Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.
You are referencing the lugs as the ones on the breaker, is that correct?
yes, there are 3 terminal lugs
Yes, there is one lug on the breaker usually has a white dot or located inline with the white pigtail wire that connects to the neutral bar
That lug is where you connect the neutral to the spa
the other 2 lugs get the 2 hot wires to the spa
Ok, I assumed that but when i looked the screws that tighten down the wires on the breaker the 2 outside screws are anodized and the middle appears to be for a nuetral.
Is the one a little lower than the other 2?
Ok, is it along the same line as the pigtail wire coming out?
There is some type of distinguishing mark or something to show which is neutral
so the botXXXXX XXXXXne is whatever lug the pigtail wire is connected to is where I connect the neutral
The neutral is used by the breaker and the breaker does not turn it off or open the connection
straigt through feed
so, there is continuity all time between the lug and pigtail
Ok, I dont have the breaker in front of me but i have enough information to make the right connection.
Ok, here is one of square d GFCI
Thats a 50 GFCI picture i found online, neutral on left and terminal right above it is for the spa neutral
Yep thats it...Ok I got it. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX information. I'll retain this for future use
you are very welcome, glad to assist
Folks, I returned to complete job after work. The information I received from your expert was incorrect. Using a flashlight it's easier to see the terminal lugs and the tiny writing indicating what wires went where. The center terminal lug was marked specifically for the neutral and then of course each end terminal was indicated as hot.
Again I received bad info.
If you could please look over the conversation:Information was given just like you stated-tiny writing indicating what wires went whereThat is exactly what was given,
yes after re-reading you are correct. I assumed ALL square D GFCI would be constructed the same way as your pic.
But not harm no fowl.
Good lighting is the key to seeing terminal markings.
