Last year I worked on getting filtered water in to my "rv pad" and the septic tank hook up was already there. But now I have the electrical in too!! I had a friend who knows electric hook it up for me and he taught me LOTS about special tools for it and how to do it (in fact, Im feeling a little cocky now and like it is easy)!!

if someone sneaks up behind you and yells real loud, you'll get rid of them.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Hey, we're hookin my lectric up this week and i got sewer, water, lectric on gravel for probably 4 bus friends, room for probably 2 or 3 more, but no power for them.  All in NW Ohio just off i75 SE of Toledo.

That 50 amp looks like my cord will fit and we like dirt as long as it's not wet and mushy, like you sink in it.  Don't know where you are, but maybe we can visit each other.

Boy what a nice looking panel!  All the tricks!  Curious why you are (or seem to be) double-lugged on one side of the bridged 30 amp breaker?  Are you feeding a secondary 30 amp 120 volt load from one side?  I always thought double lugging on a breaker wasn't allowed (but I think it actually is in some cases), and I was thinking about unequal load on one side of a bridged breaker.  On the other hand, it's early here after a late night and the coffee ain't working so great...

Hi Teresa,

That's a nice looking setup - I'll remember that invitation when the ice and snow starts falling here next winter!

Whoa! huh? Me No Comprenda Amego?Huh?? I havent had my coffee yet this morn, no fair to throw around big electriction type talk without me understanding what you are asking/saying. I will come back to this. There is a 30, 50 and a 100amp breaker in the box..... the 100amp feeds my house and the 120 opposite side of the 30 and 50 outlets. If that didnt answer your question, let me know  Huh

Sorry!  javascript:void(0); Grin

Looking at the picture, the left hand 30 amp breaker has two wires going to it, or seems to.  I wondered about that, is all.
Why, and what the second wire was for.

Brian, do you mean the two pole 30 amp breaker?  That's the only one I see.

yeah, the two pole (I call them bridged, probably  ganged is a better term) 30 amp breaker.  The right hand side has one wire, the left hand side has two wires.  Just trying to understand and add to my general fund of trivia knowledge...

The hole on the left side with a green wire and white wire are for the 120 volt. The right side has the 30amp and 50amp. BTW the 30 amp on top is so I can run a future welder that I want to buy with 240. I do have an adapter for that 30amp to fit a mh 30amp cord.
