Can I extend the neutral wire on the surgebreaker?

Only open space is at the bottom of the box, Neutral bar is at the top of the box. Can I add same gauge wire to the white surgebreaker to make it longer?
Asked by: Zoneshopman
No. Increasing the length of the white wire reduces the level of protection.

Do I need the Surge Suppressor supplied by the Untility

I have a QO Surgebreaker in my panel. I also have a utility supplied surge suppressor on my meter that was installed by previous owner. Do I need both ?
Asked by: Wayne
You don't need both, but it doesn't hurt anything as long as they both are working. It does offer a bit more protection.

Will this surge protector work if main is shut off and running on external generator

Asked by: larrym61008
Yes since it is the load side of the main breaker. But normal home use generators are somewhat "dirty" without the very tight regulation of normal utility grade power. With the exception of lightning strikes nearby while operating on the normal electric utility supply, It is more likely that the surge breaker could operate during standby operations than when fed from the electric utility.

QO Surgebreaker Surge Protective Device Takes 2 Load Center Spaces is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed Product for Any Home Ownwer This simple to install surge protector protects our entire home. After lightning striking our home twice, resulting in the need to replace the lawn sprinkler control box both times at a much larger expense than one of these, we found out about and bought it. Peace of mind at a low cost. Ahhh!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Install Seems to work (judging by the light). It was easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Install Came in 2 days. Simple install since I had a double breaker opening at the top where my main line came into panel. The white common wire was about 17" long and reached the bus bar at the bottom of my panel. Light remains green. Will see if it helps spot surges we get in a few rooms periodacly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple - Peace of Mind Very easy to install. If you are comfortable installing a breaker, you can easily install this whole house surge protector. It took about 15 minutes to install. I had to move two breakers down the panel so that it could be as close to ground as possible. Given the number of computers and electronic appliances (fridge, stove, microwave, water heater, dishwasher, furnace) installing a whole house surge protector is a lot cheaper than replacing appliances or having them repaired. (Note, I still have my surge suppressor strips in place ... just in case.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to install A surge protector was suggested by the furnace repair guy.I contacted Wi. Public Service for information. This one meets Wi. code. It quickly snaps in and one wire to ground. Install it as the top breaker and keep the pig tail short as possible. Now my house is protected. I also use surge strips as recommended for more sensitive electrinics
