Usually one of the fans is dedicated to the AC. I don't know what "trips" describes .. does it blow a fuse or resettable breaker? The "Low freon" sw should prevent the clutch from engaging but I'm not sure what you are describing ,,, sorry

What I mean is that if the Dash Fan or Blower Control for the AC is off, Then the Radiator cooling fan will work normally and go off and on by itself. If I turn the Dash Fan on without pushing the A/C button, then every time the radiator fan clicks on it triggers the A/C clutch to engage as though the A/C was on. So It puts a load on the engine every time the radiator fan comes on because the compressor clutch engages. Thanks for your help.
