One thing I should have mentioned is that I have already run the 3/4" PVC and the 10/2 wire out to the cabana/shed......so I don't have 10/3. What can I do with the 10/2 that is already run? Can I use this 30a sub panel?
Thanks Mike. Agreed and wish I had of known about this site prior to having the 20 minute conversation from the Home Depot "expert" and pulling this 10/2 wire! :)
So since this 30a disconnect switch has one top "line" lug for each fuse which I now bridge, do I run the white and the bare copper wire to the other small side post (it has 3 screws). I guess I then split the load and 14/2 wire across these two fused lower "load" lugs correct?
Do I use the single 30a breaker at my main panel then?
Also.....do I need a ground rod at the shed wired to the switch ground lug?
OK thanks. Sorry, not sure what a "bond screw" is and where in the disconnect enclosure. I can get a new lug to secure the copper ground to the case and understand that the neutral (white) would be secured to the common side lug area.
I have attached pictures of the switch enclosure.
So just to be clear on the ...... use GFI outlets even though the disconnect has two 15a push button breakers in the screw-in fuse holders? I was going to do that but thought it might be overkill with the breakers in the disconnect. No problem getting GFIs if it is preferred way to do it.
Thanks again for all your help Mike!
