Have no heavy duty cord out side to one breaker box have used it everyday for2 years is it dangers

Asked by Elaine May 28, 2020

Answers

I'm not quite sure what you are asking. In order to use this 30 amp breaker safely, a minimum of 10 gauge wire should be used as a feed from the main electrical panel, with a distance no greater than 25'. A number 8 gauge wire is to be used for a distance 26-50'.

Wrong box for your application. This box is used mostly as a 30 amp RV connection.

It's not an Allen , it's a standard TORX lug. You can purchase a multi TORX wrench for less then $20 and it will solve your problem!

Could you show a picture of black hot wire into box connected?

Answers

No! If you can't look inside the box and identify the connection points where you are going to use 3 10 gauge wires that are connected to the corresponding connection points in your main power panel bus then you need to get professional assistance! You will connect POLE TO POLE AND GROUND TO GROUND between the buss of your breaker panel to the Midwest junction box! This junction box has its own protective breaker so you connect your 10g patch wires drectly to the buss connection lugs of the main breaker box that has the breakers for your home.

How do i wire this up ? Confusing with the breaker in the box , how do to get power from the fuse panel to this box ? Thank you

You should have a dedicated 30 amp breaker in your electrical panel and run a number 10 gauge wire to the new breaker box, with a distance no greater than 25', or a number 8 gauge wire with a distance 26-50' from the panel. Yes, you will end up with two breakers, just like is used to power your central AC with one breaker in the panel and one near the AC condenser.

Not sure if it is code were you live, but that is exactly what I did to install for my application.

Theoretically, yes. But, your local electrical code will prevail. If I were doing it over, I'd tap the power off a bigger CFI breaker. I basically use the outside breaker for an on/off switch.

#0 aluminum may be terminated with a #6 awg reducer cable crimped to the Power outlet end of your feeder. What is the actual feeder distance? as I suspect you are concerned with volt drop at a max load. Both #6 CU or Al is suitable for 30 amp service at a very significant distance.

Asked by Fig December 2, 2018

Answers

With the distance to the outlet at 90 ft, I would use the #8-2 with ground to lower the loss. The outlet comes pre wired to the breaker and outlet. Connect the Black (Hot wire) from feed breaker to breaker terminal, White (Return wire) to White terminal, and ground wire to ground terminal. Then use #10-2 with ground from the outlet to the load.

Where are the knockouts for power feed?

Good Product
Good panel. I like the breaker switch. Very convenient. Cabinet is constructed well. Wire lugs are solid. Overall pretty good. However, the receptacle isn’t heavy duty. The internal contacts are loose even after wires are securely tightened to them. A poor mold design. Don’t know if it will hold up to the abuse of unplugging and plugging in the cord all the time. Only time will tell.

This box was just what I needed, now I have power to my Travel Trailer while it is parked in the back 40 and during winter. Great compact size and very easy to work with and mount, plus really cool thing is that it is already wired between the 30amp breaker (which is nice to have) and the plug. Looks and feels like it`s made from Good Quality material. Only draw back the knock out plugs to run wire to the box are on the bottom of the box only, which was fine for me (mounted my boxes on a post). Been up and running for a good month now with no issues, my RV likes it too

I ordered this product because it had its own 30 amp breaker with in the Box alongside the power outlet which allowed you to switch off or switch on the power when installing and disconnecting the power cord. The lid can be locked if needed to keep power from being tampered with. It was easy to install came with instructions. For safety reasons I highly recommend using this power outlet because I was using an adapter which use a 110 amp extension cord which limit me from using my air conditioning and microwave at the same time on my RV. Now I do not have to worry about my breaker kicking off because it was connected to a 110 outlet. I received the product quicker than expected and in good condition. I would highly recommend this product to a friend or anyone else for that matter.

I purchased this 30 amp outdoor power outlet to power my travel trailer while parked at home. It arrived quickly, on the date promised when I placed order. The box I received was made by Midwest instead of GE, as advertised. I chose this particular box because it had the 30 amp breaker -on/off switch, which allows you to shut off power at box before plugging in or removing your power cord. Failure to shut off power can cause damage to cord blades. I had it installed by my electrician, and unfortunately once wired in no power passed through the breaker. Fortunately, the electrician had another 30 amp, single pole breaker which he installed. This resolved the issue (my cost for breaker: $20). I did not return the defective unit because the cost of having electrician out for second visit was far more than cost of the breaker. Unit is working well now and will update review in future.

Very poor instructions. No idea what kind of fitting needed for the top connection. Back to the store for more parts. Still no idea. Kludged it together, made it work. With the top plate removed, need to put screws back in the holes to keep water out. With the screws all the way in, door won't open. I'm sure it would have been fine with the correct top fitting. Still don't know what it was supposed to be.

I installed this General Electric 30 Amp 120 Volt out side our house to maintain our RV electrical when we are between camping sites. I am a retired electrician with 40+ year’s experience. This 30 Amp G.E. unit is the best one you will find for a RV. The gray G.E. paint finish is excellent, neutral connection and equipment ground are rock solid. I would advise you not to buy a unit that does not have the circuit breaker in the same enclosure as the 30 Amp plug. Be sure to turn off the beaker before disconnecting the RV. Make sure the circuit breaker is off before connecting the RV plug.

Just what I needed when the wife asked "Could we add a 30Amp circuit for my parent's camper?" This model includes the breaker so user can power up after plugging in. There's also a nice rain-tight cover and provision for a pad lock. Installation was simple, sorta. The knockout on the bottom accommodates 1/2 connections, and I used a six-foot liquidtite whip to reach a junction box for the journey in to the panel via a new circuit. Check your local codes and determine what licenses and inspections are required before diving into any electrical project. In-laws enjoyed running all systems, from hot water to ac and built-in appliances. Hope more visitors arrive with 30Amp RV needs, so we can hook-em up.
