150 main breaker?

Not if its fed from the 100a breaker. Although it serves no purpose as the system is still only capable of delivering 100a.


Sarcasm is my friend
I'm here to learn too, i do mostly commercial/industrial/new construction and this place is a great way to pick up tips on residential from some good electrical minds. Excuse the spelling, my phone has a mind of it's own.
